Taking No (Movie) Prisoners

Heroic Hugh Jackman held “Prisoners,” a.k.a. action-seeking moviegoers, captive this weekend, coming in first at the domestic box office with $21.4 million. Thrill seekers were still on the edge of their seats, enthralled by the contents contained within the “Insidious Chapter 2” scary for the timid while taking the terrifying tale to the #2 spot with $14.5 million. “The Family” of all families found a safe haven at the #3 spot with $7 million. “Instructions Not Included” but certainly welcomed by the Spanish comedy looking for long-term box office success but settling for the #4 spot with $5.7 million. Dancers endured the “Battle of the Year,” impressing a select group while winning the #5 spot with $5 million.
Kidnappers, crime busters and comedy (in two languages) had their cinematic say this weekend as family values, Hollywood style, found a profitable home. Battles were won as break dancers found a stage; sinister plots prevailed while prisoners abounded, all free to view the movie of their choosing. What choice did you make?
From seaside days to starry nights, the week ahead comes with THE most interesting choices, promising to hold us entertainingly captivated…
