A Memorable Weekend at the Movies

What an “Epic” weekend! The stars aligned at a “Fast & Furious” fury, all headed toward that big screen in the cinematic sky (as well as our local multiplex). “Fast & Furious 6” arrived in first place at the North American box-office finish line, carrying along a cargo which at last count contained $98.5 cool million. “The Hangover III” hung behind in second place with $42.4 million to aid their morning-after acetaminophen fund. Soaring beneath them while traveling in starry space was the crew of the “Star Trek into Darkness,” who found light, as well as $38 million, at third place. It was a long, “Epic” weekend for our animated friends, who spiritedly appeared at #4 with $34.2 million. Overseeing all of this action among the box-office newcomers was “Iron Man 3,” who bravely watched over the gang from the #5 spot where $19.4 million was safely kept.
Gridlock and gas prices were nowhere to be found this long, holiday weekend at our neighborhood movie theaters (although concession stand lines can seem pretty long when coming attractions await). Franchises, family-friendly fun and fast cars were on big, beautiful display, as were treks among the stars, triumphs among our heroes and trilogies causing no morning-after headaches. The best views were found thanks to the big screen!
From seaside days to starry nights, may this last week in May lead to even more blockbusters (“After Earth” has been safely returned to its movie-loving sphere)…
