After getting activist-type advice courtesy of “Selma,” will the “American Sniper” get a new lease on life at the movies? Will the so-called Legend be “Taken (3)” on a hero’s journey, venturing courageously “Into the Woods” for an inventive respite from life’s harsh realities? Surely the fragile yet “Unbroken” trail he travels will offer him perspective on his dramatic existence. Luckily, he can count on dependable “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” standing watch as he recoups. Lovable “Paddington,” meanwhile, is watching the world go by on an imaginative, albeit more family-friendly adventure of his own, dodging the taxidermist much like the Navy seal dodged bullets. Last but not least, there’s Kevin Hart’s “The Wedding Ringer,” who hopes to dodge all that drama on his way to becoming the funniest box-office guest.
Expect make-believe to collide with reality this weekend on the Big Screen, where only the strongest (i.e. most entertaining) will survive.
Will our new-in-town characters be dodging their competition on the way to ultimate box office survival (or at the very least make the best of dysfunctional friends?)
Check back on Sunday to find out!
