Well, well, well. Looks Like "Ford v. Ferrari" managed to knock everything out, taking first place this weekend with $31.5M. That's not too shabby. In fact, I'd say that's darn-right good.
On the other hand, "Charlie's Angels" bombed pretty hard. Not sure what happened here, but audiences were having none of it. "Charlie's Angels" only earned $8.4M, which is further proof that the "Tom curse" exists. Every movie he associates himself with has something bad happen to it, either dropping off the schedule, or failing specatularly. Maybe give Rob some of that old-fashioned, evil gyspy magic, so "Star Wars" fails.

It's another "Black Panther" origin story! Wait, no... I don't think that's right. It's "21 bridges" and now Black Panther is a cop on the beat trying to isolate Manhattan by closing, wait for it, the 21 bridges connecting to it! The movie concept is in the title! You don't see that too often. I estimate a poor opening of $11M this weekend.
Tom Hanks, the most wholesome actor in the entire world, is playing Mr. Rogers, in "A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood". The amount of wholesomeness in this movie is too damn high! Maybe someone will die tragically. Hahaha, what if one of the puppets does a mass shooting in Imagination Land? That would be insane. $23M sounds right, right? Right.
Hoo-boy, we got a big one on our hands. "Frozen 2" is out! Time to dust off your Elsa cosplay costumes and flock to the theatres this weekend! I have to be honest; that first teaser trailer looked really bad-ass. It came off as gritty "Frozen". The more they release about the movie, the more watered-down (pun kind of intended) it seems. These kinds of movies are not for us and I still think it will earn $124M this weekend. That seems like a lot, but there is zero product for families to go see this weekend.
