The Movie Speed of Life

Mahatma Gandhi once said, “There is more to life than increasing its speed.” The rate at which one is traveling can certainly add life to a story, however, as witnessed this fast-paced weekend at the movies, when “Mr. Peabody & Sherman” (“underdogs” no more) blew past their speedy competition and ultimately reached the finish line, a.k.a., domestic box office, first with $21.2 million. “300: Rise of an Empire” fell to the kingdom of #2 with $19.1 million. Action-oriented moviegoers, meanwhile, felt the “Need for Speed” as they raced to their local movie theaters to catch the just-released video-game inspired flick, arriving at the #3 place with $17.8 million. It was a “Non-Stop” race this weekend, indeed, as the air invaders safely disembarked at the #4 landing with $10.6 million during their third week out in space. New to the neighborhood, “Tyler Perry’s Single Mom’s Club” found multiple, unattached fans waiting at the solo spot of #5 with $8.3 million.
Adventure continued to accumulate space in the air, an empire started its slow descent, single moms had their say and racers traveled at high velocity but animation was the true champion, beating the big guns on the big screen. Our cast was moving faster than the speed of (movie) light this weekend, heading right to a movie theater near you.
From seaside days to starry nights, may you find the quickest route leading to the closest movie theater this week, where entertainment is always right on time…
