It’s How You Play the Movie Game

Jackie Robinson once said, “How you played in yesterday’s game is all that counts.” Major Baseball League’s first African American player would be pleased to know the dramatic account of his life played well in yesterday’s movie game, as well as Friday and Saturday’s, as audiences found “42” reasons and beyond to take in the Harrison Ford-driven film, making its home base the #1 spot at the U.S. box office with $27.3 million. “Scary Movie 5,” which arrives seven years after “Scary Movie 4,” limped in at #2 with a disappointing $15.2 million. “The Croods” continued to create quite a stir, taking their cave man qualities on the road to #3 with $13.2 million. “G.I. Joe (continued in the game of) Retaliation” against poor ticket sales, setting up a retaliatory shop at #4 with $10.8 million. The “Evil Dead,” last week’s #1, were seen roaming the Earth around the #5 spot with $9.5 million.

Animation, action figures turned action stars, the evil dead and the eternal legends, baseball and beauty of all Croods and colors; clearly, there are more than “42” reasons to take a trip to your local movie theater!

From seaside days to starry nights, may your week be frightfully free and filled with legendary, movie-style moments…
