The Cinematic Road to Success

Will THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS determine the less-successful destiny of our well-traveled characters this weekend? Might THE BOSS BABY get fired up, seeking a destined-to-be UNFORGETTABLE revenge against, well, anyone who gets in his bossy way? Perhaps the way more mature BEAUTY AND THE BEAST will set a better example for our temperamental stars as they continue to add beauty to the scenery.
Maybe that path to cinematic praise is paved in adorable pandas and their pals, as those BORN IN CHINA demonstrate that beauty is most certainly found worldwide. Of course, those GOING IN STYLE are sure to find life in our movie universe both stylish and timeless.
Always timeless, humanity finds itself within THE CIRCLE of some pretty nefarious people. In what box-office direction will that lead?
Playing the lead, a suddenly-single man could teach classes on HOW TO BE A LATIN LOVER but does he have what it takes to win over audience members, both male and female?
Expect magic to come into play this weekend with THE SLEIGHT of a cinematic hand. Will it work its magic on moviegoers?
Can THE PROMISE of a brighter, even more beautiful movie day entice moviegoers into a darkened movie theater?
Most importantly, who will “own the road” this weekend in the wonderful world of movies?

Furious Once Again Owns the Cinematic Road

THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS remained destined to own the cinematic road, at least for the time being, as the speed chasers came in first once again at the domestic box office. THE BOSS BABY kept giving the littlest moviegoers orders while BEAUTY AND THE BEAST continued to represent Disney quite nicely. Those BORN IN CHINA as well as our scenic cities nationwide discovered the most adorable beings, leaving moviegoers GOING IN STYLE to our never-out-of-style movie theaters.
A furious franchise showed little sign of slowing down while animation remained high on everyone’s movie wish list. A trip to China was one sweet treat while our most stylish characters all careened on big screens coast to coast.
Which of our sweetly satisfying stories was worth a trip to the local movie theater for you this weekend?

A Fresh Take on a Fury-Filled Weekend

As audiences, young and old, get ready to take a giant, animated LEAP! into movie theaters this weekend, will THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS be to maintain the all-important driver’s seat? Driving along quite nicely, THE BOSS BABY is sure to put up a G-rated fight to the box-office finish line. Will he be passing BEAUTY AND THE BEAST along the way? Will the moviegoers adrift as to what story to see find SMURFS: THE LOST VILLAGE adding the most “color” to their movie experience?
Perhaps THE PROMISE of love and an UNFORGETTABLE movie experience for those BORN IN CHINA, as well as stateside, will satisfy those not interested in fresh faces and a furious franchise.
Fortunately, a trip to the neighborhood movie theater promises to satisfy even the pickiest moviegoer!
Will you be GOING IN STYLE to a fashionable movie theater near you this weekend?

A Furious Fate

THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS, to the surprise of absolutely no one, was naturally to speed past its slower-paced competition, in a REALLY big way, and take hold of the top spot at the domestic box office. Pushy THE BOSS BABY, accustomed to being behind the wheel, did not appreciate being relegated to the back seat. Way more diplomatic, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST found their box-office locale still scenic. The scenery was slightly less attractive for SMURFS: (hanging out in) THE LOST VILLAGE and feeling happily at home. GOING IN STYLE was apparently still an entertaining way to go for moviegoers not interested in car chases or colorful characters.
The cinematic road belonged to one furious franchise, a baby was boss to the G-rated gang, Disney remained everyone’s darling, a blue-toned village was once again a fun place to get lost in and senior citizens still had their say.
Which of our telling tales had the most to say to you this weekend?

A Fateful Fury-Filled Weekend

THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS is soon to be determined at movie theaters nationwide. What will be their destiny? Can we expect our future, a.k.a. upcoming weekend, to be filled with car chasers as opposed to character builders?
This will certainly send fury into the heart of temperamental The BOSS BABY, who will not take kindly to a demotion. Also facing a Disney-size downgrade, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST are sure to feel a flurry of emotions as their time in the spotlight starts to fade (destined to shine again). Then there’s the SMURFS: (hanging out in) THE LOST VILLAGE. Will they get lost in the cinematic shuffle?
Lagging even farther behind, will the GHOST IN THE SHELL be filled with spirit as opposed to speed? Is GOING IN STYLE strictly for the fashionable older crowd?
Fortunately, SANDY WEXLER, who looks strangely like Adam Sandler, promises to do his part to bring the turbo-charged talent.
A fateful, fast-paced weekend will soon be upon us!
Which of our fast and friendly tales will you be speeding towards?

A Baby Once Again Beats Them All

THE BOSS BABY was still giving orders while “killing” the rest of his colorful competition. BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, meanwhile, chose to kill with Disney kindness. Females took the lead within SMURFS: THE LOST VILLAGE, where they found the (movie) natives friendly. Friends were GOING IN STYLE and proving that cinematic entertainment is ageless and always in fashion. Rounding out the Top Five, a “fashionable” GHOST IN THE SHELL filled movie theater seats with her soulful ways.
A briefcase-carrying baby was still bossing everyone else around, a beast remained a box-office beauty, our favorite blue animated beings found a happy movie home, an older crowd was stylin,’ and a cyber soldier was still around to save them all!
