Holiday Crashes but doesn’t Conquer the Dark World

“Into each life some rain must fall, some days must be dark and dreary.” Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
The dark held a profitable spot within the lives of our big-time characters at our weather-proofed movie theaters this weekend, as “Thor: (found solace and success within) The Dark World,” ultimately finding heroes and humanity waiting once again at the #1 spot at the domestic box office with $38.5 million. Following a 14-year absence, things were looking anything but dark and dreary for “The Best Man (whose) Holiday” reunion/sequel held the 2nd best spot with $30.6 million. The “Last Vegas” trip to that glamorous arena known as #3 continued to inspire comedy and corruption among the aged and the agile with $8.9 million. Our family-friendly “Free Birds” traveled back in time to enjoy their freedom as well as the non-poultry fare from the historic #4 land with $8.3 million. Ever the gentleman, “Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa” paling around with his not-so-bad competition at the #5 spot with $7.7 million.
Thanksgiving and Christmas were spotlighted this weekend, with Marvel mania still flying high through the dark of night and the bright light emanating from the big screen. The age limit was raised once again as the humorists shook hands with the heroes.
From seaside days to starry nights, may your celebratory movie days be rain-free and entertainment full…
