An Angel Wins the Battle


Alita: Battle Angel found her identity and the biggest audience this weekend at the movies, coming in first at the domestic box office. The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part played the part of littlest crowd pleaser. Isn’t it Romantic? spoke to the grudging romantics among us, What Men Want left audiences wanting for more while the horror lovers among us, who found delight in dying (cinematically speaking) were wished a Happy Death Day 2U.
The young and the young at heart were happily represented this weekend at the movies, where men (and women) wanted for nothing more than action angels, colorful characters, romantic comedies and happily dramatic deaths, making for the sweetest winter weekend at the movies.
What part of your weekend was the sweetest?

Estimated Domestic Box Office Results:
1. Alita: Battle Angel $27.8 million.
2. The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part $21.2 million.
3. Isn’t it Romantic? $14.2 million.
4. What Men Want $10.9 million.
5.Happy Death Day 2U $9.8 million.


Happy Days Compete with Romantic Nights


Will champion The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part enjoy a second round at number one this weekend at the movies, once again breaking apart the once-unbreakable Glass (among others?) What is The Upside to each of their movie parts?
Will audiences be identifying with Alita: Battle Angel or will they prefer What Men Want? Might their hearts’ desires include a thought-provoking movie break meant to be enjoyed with the One they Love? Perhaps they’ll be thinking, Isn’t it Romantic? to let the ladies decide on the movie choice this weekend as opposed to Fighting With My Family (and theirs) over so many cinematic selections.
Will a Cold Pursuit be left out in the cinematic cold this weekend, where The Prodigy is creeping around and the chilling choices include A Happy Death Day 2U lovers who prefer horror to hearts (despite what the calendar classifies as the sweetest of holidays?)
How sweet will this weekend at the movies be?

Lego Takes Apart the Competition


The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part brought the most fans together this weekend at the movies, coming in first at the domestic box office. What Men Want, apparently, was good conversation and a great movie, A Cold Pursuit resulted in a cool reception,  The Upside had no downside despite its lower box-office locale and Glass found manifold profit in multiple personalities.
It was an educational of sorts weekend at the movies, with each part, from the heroic to the hilarious, fitting perfectly together.
What brought your weekend perfectly together?

Estimated Domestic Box Office Results:
1.The Lego Movie: Part Two $34.4 million.
2. What Men Want $19 million.
3. Cold Pursuit $10.8 million.
4. The Upside $7.2 million.
5. Glass $6.4 million.

Dissecting the Cold and Colorful Cinematic Parts



With so much soon to invade our movie universe, how much longer will Glass remain box-office unbreakable? Will The Upside be taking several steps down? Is there anyone left for Aquaman to save? Can The Kid Who Would Be King who clearly has been struggling unsuccessfully with the weight of that crown, find a better place in Hollywood royalty or will The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part be taking apart his world? Is Spider-Man: (ready to travel) Into the Spider-Verse indefinitely (or until the next friendly, neighborhood invasion?)
Does What Men Want include a weekend at the movies worth talking about?
Will Miss Bala’s power trip involve a total movie takeover? Can A Cold Pursuit provide the hottest entertainment?
Perhaps The Prodigy, despite his odd supernatural ways, or maybe because of his supernatural ways, will take the most terrifying control, sending horror lovers on one disturbing ride. Fortunately, They (who) Shall Not Grow Old are ready to battle his youthful “indiscretions.”
Are you ready for a timeless trip to your local movie theater?

Glass Maintained a Clear Edge Over the Competition


Glass still had audiences seeing right through its many facades (and liking what they saw). The Upside contained no downside for its fans. Miss Bala took on the criminal world, clearly not kidding around, Aquaman remained the hero to beat, while Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse had its groupies well-versed in all that goes into making a neighborhood hero.
Willis used his “supernatural” abilities to secure our movie world this weekend at the movies, where heroes came in the most interesting disguises.
Which of our heroes saved your weekend?

Estimated Domestic Box Office Results:
1.Glass $9.5 million.
2. The Upside $8.9 million.
3. Miss Bala $6.7 million.
4. Aquaman $4.8 million.
5. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse $4.4 million.
