Recapping Last Weekend
It was never a question whether Avengers: Infinity War would rule the box office over the weekend. The question was just how much would it make? Domestically, the film pulled in just shy of $258 million worth of receipts. Worldwide it topped $630 million and as of this writing it has taken in more than $840 million.
Infinity War managed to top the $240 million prediction we shared with you last week.
A Quiet Place continued its strong box office run, taking in $11 million in its fourth weekend of release. The film with a budget of just $17 million has now topped $150 million domestically.
Black Panther earned $4.7 million last weekend in its 11th weekend of release. Sitting above $688 million domestically as of this writing, if could top $700 million before its theater run is over.
Opening This Weekend
There’s a remake of the Goldie Hawn & Kurt Russell hit Overboard coming to theaters this weekend. Why? We don’t really know. Ana Faris takes over for Hawn while Eugenio Derbez steps in to Russell’s shoes. One notable change is that the roles of the characters are reversed in this remake. Instead of being the one with amnesia, Faris is the single mother who takes in Derbez in what she calls an “international take on the original.”
Don’t let the fact that this remake really shouldn’t have been made keep you from going to see it. This Overboard will probably be enjoyable, but do yourself a favor and sit down to watch the original too. Just hold the remake to that standard.
Todd M. Thatcher predicts an opening weekend of $7.8 million for Overboard.
Variety compares Bad Samaritan, in theaters this weekend, to Silence of the Lambs in its review of the film. Kerry Condon, Robert Sheehan and David Tennant star in the thriller about two men who break into a home with the intent to rob it, but end up finding a woman held captive.
Condon plays the captive woman while Sheehan is the would-be burglar and Tennant this homeowner.
Todd M. Thatcher predicts a $2.1 million opening weekend for Bad Samaritan.

Tully, in movie theaters this weekend, stars Charlize Theron as a mother dealing with postpartum depression. The film has generated enough controversy before its release that writer Diablo Cody , who also wrote Juno, talked to The New York Times about it.
“I don’t want anybody to think that I sat down and thought, ‘Oh, I’ll write a gripping and entertaining movie about something that I know nothing about,’” she said. “I would never presume to do that.”
Her words were in response to people like those complaining to Postpartum Support International having only seen the trailer for the film.
Director Jason Reitman, Theron and Diablo also collaborated on the 2011 film Young Adult. Theron earned a Golden Globe nomination for her portrayal of a divorced, alcoholic writer in the film.
Todd M. Thatcher predicts an opening weekend of $5 million for Tully.
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.
