“For Christmas, one word brings the magic to life: BELIEVE.” Chrismtasquotes.com
Aquaman found the most believers this weekend at the movies, soaring above his less-seaworthy competition and coming in first at the domestic box office. Fifty-four years after her debut, Mary Poppins Returns to the delight of a whole new generation. Bumblebee had a transforming effect on his audience. Web slinging down a few box-office notches but still enjoying the view, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse traveled to the most festive places. Finally, The Mule contained more of a criminal as opposed to Christmas message, courtesy of Clint Eastwood.
The crowds arrived, and signs of the season abounded in movie theaters this weekend, where technicolor lights illuminated the brightest time of year. Audiences took a much-needed holiday break to enjoy the cinematic sights, where undersea action competed beautifully with action and animation, while a heartwarming return was welcomed by the young and the young-at-heart.
