As con man turned tiny hero Ant-Man continued to protect moviegoers desperate to escape the heat (and his #1 box-office spot), those not-as-hot Pixels, hero to no one, ran a close second on their trip back in time (circa the 1980’s) to the classic arcade game era, while Earth endured the latest cinematic attack. The Minions remained committed to attacking the competition in service to their villain du jour while audiences traveling on the Trainwreck endured the ups and downs on the latest relationship rollercoaster. Relationship-challenged Southpaw put his best foot forward, triumphing over tragedy (thanks to the always-engaging Jake Gyllenhaal).
