Recapping Last Weekend

Black Panther continued its dominance at the box office for a fifth weekend in a row. The massive Marvel hit brought in $26.6 million in its fifth weekend of release to take the weekend box office crown.

Tomb Raider was the top debut film of the weekend with a $23.6 million opening and I Can Only Imagine surprised everyone by riding the religious wave to a $17.1 million opening.

Love, Simon brought in $11.75 million in its debut over the weekend.

Black Panther Smashing Box Office Marks

As of this writing, Black Panther has sold more than $610 million worth of tickets in domestic theaters and $1.2 billion worldwide.

It currently sits in second place on the list of highest-grossing Marvel films ever and will likely pass The Avengers by the time the box office totals for the last two days are finalized.

The success of the Ryan Coogler-directed film out of the gate as been astonishing.

Black Panther passed the $610 million mark on its 33rd day of release while it took Avengers 65 days in theaters to pass the same mark.

While Panther isn’t in the same category as Star Wars: The Force Awakens yet, it is on a better pace than Avatar, the second highest-grossing movie ever domestically. That film took 50 days in theaters to pass $610 million.

With a decent weekend, Chadwick Doesem, Michael B. Jordan and company will move into the top five in terms of the highest-grossing films ever on U.S. soil.

See Annihilation or Thoroughbreds 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 Thoroughbreds this weekend at Hi-Pointe Backlot, while Annihilation plays at Hi-Pointe Theatre.

See Forever My Girl This Weekend At Keller 8

Forever My Girl and Gringo begin showing at Keller 8 Cinema in South County this weekend.

Are you a sucker for a sappy love story? Go see Alex Roe and Jessica Rothe in Forever My Girl. Rothe is 2-for-2 in my book after her playing the lead in this film as well as the enjoyable Happy Death Day. She’ll go for the hat trick in June when Valley Girl comes out. Though the musical remake of the 1983 Nicholas Cage film doesn’t sound like one where someone dies, I really hope her character gets to kill Logan Paul’s character.

Make It A Redbox Night With Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, Justice League, Ferdinand and Pitch Perfect 3 are all now available to rent at your local Redbox this weekend.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle
