A romantic comedy crept up on the competition this weekend, as Crazy Rich Asians had one crazy successful opening weekend. Refusing to be totally conquered by non-killers, The Meg continued to scare off the rest of the competition courtesy of her colossal size. Audiences traveled a Mile 22 to catch Mark Wahlberg in action. Mission Impossible: Fallout was still feeling like a rising star despite its fallen box-office status. Alpha was stepping out, making the most of his Man’s Best (movie) Friend status.
The steps leading to our local movie theaters this weekend were paved in Blockbuster gold, with Tom playing the part of hero, Mark walking the most engaging miles and Meg being her megalomaniacal self. A canine came cruising into our hearts as one crazy family came crashing through our movie lives.
