Top 5: Weekend Box Office
Did you see in a movie this weekend? Here's what's Number One at the Box Office!
Three new movies opened this weekend. A family-friendly animated film based on a toy; the latest from the Marvel Cinematic Universe; and a World War II movie.
Which one came out on top? Here's your Top 5 Weekend Box Office:
Robert Langdon is back! Tom Hanks and Ron Howard team-up again to bring a Robert Brown novel to the big screen! I really enjoyed The DaVinci Code and Angels and Demons. Hanks' Langdon is that modern-day Indiana Jones. Kinda like Nicholas Cage in the National Treasure films. Inferno isn't doing very well. I've been hearing words like "flop". Inferno made $6.3 Million over the weekend, bringing it up to $26.1M in its second week in theaters.
Tyler Perry is a really inspiring story. I guess a kind of a rags to riches story. He's been very successful as Madea. Not so much successful in trying to reboot the Alex Cross franchise. Three weeks in theaters, his latest Madea movie has made $7.8M, for a total of $65 Million!
What happened to Mel Gibson? Oh, yeah that's right, he's had some very unfortunate personal problems that have been very, very public. Robert Downy, Jr. is still hoping he'll direct the fourth Iron Man movie as maybe a way to make a big comeback. His latest, Hacksaw Ridge, made 14.8M over the weekend. I know they've rebooted Mad Max without him, but is he too old for another Lethal Weapon movie with Danny Glover?
Anna Kendrick is one of those actresses I could watch in anything. I mean that. I missed seeing her and Sam Rockwell in Mr. Right at the theaters. We rented it from Family Video a few weeks ago, and I believe the two of them would be perfect as The Joker and Harley Quinn! Trolls, with Justin Timberlake made $45.6M over the weekend!
He was Smaug the dragon, opposite Martin Freeman in The Hobbit. Freeman was just in this year's Captain America: Civil War. Together, the duo are Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson. Benedict Cumberbatch leads the latest phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Dr. Strange, raking in $85 Million at the box office over the weekend! He is set to appear opposite fellow Sherlock Holmes, Robert Downy, Jr. in Avengers: Infinity War and with Chris Hemsworth and Mark Ruffalo in Thor: Ragnarok.
