A Marvel of a Movie Weekend

The “Wolverine” came out to play this last weekend in July, preying on the competition and coming in at #1 at the domestic box office with $55 million (more than $10 million less than studio 20th Century Fox projected). “The Conjuring” conjured up a horror of an audience in its second week, sending the low-budget wonder to the second position with $22.1 million. The sunshine-colored minions shouted “Despicable Me 2” their family-friendly fans, this time from the #3 spot with $16 million. Family friendly but studio-disappointing “Turbo” continued to move slowly at the box office, as the animated gang spent its second week out at the #4 spot with $13.3 million. The “Grown Ups 2” mature for mutants and computer graphics spent their summer weekend at #5 with $11.5 million.
So, what did we learn at the movies this weekend? So much! Retractable metal claws can be fantastically functional, Marvel mania is thriving with mutants beating the minions as sequels continued to soar. We’ve learned snails really are slow, horror provides a strangely nice escape from the heat and being grown-up, apparently, isn’t as overrated as we thought.
From seaside days to starry nights, may your week ahead be horror-free and hero filled, with colorful entertainment and grown-up fun…
