BEAUTY AND THE BEAST remained the most beautiful beast to beat at the box office this weekend, proving once again that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. Sizing up the rest of the competition while inspiring a bit of movie-style nostalgia, kid-friendly POWER RANGERS showed they still have what it takes to kick some cinematic butt. LIFE on the planet Mars, meanwhile, offered a glimpse of repulsion (and Ryan Reynolds) while equally-repulsive SKULL: KONG ISLAND was still one gigantic place to visit.
Rounding out the star-studded Top Five, LOGAN loyalists were still being heard.
Disney remained divine, a blast from the imaginative past proved powerful, Reynolds was still Hollywood royalty and an island getaway was anything but idyllic while a future-set hideaway couldn’t keep audiences away.
