Following the Stars

Following last weekend’s star-worthy debut, will Solo: A Star Wars Story remain the one and only champion at the box office? Can Deadpool 2 climb his way back to the top, ungracious guy he is? Might Avengers: Infinity War graciously end that seemingly-unending battle? How much longer can that war continue? Have we gotten to the final chapter comprising the Book Club? What about the Life of the Party? How much longer will we be celebrating her? Might we find ourselves Adrift among all these options? Does young-love-dealing-with-a-natural disaster have a chance? Of course, a visit to a theme park might just send moviegoers in a different, daring direction courtesy of Action Point.
With the (movie) stars as our ultimate guide, what imaginative direction will you be heading in this weekend?

The Star of the Party

“It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves.” William Shakespeare
As only true cinematic destiny would have it, Solo: A Star Wars Story grabbed hold of the top spot at the domestic box office, finding the most profitable fate among the stars. Always a star, last week’s champion, Deadpool 2 took a non-chivalrous step down, telling off the aforementioned stars along the way. Avengers: Infinity War was still telling an endless tale, which, of course, sat just right with the ladies comprising the story-filled Book Club. The Life of the Party, meanwhile, was still having a great time among those celestial beings.
During this long, holiday weekend, when summer unofficially started, how many (movie) stars did you count? Did you “marvel” at all that star power while finding the inappropriate hero within, who, by the way, loves to party AND read books?
How much movie love did you pack into your three-day weekend?

Estimated Domestic Box Office Results:
1. Solo: A Star Wars Story $83.3 million.
2. Deadpool 2 $42.7 million.
3. Avengers: Infinity War $16.5 million.
4. Book Club $9.5 million.
5. Life of the Party $5.1 million.

Solo Gets Ready to Soar

“For my part I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream.” Vincent Van Gogh
What will you be dreaming about this long holiday weekend? Sun and surf with a few stars mixed in between of the celestial and cinematic kind? Will Solo: A Star Wars Story be the story Hollywood dreams are made of? That’s a pretty safe bet, with Deadpool 2 inappropriate to take that inevitable step down without a fight. Of course, the guys doing battle in Avengers: Infinity War are always ready for a fight. How much fight is left in them? Does the Life of the Party have any soul left for celebrating or do the partygoers prefer the much calmer Book Club, whose members are always looking for new recruits?
Among so many stars, who will be Breaking In to that top box-office spot this weekend? Only the Force knows…

Deadpool Decimates

Merc with a Mouth trash talked the most people in movieland this weekend, taking Deadpool 2 the liveliest box office locale. Avengers: Infinity War was still fighting an impressively endless battle despite the new “hero” in town. Proving heroes come in all shapes and sizes, the women hosting the Book Club received a warm welcome from its members. The Life of the Party brought a bit of comedic soul to the celebration. Finally, among all these thrills, even more edge-of-your-seat action was Breaking In to our local movie theaters.
A controversial hero broke in (in a really, really big way) to our movie lives, creating a war among his worthy (and less foul) competition. Each of our stories created its own “page turner” as the most entertaining parties played on…
As we look forward to next weekend’s starry forecast, which of our star-worthy tales created the most entertainment for you this weekend?

Estimated Domestic Box Office Results:
1. Deadpool 2 $125 million.
2. Avengers: Infinity War $28.7 million.
3. Book Club $12.5 million.
4. Life of the Party $7.7 million.
5. Breaking In $6.5 million.

Movie Life and Dead

Who will be the Life of the Party this weekend? Will it be the Avengers: Infinity War, who, let’s face it, are ready to take on anyone, sparring lot they are? Are they ready for the competition headed their warring way, threatening to break up that party while Breaking In to the Big Box-Office Times? First up is everyone’s favorite foul-mouthed friend, Deadpool 2, who’s promising to be twice as inappropriately entertaining. For the intellectual crowd, a Book Club promises one riveting “read.” Show Dogs, finally, will be around to offer a bit of unconditional love to all of our characters.
Working under these conditions, who can we expect to get thrown Overboard this weekend in our far-from A Quiet Place movie community?

Marvel Welcomes the Party Crasher

“Every second is of infinite value.” Johann von Goethe
It was one giant party within our vast movie world this weekend, but Most Valuable Player, i.e. party crasher went to our favorite warring team comprising Avengers: Infinity War, who remained the reigning champion at the domestic box office. The Life of the Party, however, was the Queen of the Comedic Ball, Breaking In(to) the action ahead of an edge-of-your-seat thriller. Audiences were still going Overboard for a sequel, offering a relaxing prelude to a visit to A Quiet Place, which, apparently, horror seekers were far from being over (or silent about).
Overwhelmed by all the choices this weekend at the movies offered? Action, adventure, Avengers and oddly awesome party crashers of all kinds created an anything-but-quiet storm within movie theaters coast to coast.
Which of our finest films did you choose?

Estimated Domestic Box Office Results:
1. Avengers: Infinity War $61.8 million.
2. Life of the Party $18.5 million.
3.Breaking In $16.5 million.
4. Overboard $10.1 million.
5. A Quiet Place $6.4 million.

An Inspiring Movie Weekend

With Avengers: Infinity War taking no prisoners at the box office for the second weekend in a row, what will this weekend bring in our infinite storybook world? Will there be a new Life of the Party? Will a Bad Samaritan make for the best party crasher sending the coolest characters Overboard? How much longer will a Rampage be blowing through our movie universe, making A Quiet Place even more calamitous? Of course, the Beast Within might create its own chaos within movie theaters, seeking Revenge against cheating husbands (among others) while shedding light on the Dark Crimes currently being committed (including, but not limited to uninspiring stories).
Fortunately, I (and the average moviegoer) Feel Pretty confident that whichever film we choose, we’re guaranteed an inspired time.
Who will be Breaking In to our sure-to-inspire movie weekend?
