Cinematic Staying Power

Everybody’s favorite “Guardians of the Galaxy” were experiencing life-changing moments (and box-office transformations) this weekend while making moviegoers feel safe from the #1 place at the domestic box office with $17.6 million. The “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” trotted to the safety of the #2 land with $16.8 million. With summer soon departing, audiences were left wondering, “If I Stay” for a double feature, in particular those involving young people in life-altering situations, will blockbuster season continue indefinitely? They patiently waited for an answer from the #3 dwelling with $16.4 teary-eyed million. The questionable crime stoppers among us were shouting, “Let’s Be Cops” from the criminally-correct area known as #4 with $11 million. “When the Game Stands Tall,” fans of football dramas line up, facing off at the #5 zone with $9 million.
There was little sin to speak of in our cinematic cities this weekend, as book adaptations were once again on everyone’s “Must See” List, soulful stories stood tall and our cosmic county welcomed comedy, drama and family-friendly features providing a bit of sinful (but law-abiding) entertainment.
Which touching tale made you want to stay a bit longer in your local movie theater this weekend?
