Avengers Annihilate

Avengers: Endgame came to play in a really big, record-breaking way (while heroically “killing” the competition) this weekend, beginning blockbuster season while ending (at least for now) the latest universal threat. Captain Marvel somehow maintained a place in our overcrowded heroic sphere, The Curse of La Llorona was a horrifying “blessing” and a Breakthrough of the movie kind miraculous occurred once again, discovering its faithful followers. Finally, Shazam! remained a faithful hero, albeit a much lesser one, to what was left of the hero-seeking crowd.
Marvel knew how to end the party for its competitors this weekend, shining the brightest light only the biggest stars can radiate. Being total gentlemen (and ladies), they graciously shared cinematic space with their fellow protagonists and more than a few antagonists, who all agreed, time spent at the movies guaranteed the ultimate game of entertainment.

Avengers get Ready to Play

Avengers: Endgame will soon be in the cinematic house. Who will be left standing in the end? Will it be the hero lurking within Shazam!? What about Hellboy? How much longer will he remain earthbound? Will the Missing Link get lost in that cinematic shuffle? Can the Lady Under the Silver Lake ever find a successful place above water?
How much longer will audiences be paying homage to the folks taking up space at the Pet Sematary?
Might the seemingly Little among all of those stars rise to the occasion, experiencing a heaven-sent Breakthrough? Does The Curse of La Llorona have the power to jinx them all?

Most importantly, do any of our aforementioned stars have a shot at breaking through the Marvel action soon to be occurring in movie theaters coast to coast?
Stay tuned!

Easter’s Cinematic Delights

Successfully competing with the Easter Bunny in the Most Popular Category, The Curse of La Llorona offered its audience a horrifying treat, coming in first at the domestic box office. Shazam! remained well-received to the screaming hero worshipers among us, as a Breakthrough of the spiritual kind occurred just in time for a bit of reflection. Life was still sweet for Captain Marvel while a Little story offered moviegoers a big life lesson.

An Easter Breakthrough

We can expect a lot of hope (with a twist of horror) this upcoming holiday weekend, where the residents of Pet Sematary hope to rise among the liveliest characters. Hellboy will clearly have a problem with that, torn between the trauma of balancing between heaven and earth (and trying to make a bigger impact at the box office). The scared silly, earthbound among us, meanwhile, are hoping the movie version Us won’t cause the actual us double the nightmares. Will The Curse of La Llorona cure our fears (or multiply them even more?) Can the missing Lady Under the Silver Lake rise above the rest of them with her spellbinding mystery?
The Missing Link, while not particularly mysterious, promises to connect those cinematic dots once again in an effort to find their fans. Fan to all, Captain Marvel is still around kicking butt. Will she be getting kicked to the curb anytime soon? Might Dumbo be coming down for a landing in time for the Easter Bunny’s show-stopping arrival?
Will the Little among us find bigger box-office results this weekend? How much longer will the hero worshipers be giving a shout out to Shazam!?
Finally, on our faithful, cinematic journey, what movie will create the biggest Breakthrough this weekend?

Shazam! Keeps Calling the Shots

Shazam! got another shout out from its hero-seeking fan base, heroically reaching the top of the domestic box office for the second weekend in a row. A Little story found a big place in moviegoers’ hearts while Hellboy discovered vengeance less than sweet. Pet Sematary contained the furriest undead as the very lively Dumbo continued to cinematically soar.
It was a big weekend at the movies, where all of our characters, from the little to the larger-than life, were proudly displaying the hero (or hellion) residing within, with all of the missing pieces ultimately connecting beautifully together.
Which of our big tales did you connect the most with this weekend?

2. Little $15.5 million.
3. Hellboy $12 million.

Connecting the Missing Movie Links

With the Missing Link on the hunt for a prime box-office location, how much longer will Dumbo remain the driving (movie) force among our littlest moviegoers? Will the imaginary hero within Shazam! get lost in all that family-friendly action? Can Captain Marvel keep her audience from going astray? Will we all be kept Five Feet Apart from the horrors awaiting Us (both real and reel) now that Hellboy has entered the movie ring? Who will he be making The Best of Enemies with, his fellow hellions or the aforementioned heroes?
Will a creepy visit to the local Pet Cemetery uncover a hellish nightmare, resulting in a scare lover’s dream come true?
Last (but not least) will a Little “coming-of-age” comedy result in a big box-office return?
How big are your movie dreams this weekend?

A Heroic Cinematic Shout Out

Shazam! conjured up the biggest audience at the domestic box office this weekend, searching for the hidden, cinematic hero within us all. In need of redemption, the residents of the local Pet Cemetery provided the creepiest place horror lovers loved visiting. Following that nightmare-inducing tale, Dumbo remained the answer to our childhood-seeking dreams. Us felt right at home among the heroes and the hell raisers while Captain Marvel was still winning in the Miss Marvelous Department.
Heroes held our attention this weekend at the movies as Disney was still doing big business, a cemetery contained a lot of lively action and doppelgangers still had us seeing double (and liking it).

2. Pet Cemetery $25 million.
