An Incredible Weekend

The Incredibles 2 stayed true to their title, finding one incredible box-office locale. The competition was tough among the rest of the less-credible, but a spirited game of Tag proved profitable. The ladies of Ocean’s 8, however,being the devious divas they are, managed to steal their thunder. Solo: A Star Wars Story discovered it really is lonely (and not nearly as profitable) at the (sort of) top while Deadpool 2 was still alive (just not as well as the weeks roll by).
Animation had one amazing opening, the ladies walked away a winner, proving crime Does pay, heroes, however were still alive and kicking and the stars remained as more than one entertaining game was played out on the Big Screen.
Which of our lively tales kicked your weekend into high gear?

Estimated Domestic Box Office Results:
1.The Incredibles 2 $180 million.
2. Ocean’s 8 $19.5 million.
3. Tag $14.6 million.
4.Solo: A Star Wars Story $9.3 million.
5. Deadpool 2 $8.6 million.

Looking Toward an Incredible Weekend

The Incredibles 2 are ready to take over movie theaters, saving the youngest of moviegoers with their own brand of (animated) heroic skills. Despite his smugness, Deadpool 2 is starting to feel the effects of so many heroes entering the landscape. Will he soon by DOA? Might we find a healing power within Hotel Armetis? Will our Hereditary prove that family really isn’t worth the mind-numbing fear they inspire, or will audiences be too afraid to deny them their cinematic inheritance? Despite their legacy, might Solo: A Star Wars Story be nearing The End? What about the folks comprising Avengers: Infinity War? Do they have a fighting chance among so many Blockbuster wannabes?
Wanting way more than his share, new-in-town Gotti is looking forward to sharing scandalous tips with the ladies of Ocean’s 8 (who could teach their own class on criminal activity). Who will pull off the biggest heist this weekend?
Have all these options left you feeling Adrift, sending you wandering, naturally, to the closest movie theater?
Along that aimless yet entertaining journey, can peace stand a (profitable) chance in this Hollywood-fueled game of Tag (our peacekeeping incredible friends, notwithstanding?)
It’s a Race (3) to the movie finish line!

Ocean Sails to the Top

Ocean’s 8, devious bunch they are, stole the show this weekend, pulling off one great cinematic heist. In our starry solar system, the cast of Solo: A Star Wars Story still resided. Living on his own R-rated terms, Deadpool 2 was seeing his own peculiar stars. Horror met with Hereditary, making most of us grateful for the far-less-horrifying families we’ve got while our friends the Avengers: Infinity War were starting to feel like family as they held their place among so many familial stars.
It was all relative this weekend at the movies, with the ladies sailing successfully to the top. We learned Marvel heroes never really die and families can be fatal as the battle between those celestial beings played on…

Estimated Domestic Box Office Results:
1. Ocean’s 8 $41.5 million.
2. Solo: A Star Wars Story $15.2 million.
3. Deadpool 2 $13.7 million.
4. Hereditary $13 million.
5. Avengers: Infinity War $6.8 million.

Oceans on the Way

Will the stars continue to lead us toward the summer of 2018, courtesy of Solo: A Star Wars Story or will moviegoers be sent Adrift among so many choices? Deadpool 2, naturally, is planning on taking everything he can get, and then some, possibly provoking the Avengers (into the never-ending) Infinity War. Will that battle ever end? Of course, some may prefer a good story in place of a bloody battle, which our female-driven Book Club would be more than happy to provide.
Moving on, but still in a female-centric area, the cast of Ocean’s 8 is hoping to sail past all of them this weekend. Will they be sailing straight to the top of the box office or will audiences prefer fear to females? The ladies probably won’t take it too personally if they do, because, although hardly family-friendly, horror lovers may find it’s all Hereditary this weekend, as they bring their favorite loved ones to the familial fest.

A Starry Second Act

Solo: A Star Wars Story remained the starriest story in our movie planet this weekend, graciously shining a light on the rest of the competition. Deadpool 2 was revived while young love was sent Adrift, as the latest cinematic hurricane drifted our way ahead of Avenger: Infinity War, who continued to battle it out with the best of them. The members of the coolest Book Club found entertainment among the movie pages.
As we drift closer to summer, our characters have never shone brighter. The stars were well represented, a Marvel hero fought the war within us all as he debated witnessing the wonders of a natural disaster versus the benefits of a good book. Luckily, there was time this weekend for the best stories!
Which of those “wonder” tales made for the best weekend for you?

Estimated Domestic Box Office Results:
1. Solo: A Star Wars Story $29.3 million.
2. Deadpool 2 $23.3 million.
3. Adrift $11.5 million.
4. Avengers: Infinity War $10.4 million.
5. Book Club $6.8 million.
