Audiences took that Star Trek Beyond their expectations, arriving at the starriest place in the movie galaxy. Winding through the mean streets of New York, The Secret Life of Pets continued to offer their version of the E True Hollywood story on our favorite, close-mouthed friends. Those friendly Ghostbusters were clearing a safe but entertaining path for moviegoers, free from shady beings but sadly, not from slimy encounters. With the Lights Out, and the air conditioners at full blast, audiences were encountering dark horror. Within their own light but icy universe, Ice Age: Collision Course collided well with all of their heavy-duty animated competition, taking a scenic, circuitous route to their box-office location.
Darkness and light blended brilliantly this weekend at the movies as the stars aligned, sending moviegoers on a colorful, nostalgic journey (thank you, sequels).
