Tim Burton’s Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children provided a surreal escape for children of all ages this weekend, taking up the biggest home at the box office. Deepwater Horizon dove deep, spilling into crowded movie theaters. Aging quite well, The Magnificent Seven continued to glow in their own magnificence while growing their western-loving fan base. Animation fans discovered our favorite Storks making the best deliveries, soaring above Sully, who although he was flying considerably lower, still had his heroic head in the clouds, basking in his lofty accomplishments.
The horizon was bright this weekend, ironically thanks to a based-on-a-true-story nasty oil spill and those oddly intriguing children. A western was still winning, a stork brought much delight, and by air was still a safe way to travel as happy audiences found the coolest home away from home.
