Recapping Last Weekend
Avengers: Infinity War easily took the box office crown during the first weekend of May with a second weekend just shy of $115 million.
The Overboard remake made $14.7 million in its debut weekend while Tully was just shy of $3.3 and Bad Samaritan made $1.7 million.
The Anna Faris-led remake of the Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell classic nearly doubled projections.
Opening This Weekend
Life of the Party
Melissa McCarthy is back on the big screen this weekend with Life of the Party. A series of events sends McCarthy’s Deanna back to college, where her daughter is in her senior year. The pair of course end up experiencing college and sorority life together.
Like Tammy and The Boss before this, Life of the Party was written by McCarthy and real-life husband Ban Falcone. The prior two films were fairly successul at the box office, earning around $85 and $63 million, respectively.
If you tend to enjoy Melissa McCarthy, you’ll probably enjoy this one. Films that can be described as “screwball comedy that relies on extreme stereotypes” tend not to fare well with the critics, but will make you laugh nonetheless.
Todd M. Thatcher predicts an opening weekend of $19.4 million for Life of the Party.

See Isle of Dogs at Hi-Pointe Backlot 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.
Tully plays at Hi-Pointe Theatre while Isle Of Dogs moves to Hi-Pointe Backlot this weekend.
