Another Fast & Furious Summer Weekend

Summer Presentations

Summer is speeding by, as Fast & Furious Presents Hobbs & Shaw once again to their faithful followers. Will their presentation result in an even bigger audience this weekend? How much longer will The Lion King remain box-office royalty? Can The Art of Racing in the Rain outpace their family-friendly competition? Will Dora and the Lost City of Gold find the biggest PG audience in our cinematic world this weekend, sending our Toy Story 4 friends on an adventure outside of the limelight?
Will the lights soon grow dim Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, where, ironically, the brightest stars are discovered? Might Spider-Man: (discover being) Far From Home isn’t all it’s cracked up to be?
Moving on, is in The Kitchen where all of the action awaits, where a Crawl through criminal activity is sure to rival a day at the beach? Who will narrate the best Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark?

A Fast And Furious Box-Office Finish

Fast & Furious Presents Hobbs & Shaw to a new audience (along with their longtime loyal followers) this weekend at the movies, once again proving that the past holds the present’s most profitable stories. The Lion King took a step down in the movie kingdom but still remained royalty as audiences fondly recalled Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Spider-Man: Far From Home continued to be welcomed in our cinematic home away from home. Always cozy no matter where they roam, the Toy Story 4 gang held the attention of the littlest (and not so little) moviegoers.
It was a fast-paced weekend, with action competing with old Hollywood and animation naturally holding a happy place in our imaginative world.
Where did our imaginative universe take you this weekend?

Hollywood Presents the Summer Stars

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, the stars united, paying homage to, among others, The Lion King, who successfully brought days gone by to our modern movie theaters (as only the coolest kings can do). In the here and now, and royalty aside, how much farther can Spider-Man: Far From Home travel?

Who will be commanding the most attention this weekend? Will it be our Toy Story 4 friends, who tell the greatest tales? With Yesterday’s best stories taking up so much cinematic space, will original tales have to Crawl along in search of their audience?
What will the future hold for our aforementioned stars when Fast & Furious Presents Hobbs & Shaw to moviegoers both past and present? Will Them That Follow, creepy group of wannabes they are, stand out among so many stars?
Who will be our stand-out stars this weekend?

A King in Hollywood Time

The Lion King remained royalty from days past as well as present times, where he once again came in first at the domestic box office. Once Upon A Time in Hollywood, a story about a washed up actor and his stunt double proved to be the Hollywood story to tell, impressing A and B-list actors (and your average moviegoer) alike.
A total A-lister, Spider-Man: (was) Far From Home but kept finding the best places to sling his web. Toy Story 4 enjoyed another story-filled weekend as action-seeking moviegoers endured another Crawl through our treacherous cinematic streets.
Once Upon a Time, actors, animators, heroes, hellions and all characters in between had their own story to tell, and happily ever after didn’t necessarily depend on box-office numbers. This weekend, those stories (and more) were on big-screen display, making for the perfect summer weekend.
Which of our Hollywood stories made your weekend perfect?

Estimated Domestic Box Office Results:
1 . The Lion King $75.5 million.
2. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood $40.4 million.
3. Spider-Man: Far From Home $12.2 million.
4. Toy Story 4 $9.9 million.
5. Crawl $4 million.

Hollywood Times

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio decided to make a movie together. Will they have the ultimate Hollywood debut, or will last weekend’s champion The Lion King be roaring to the top, waving a royal hello to Spider-Man: (who may be) Far From Home but thus far has enjoyed some pretty profitable sights. The Toy Story 4 gang has enjoyed their trip away from home as well, gaining new fans along the way. Stuber has barely cinematically survived his road trip from hell, but don’t be too concerned about him, at least he didn’t have to Crawl his way into the box-office ring, unlike our latest scrappy heroine, who could seriously use a summer vacation (sans alligators).

With Hollywood offering so many stories to choose from, will Yesterday soon be fading into forgotten days gone by?
Back to the present, which of our Hollywood stars will provide the best summer break for you this weekend?

The King Clobbers the Competition

The Lion King was the comeback kid this weekend, cinematically speaking, of course, taking the top spot at the domestic box office as only a true king can. A king in his own heroic right, Spider-Man: Far From Home continued to save summer moviegoers, our Toy Story 4 friends were still in animated attendance, moviegoers once again took in a catastrophic Crawl and Yesterday reminded us that the past contains some of the best story ideas.
Our story-filled weekend included many welcomed blasts from the past, a lion reigned supreme, home proved to be a state of cinematic mind, toys were all heart, a crawl throughout movie theaters was scary and music was the sweetest memory keeper.
Which of our sweet stories will be keeping a place in your memory?

2. Spider-Man: Far From Home $21 million.
3. Toy Story 4 $14.6 million.
