Recapping Last Weekend
A trio of movies in their first weekend of release topped the box office over the weekend. Fifty Shades Freed took the weekend box office crown with a $38.56 million opening weekend.
Peter Rabbit beat expectations to bring in $25 million over the weekend. The 15:17 To Paris was just shy of expectations with a $14.55 million opening.
Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle topped the $10 million mark for the eighth weekend in a row and has brought in $365 million domestically to date.
Opening This Weekend
If you believe everything you read on the internet, Black Panther may just be the best movie ever made. Kameron Austin Collins called it “Marvel’s first genuine masterpiece” in The Ringer.
Most everyone is predicting a massive opening weekend for the latest Marvel movie. Todd M. Thatcher revised his initial prediction and now predicts an opening weekend of $178.8 million for Black Panther.

No one is calling Early Man, which opens in theaters across the country this weekend, a timely animated flick. Nick Park sums it up pretty well in his review of the film for The New York Times.
“Not that anyone could outgrow this kind of movie, which manages to be fresh and delightful even as some of its jokes are so old — how old? So old that the last time I heard them, I fell off my dinosaur I was laughing so hard.”
Tom Hiddleston, Eddie Redmayne and Maisie Williams lead the vocal cast of Early Man. Redmayne and Williams dressed up in caveman costumes and had a sword fight to prepare for their roles.
Todd M. Thatcher predicts an opening weekend of $5.7 million for Early Man.

See I, Tonya or Lady Bird at Hi-Pointe Theatre This Weekend
Hi-Pointe Theatre is a hidden gem of St. Louis. The Hi-Pointe Backlot is even more so, hidden behind the main theater on McCausland Avenue. Hi-Pointe has been around since 1922 at the Southwest corner of Forest Park and below the world’s largest Amoco sign.
Hi-Pointe Backlot came on the scene in 2015 on the second floor of a building right behind the main theater. It took three years of rehab before the owners of Hi-Pointe spent 60 straight days putting the final touches on the space. The 48-seat theater has drawn stellar reviews from movie fans.
See Lady Bird this weekend at Hi-Pointe Backlot, while I, Tonya plays at Hi-Pointe Theatre.
