Moana surfed into town just in time for the biggest opening during a long holiday weekend (with our younger moviegoers clearly preferring sailing over school work). Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them found a thankful audience still waiting for them. Doctor Strange maintained a spot on everyone’s Must See list while Allied connected with World War II lovers (and Brad Pitt). Lastly, aliens celebrated the Arrival of the holiday season.
Brad blended beautifully with beasts and strangers made the best of friends while aliens flourished. Animation, however, scored the highest box-office marks, with a fabled island providing a backdrop sure to make every movie lover’s holiday wish list.
Which of our fantastic, fabled tales was a wish come true for you this holiday weekend?
