Long Live the Movie Hero

Will Rogers once said, “Being a hero is about the shortest- lived profession on earth.” Tell that to our oh-so-professional “Thor: (rescuing damsels in distress in) The Dark World,” where the spotlight shined brightly on our latest MARVELous hero, leading straight to the #1 spot at the domestic box office with $86.1 million. “Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa” to the good movie folks hanging out at the #2 spot with $11.3 million. Our latest colorful cuties were still trying to “Free Birds” from dinner plates while serving up the liveliest entertainment near the corner of #3 with $11.2 million. The “Last Vegas” trip for our mature foursome ended at the flashy #4 location with $11.1 million. Bestselling novel-turned entertaining “Ender’s Game” lost out to heroes and horrific seniors but won the round leading to the #5 place with $10.3 million.
Champions of all kinds were alive and well this weekend at our movie theaters, anticipating a long stay (despite the comments of cowboys) on the largest screens. Entertainment was clearly unlimited to age, as cartoonish poultry and questionable seniors came to play the ultimate Hollywood-inspired game (aliens included). Moviegoers were the actual winners, of course, with every movie on our schedule designed for success.
From seaside days to starry nights, may your week include the greatest games found fortuitously at the local multiplex…
