A Hot Halloween

Movie theaters were hot with Halloween horrors this weekend as Tyler Perry continued shouting from the top box-office spot, Boo! (making) A Madea Halloween both freaky and funny. The Inferno brought the heat to movie theaters while that still- hot Jack Reacher: (ironically declared) Never Go Back yet came back for another week of action and adventure. The Accountant kept playing by his own set of numbers, resulting in still-impressive box-office totals as Ouija: Origin of Evil continued playing one evil but profitable game.
As ghouls and goblins of the wild, Hollywood variety filled our darkened movie theaters this weekend, Hanks proved he’s still a hot commodity, Tyler continued to tell tall tales, Cruise was still reaching toward the stars and Affleck remained a star we could count on!

A Hot Halloween is on the Horizon

Ready for The Inferno profitably predicted for this weekend, sure to set off cinematic sparks coast to coast? Would you prefer to cool off courtesy of cool-under-pressure The Accountant, who’s clearly counting on your movie presence to stay in the game? Of course, you could check out the always-cool Jack Reacher: (still declaring) Never Go Back (hoping a move forward will bring him even more fame and freedom).
Moving right along, we find infamous The Girl on the Train, who seems unwilling to hop off her form of cinematic transportation anytime soon (do we really want to push her off?)
Speaking of unsettling (and weren’t we?), perhaps you’d prefer a stimulating round of Ouija: (which promises to reveal the) Origin of Evil to anyone brave enough to make it to the final credits. Also not for the faint-hearted, Boo! A Madea Halloween promises to get you in the scary spirit, offering a haunting “experience” that only talented Tyler Perry can deliver.
With poltergeist and paranormal activities filling movie theaters, and an amnesiac who looks strangely like Tom Hanks on the loose, Hollywood is one hot place to visit!
Can you take the Hanks/Halloween-inspired heat?

Livening up the Halloween Scene

The stage was set this weekend, as Halloween slowly crept into movie theaters, shouting Boo! (setting off) A Madea Halloween that gave scare lovers a glimpse of Tyler Perry in his spookiest form. Lethal as opposed to loopy Jack Reacher: (declared) Never Go Back as he successfully moved onward and upward, coasting past the rest of the Tom Cruise-less competition. The fright lovers who weren’t shouting Boo! were occupied trying to figure out Ouija: Origin of Evil, which got to the wicked root of all those pre-Halloween horrors currently invading our neighborhoods and our cinematic landscape while The Accountant continued to count his many admirers (and his money).
Profitably living within her own private horror show, The Girl on the Train was still on the ride of her mysterious life, leaving audiences contemplating her next startling move.
Horror and all things that go bump in the night moved to the head of the movie line, Cruise and Affleck went heroically head-to-head, a train was still a thrilling form of transportation and Perry was funny and frightening.

Reaching Toward a Bootiful Halloween

As we inch closer to Halloween, we find our cast of characters standing entertainingly on guard (and greedily protecting their turf). First to shout Boo! A Madea Halloween is sure to set a strange but spooky stage (thank you, Tyler Perry). Naturally, Ouija: Origin of Evil plans on contributing to that all-important creep factor. Amidst all this creepiness, Jack Reacher: (bravely declares) Never Go Back to his fellow stars, presuming they prefer Cruise to creepy.
The Accountant is always ready for some nefarious action, as is adventuresome Max (and his alien pal) Steele, who combined make for one odd superhero. Luckily, they can count on those super-powered kids residing within Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children to support their unique cause. The Girl on the Train seems to be successfully mastering the art of odd, as she travels to parts unknown, past the Deepwater Horizon, where the stars shine the brightest. Once she gets there, she’s sure to run into Kevin Hart: (still asking) What Now? to his legion of fans.
Naturally, we’ll all be Keeping Up with the Joneses, assuming their fake lives are way more intriguing than our real ones.

The possibilities are endless this starry weekend, as our Hollywood-style Ouija board is predicting humor and horror, lots of tension, Tyler and Tom all taking one crazy train ride, with peculiar children and all-around powerful entertainment!
Which of our entertaining gems is worth following that Hollywood horizon toward this weekend?

Movies by the Numbers

The numbers were added up this weekend, with The Accountant methodically coming in ahead of his less-intelligent (and devious) competition. Inside a less-devious movie theater, fans were asking their favorite comedian Kevin Hart: What Now? following his film’s success. Success was still riding the rails with The Girl on the Train, who was getting more puzzled by the minute. As those strange minutes passed by, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children continued to attract a unique audience. Deep within the Deepwater Horizon, moviegoers discovered a slick but stimulating story being told.

Far beyond that inspiring horizon, an eccentric accountant crossed paths with odd children, while a comedian and a confused girl shared common ground.

  5. Deepwater Horizon $6.4 million.

Counting all the Movie Ways

Are you ready for an entertaining trip this weekend culminating at your local movie theater, where The Girl on the Train promises mystery and strange happenings? If strange is your thing, perhaps you can visit Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, who clearly have perfected the art of odd. Teenager and alien friend Max Steele are hoping to grab everyone’s attention in their own powerful, as opposed to peculiar, way. Possessing a different kind of power is also new-in-town The Accountant, who is busy making money magic, mischievously counting all the ways to fame and fortune. Of course, you may instead be counting on Kevin Hart (answering the question) What Now? when it comes to the all-important movie selection.

Maybe it’s new beginnings that interest you the most. Fortuitously, The Birth of a Nation coincides with a visit from our favorite Storks, who introduce future moviegoers to the big-screen scene.

Finally, the scene is starting to dim a bit for those stuck in that bleak Deepwater Horizon, who are valiantly still struggling to clean up their act (and cruise past their competition).

Where will a cruise through our deepest tales take you this weekend?

The Girl on the Train Travels on all the Right Tracks

Although Hurricane Matthew put a damper on the cinematic festivities for some this weekend, movie lovers still showed up to support their favorite films. The Girl on the Train found her disturbing way to the best spot at the box-office, knocking the rest of the competition off of her mysterious tracks. Mystery surrounded Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, which was still a strange but surreal place to visit. Dirty business surrounded the Deepwater Horizon as its visitors looked toward brighter (oil-contained) days. As the weeks dwindled on, The Magnificent Seven inevitably dropped in the number of moviegoers but remained magnificent nonetheless. Dealing with their own magnificence, the Storks continued to deliver to a happy, G-rated-loving crowd.

Crowds caught a glimpse of a disturbed girl, peculiar children, dirty horizons and colorful packages, as magnificent films caught everybody’s attention.
