Fun at a Funeral?

There’s something for everyone this weekend at the movies. For the littlest among us, How To Train Your Dragon 2: Hidden World will uncover the most imaginative universe, with The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part offering the sweetest seconds. Horror lovers are promised A Happy Death Day 2U while The Turning pledges to tame the creepiest of cinematic souls. Who among them will be taking a turn for the worse?
Turning briefly to those new in town, will the clearly-troubled Greta be clashing with The Wedding Guest, who’s on his own troubling journey?
A trip through the comedic world wouldn’t be complete without someone asking Isn’t It Romantic? when What Men Want primarily is to let the women lead. Leading into another month in movie town, A Madea Family Funeral promises to grieve alongside their (hopefully) large crowd of madcap mourners. Fighting With My Family, naturally, comes with the cinematic territory, providing all the necessary “grief.”
Fortunately, Alita: Battle Angel is in fine fighting form, ready to take on whatever tale threatens to creatively kill our upcoming weekend.
Which of our battling tales will bring a bit of creativity to your weekend?

A Hidden World Reveals the Biggest Success

 

How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World revealed the secret to movie success, openly coming in first at the domestic box office. Alita: Battle Angel remained in fighting form, The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part continued to be an integral part of the movie experience while Fighting with My Family was an entertaining experience all its own. Finally, Isn’t It Romantic? had even the cynics starry-eyed.
A weekend at the movies revealed a world we story lovers seek, on the screen if not in reality, where all ages are represented, devils and angels entertainingly interact, family is forever and love always fits in nicely among the realists and the romantics alike, with each part perfectly complementing each other.

Horror, Humor and High Times Within Hidden Worlds

 

Will the folks behind How To Train Your Dragon: (find nirvana within) The Hidden World or will audiences prefer the entertaining seconds found inside The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part (whose first and second week at play did their small part to entertain the family-friendly movie masses?)
Might The definitely-not familial Turning sway audiences away from The petrifying (if not profitable) Prodigy, who isn’t kidding around? Is it possible for a Happy Death Day 2U to result in a lively if not lovely day at the movies?
What about that lively Alita: Battle Angel, who’s moved onto her next life? Who will she be battling this weekend?
For the fun as opposed to frightening seekers roaming our movie theaters, Isn’t It Romantic? to discover What Men Want (with the hope that what they really want includes a romantic comedy and perhaps, time permitting, the Cold Pursuit of a bigger crowd alongside some edge-of-your-seat action?)
What part of your movie weekend are you looking forward to pursuing?

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?
