Although Ben-Hur was born for the big screen, his less-than-stellar opening weekend suggests he will soon be riding his chariot into the cinematic sunset. Will the prince be made a box-office pauper? Might the sun dare to set on the un-princely Suicide Squad, killing their dream of eternally obliterating their less-lethal competition? What about the hungry guests at that strange Sausage Party? Will they be satisfied with a meaty story but a meatless existence? Can those supermarket items make the ultimate break from their weighty opposition or will the War Dogs, badasses that they are, take the biggest bite out of the all-important movie database? With a terrifying heist taking place by another group of really bad guys, will moviegoers declare, Don’t Breathe for fear of missing a horrific moment?
In the mood for a bloody kind of battle? Hands of Stone promises one handy as opposed to horrifying event. Fighting a different kind of war, familial matters take center stage, offering Kubo and the Two Strings all they need to tie together one big happy family reunion.
Before any happy reunions can take place, the Mechanic: Resurrection takes a trip around the globe, sure to revitalize and repair what ails the average, action-seeking audience.
Which of our revitalizing tales will you be checking out this weekend?
