Wonder Who’s Summer’s Next Movie Star?

A Wonder of a weekend is upon us, as legendary WONDER WOMAN is soon to grace us with her infamous presence. Hoping to steal a bit of her thunder (but not her wardrobe) CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS: (reveals a little TOO much in his) FIRST EPIC MOVIE. Will his entrance into the superhero universe be the ultimate animation revelation? Not if the GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY: VOL 2 gang can help it. How long will they be able to maintain their significant superhero space in our movie world?
Then there’s the PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES, who, let’s face it, are a bit more hellish than heroic. What tale will they NOT be telling this weekend?
Sailing on slightly different shores, the pretty BAYWATCH people are working overtime on their tans as well as their time in the spotlight. Will they be sinking outside the Box Office Five this weekend?
Hardly pretty, the ALIEN: COVENENT has experienced some seriously rough seas. Might they be docking anytime soon?
With so many heroes and hell raisers on the cinematic scene, who will save our movie weekend?

A Memorable Movie Weekend

PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES certainly had A LOT to say to audiences this memorable holiday weekend as they went cruising through the cinematic seas, ultimately docking at the top spot at the domestic box office. GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY: VOL 2 let their colorful guard down a bit for the newcomers while the BAYWATCH beauties kept busy fighting crime and tan lines. Fighting on the extraterrestrial front, ALIEN: (sailed the) COVENANT into a less-starry box-office locale. On more familial lands, young love was EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING to romance-seeking moviegoers
Our blockbuster beauties brought the heat from the beaches to the big-screen battle lines, sailing along pirate-filled seas, meeting the fittest characters, extraterrestrial beings and heroes in fine form, leaving moviegoers time to find Reel romance during their three-day weekend.

Bathing Beauties Crash the Caribbean

With the unofficial start to summer officially here, will audiences become a part of the BAYWATCH team, sans obligatory bathing suit? Will a lively excursion courtesy of the PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN (reveal) DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES (being strictly men of action?) What exactly do those adventure seeking GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY: VOL 2 still have left to tell? Might the ALIEN: COVENANT be the odd one out or the revealer of the secret to success?
On that rocky adolescent road, is love EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING or nothing at all to the hard hearted among us? Why must life be so hard for middle school boys, as evidenced in the DIARY OF A WIMPY KID: (forever on) THE LONG HAUL to adulthood or high school, whichever comes first.
That infamous mother daughter duo on their own long journey, meanwhile, have SNATCHED up their share of hard times. Will their time in the spotlight be seized by their worthy competition?

The pre-summer stars have aligned! Which of our worthy stories will seize your attention this long holiday weekend?

The Aliens Take Down the Guards

It was smooth sailing for the latest ALIEN: (aboard the) COVENANT, at least from an audience perspective, as our favorite foreign beings invaded our movie universe, claiming the top spot at the domestic box office. Former champ GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY: VOL 2, meanwhile, clobbered the rest of the earthly competition. Switching storytelling gears, young love meant EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING to moviegoers looking for romantic angst as opposed to alienation.
Comedy seekers got SNATCHED up once more by girl power as audiences discovered within the pages of the DIARY OF A WIMPY KID: THE LONG HAUL to the local movie theater was filled with a slew of cinematic pot holes, making that endless journey entertaining.
It was a powerfully entertaining weekend at the movies, with an adapted comic book still killin’ it, aliens sailing aboard one successfully freaky ship, young tortured love in all its dramatic glory, a torturous family road trip and one starry island adventure. Happily, all of our characters felt right at home on the Big Screen.
Which of our adventure seekers made you feel at home on this mighty movie weekend?

Aliens Invade the Movie Landscape

With crusaders, comediennes and car chasers cruising through our movie theaters last weekend, what will our cinematic landscape look like THIS weekend? Well, pretty much the same, with the exception, of course, of a few more foreign beings mixing it up in our imaginative landscape, as ALIEN: COVENANT hopes to sail off into one successful storytelling horizon. Here on earth, they’ll have to contend with champion GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY: VOL 2, who refuse to go gently into that good night (or their next otherworldly chapter). Striving (fruitlessly) not to be outdone, KING ARTHUR: (and his) LEGEND OF THE SWORD plan on telling the tallest tale, squashing THE BOSS BABY (who, naturally, has a much earlier bedtime). With no curfew to adhere to, or common sense, our favorite mother/daughter duo plan on staying up all night, still getting SNATCHED up by their own success while seizing every larger-than-life opportunity.
After seizing every movie opportunity (and then some) on their latest go around, perhaps THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS is to follow the road out of town as they gear up for their next adventurous road trip, knowing that EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING on that road to fame is relative.
Looking for a more family-friendly adventure, will audiences peeking through the DIARY OF A WIMPY KID: (find) THE LONG HAUL worth the short trip to their local movie theater?
Which of our worthwhile tales will have you hitting the movie trail this weekend?

The Guardians Still Got It

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY: VOL 2 showed no signs of letting their guard down, once again claiming the top spot at the domestic box office. Moviegoers looking for some laughs were SNATCHED up by girl power and fun for everyone. Everyone in the legendary part of town witnessed KING ARTHUR: LEGEND OF THE SWORD come out swinging, claiming his birthright and his place in the Movie Kingdom. THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS was to take a few steps down while still speeding around the globe, passing a collection of colorful characters along the way. Traveling at his own aggressive speed, THE BOSS BABY nicely, and naturally colorfully, rounded out the Top Five.
Legends were made this weekend in our Marvel-driven, mom-loving movie galaxy, where the fastest characters were found and the cinematic fate of moviegoers was filled with action, adventure and a touch of animation for variety with everyone celebrating Mother’s Day in high movie style.

Which of our legend-in-the-making tales was worth celebrating for you this weekend?

Estimated Domestic Box Office Results:
1. Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 2 $63 million.
2. Snatched $17.5 million.
3. King Arthur: Legend of the Sword $14.7 million.
4. The Fate of the Furious $5.3 million.
5. The Boss Baby $4.6 million.

Who Will Rule the Movie Galaxy?

Will GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL 2 be able to guard their movie turf this weekend or will audiences be SNATCHED up by a bit of action AND comedy, in its first Volume, occurring on solid, albeit starry ground? Might the latest chapter comprising THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS have our speediest characters pulling over on the cinematic road for the endless line of summer blockbusters spotted in their rearview mirror?
Perhaps KING ARTHUR: LEGEND OF THE SWORD has what it takes to wipe out those less celebrated cinematic characters and claim the box-office throne.
Among all that royal comedy, calculated calamity and legendary beings, how much longer will audiences be interested in the intricacies of HOW TO BE A LATIN LOVER? Has the charm faded from the eternal saga surrounding BEAUTY AND THE BEAST? What about THE BOSS BABY? Are his days finally numbered?
When the numbers are totaled, who will be the ultimate victor?
