A Labor of Musical Love

Music was in the air this long, holiday weekend, as moviegoers headed in “One Direction: (boasting) This is Us” coming in first at the domestic box office with $17 million. Also making beautiful music in the most civic-minded fashion was “Lee Daniels’ The Butler,” who, ever the gentleman, politely stepped down to the #2 spot where $14.7 White-House-approved million was waiting. Our most popular imagined family stating “We’re the Millers” continued to con the masses, as they settled in at the #3 position with $12.6 million. The “Planes” soon destined to land among summer’s animated stars followed the runway to the #4 spot with $7.7 million. Despite “Instructions Not (being) Included,” the Spanish-language family comedy surprisingly debuted at the #5 spot with $7.5 million.
Movie aficionados were treated to the most colorful scene within the safety of their very own “Planes” this weekend while those lacking direction found solace from the “World’s End” on the big screen.
Summer may soon be fading into the sunset (to join the lonely “Lone Ranger” and our unappreciated, vanishing stars) but movies and madcap mayhem remain larger than REEL life as the music plays on.
In the weeks to come, we’ll welcome ambitious, for-the-Academy’s-consideration films, which promise to leave summer’s celebrities in the (star) dust.
From seaside days to starry nights, summer’s imminent departure promises fall’s fantastic delights…
