Heaven Sent Storytelling

At first glance, the weekend appeared to be a bit ominous, as moviegoers and sci-fi aficionados met supernatural terrors within their very own haunted house of horrors. Horror and sci-fi tales headed to the back row, however, for in the end, American heroes, animated creatures and the place where the angels dwell held the biggest court at the domestic box office. “Captain America: Winter Soldier” was enjoying spring-like temperatures from the #1 place at the domestic box office for the third week in a row with $26.6 million. The animated sequel “Rio 2” took that colorful trip to the Amazon while maintaining the #2 spot with $22.2 million. The faithful were inspired to declare, “Heaven is for Real” from the divine #3 area with $21.5 million (with a total of $28.5 since its Wednesday opening). A mind-bending experience was occurring at the #4 locale, with flashes of “Transcendence” taking place to the tune of $11.1 million. Comedy and creep fest lovers visited the “Haunted House 2” scary for an extended stay from the #5 abode with $9.1 million.
This weekend, we experienced Marvel magic, witnessed paranormal activity coupled with ghostly visions, posthumously met a computer scientist (how’s that for creepy?) and still had time left over for some much-needed family-friendly fun in a transcendent place filled with Heavenly beings.
From seaside days to starry nights, may heavenly sights meet with everyone’s delight this movie-loving week…
