The (Movie) Company you Keep

It was a lonely weekend at the domestic box office for some, but not for Mark Wahlberg, as his “Lone Survivor” arrived to the isolated land of #1 with an impressive $38.5 in secluded funds (while holding the honor of being the second largest opening weekend in January ever, behind the $40 million 2008’s “Cloverfield” fearfully acquired). Animation was still surviving and thriving in a colorful “Frozen” field located at #2 with $15 million. Feeling all kinds of heat from the competition was “The Wolf of Wall Street,” still looking to steal as many cinematic bucks as possible from the #3 place with $9 million. Our “American Hustle” friends and enemies, while not hurrying out of the box office limelight anytime soon, appeared to be lightening up on their greedy ways as they graciously shared the #4 spot with “The Legend of Hercules,” with each tale being told this weekend for $8. 6million a piece.
Survivors took on sisterly love and sagas of the legendary kind as moviegoers traveled down Wall Street and war-torn areas while experiencing weird flashbacks to those wacky 1970s. The coolest characters on the most extraordinary adventures provided an odd but oddly comforting respite from the bleak weather.
