San Andreas Shakes up the Movies

Moviegoers were forgoing a  trip to the beach in favor of a natural disaster (and manmade box-office success) occurring along the shaky San Andreas this weekend, setting a Pitch Perfect 2 start the cinematic fun (and offering our girl group another reason to shake, rattle and roll). One person’s fun was another person’s fury, however, as that temperamental Mad Max: (remained stuck on) Fury Road but fortuitously far removed from the aforementioned massive earthquake. Although the fine folks living in the mystical Tomorrowland did not discover earth-shattering box-office results their first weekend in town, they were happily still in the movie game, offering their select audience a Disney adventure worth enjoying in the present tense as well as in the far-away land of tomorrow known as DVD release. Avengers: Age of Ultron was enjoying the present moment while aging quite well on that timeless big screen.

From the coast of California, the melodic stage, roads of rage and every storytelling page, our cast of characters delivered the coolest road trip the closest to home!

Aloha says Hello to San Andreas

Will audiences be saying a heartfelt Aloha to a Hawaii-bound Bradley Cooper this weekend, or will they be too absorbed in the natural disaster occurring along the San Andreas to care about lost loves (and lava formation?) Perhaps they’re still stuck in the phenomenon taking place in Tomorrowland, where magic and mystery abound. Prefer music to mayhem? Our favorite female singing troupe is singing at a Pitch Perfect 2 take us straight into a harmonious summer, where Mad Max: (is still driving down) Fury Road searching for a peaceful vacation spot to decompress. Despite his passion and bravery, he knows the entity lurking within Poltergeist will not offer him sanctuary from his never-ending fury. Luckily, the always-at-work Avengers: Age of Ultron is on the age-defying case, ready to protect the public from a creepy presence as well as your basic cinematic peril.

Why wait until tomorrow to check out a perilous tale or a perfectly serene story?  From the Aloha state to the city of San Andreas, you’ll find earthquakes and earth-shattering adventures, romance, road rage, and, of course, musical girls that rule!

Which movie will offer you an entertaining sanctuary this weekend?

Tomorrowland takes on the Pitch Perfect Present

The road leading to that imaginative land known as tomorrow was paved in mystery and magic, as the long holiday weekend inspired movie lovers to celebrate close to home, happy in a Disney-inspired Tomorrowland (with George Clooney as the most enchanting present-day hero). With a Pitch Perfect 2 honor the memorable occasion, audiences far and wide left movie theaters with a song in their hearts quickly muffled to a low hum upon crossing paths with the non-melodious Mad Max: (hanging on) Fury Road (where nary a sweet song was heard). Along that same high-octane driven path, the Avengers: Age of Ultron was aging well, content to be far from the Poltergeist entity currently invading the big screen.

The movie invasion is on, with tomorrow’s mysteries blending perfectly with today’s melodies, Mad Max and a manifestation of the evil sort. There’s no better time than the present to meet and greet our odd but awesome cast!

Box Office Estimates:

  1. Tomorrowland $41.7 million.
  2. Pitch Perfect 2 $38.5 million.
  3. Mad Max: Fury Road $32.1 million.

Tomorrow’s Movie Dream

“Dreams are today’s answers to tomorrow’s questions.” Edgar Cayce

While contemplating the questions posed in that fantasy-driven Tomorrowland (starring the fantasy-inspiring George Clooney), will moviegoers discover a reel dream come true? Will it keep them away from the nightmare occurring within the (2015 version) Poltergeist universe? If tomorrow never comes, how will those horrible forces overtaking the Avengers: (leave the) Age of Ultron for the age-defying future? Perhaps they can acquire tips from the Age of Adeline, who knows what it’s like to defy the aging process (and could teach a thing or two to those ladies in Hot Pursuit of an eternal youth). The eternally youthful Mad Max: (found fame on) Fury Road, where he’s currently traveling toward the imminent horizon (a.k.a. the yet-to-come sequel). Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 is concerned about his advancing age (and declining audience members).

Do our still-in-their-prime characters possess a Pitch Perfect 2 take them into the summer of 2015, where that synthetic big-screen scenery rivals an all-natural picturesque day?

Most importantly, within the land of movies, which of our timeless tales will result in the biggest dream?

That is the question…

The Perfect Movie Pitch

The crooners were killing it at the box office this weekend, resulting in a Pitch Perfect 2 start a tuneful, cinematic summer. Far-from-musical Mad Max: ( speeding down) Fury Road found the view quite serene and his attitude far less maddening as he profitable bypassed the Avengers: Age of Ultron, who after two weeks of barely aging at the top spot reluctantly traveled down to a less scenic locale. Audiences remained in Hot Pursuit of strong female characters as they continued to look to cool Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 keep the story trails safe for otherwise misguided moviegoers.

So many movie roads to choose from! There was the route leading to harmony and hot times, a path filled with fun and fury, and an action-packed track leading to Mad Max (and a mall cop).

Which movie direction did you choose in this weekend?

Estimated Box Office Totals:

  1. Pitch Perfect 2 $70.3 million.

A Fun, Fury-Filled Road Trip

Looking for the Pitch Perfect 2 start your weekend? Are you prepared to take a drive alongside Mad Max: (down) Fury Road with a serene song in your heart or does your true passion exist in the less harmonious time of the Avengers: Age of Ultron? Perhaps you might prefer The Age of Adeline, where time passes quickly without that nasty aging process.

In Hot Pursuit of timeless adventures, will comedy and cute girls win the hearts of moviegoers this weekend or is the view along the road our Furious 7 friends travel better?

While taking in the movie views this weekend, expect to discover music and mayhem, furious roads, and, of course, the friendliest people all fighting for your attention. Fortunately, you’ll find Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 still be in cinematic attendance, making the scenery safe.

Mom’s Movie Weekend

It was the mother of all movie weekends, as moms (and less-maternal beings) treated themselves to a scorching cinematic experience. Moms hung up on the hero type continued to be quite taken with Tony Stark and his Avengers: Age of Ultron, (as long as they weren’t required to give their actual ages) sending the vengeance seekers once again to that ultimate box-office locale. Girl power was in rare comedic form, following far behind in Hot Pursuit of those ageless avengers. Our Furious 7 friends were hot on their high heels, traveling the movie circuit at a most respectable speed (given the length of time they’ve been on the cinematic road). Farther down that storied block, The Age of Adeline was showing little sign of growing old as her beauty (and fan base) continued to gracefully increase during her long lifetime. The aging but oh-so-graceful Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 was keeping the cinema streets safe for moms and their movie-loving loved ones.

In the pursuit of action, ageless romance and adventures of the comedic kind, all of our characters were happily feeling the love this hot spring weekend.
