A Hot Holiday Weekend

Happily living in the profitable, present moment, the “X-Men: (counting the) Days of Future Past” sped right past the hairy horror and the party crashers, arriving at the #1 spot at the domestic box office this long, holiday weekend with $90.7 million. Always the sore loser, “Godzilla” stomped his way to the #2 land with $31.43 million, leaving a trail for his life-size competition to follow. Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore were having a “Blended” good time from the comedic #3 spot with $14.35 million. Our “Neighbors” were still enjoying their version of the good times, albeit a bit more R-rated than the blended bunch, this week from the #4 neighborhood with $13.9 million. “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” swung his successful web to the #5 region with $7.8 million.
The neighborhood watch cleverly discovered the greatest celebrations occurring at our local movie theaters, where a blockbuster cast had the coolest time staying in the moment (while ironically searching for their future, sequel-inspiring selves). Quality family time was integral to the festivities, where Spider-Man continued to amaze even the ferocious fire breather (who’s working on his people skills).
As the temperature was heating up on the outside, was there a better place to chill out (and avoid holiday traffic) than inside your neighborhood multiplex, where cool and hot are always memorably blended to perfection?
