During this All-American holiday break, the summer stars were shining, offering one spectacular show filled with old friends and new frenemies. In the old friends’ department, the DESPICABLE ME 3 gang brought the most delight to moviegoers this long weekend, finding the top spot at the domestic box office way more appealing than appalling. Following behind, the BABY DRIVER commanded the attention of those who prefer their action behind the cinematic wheel. Speaking of the action oriented, TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT once more offered fast-paced entertainment, nobly paving the way for WONDER WOMAN, whose crown was beginning to slip a bit. Slipping into the Top Five, the CARS 3 cuties found a colorful place to park.
Our summer stars rested comfortably among the fireworks, setting off imaginative sparks coast to coast. Animation held a respectable place in our character-driven atmosphere, a drive was certainly compelling on firm, frenzy ground and a knight remained royalty. Will wonders ever cease?
