So far so good for an opening weekend. "Fifty Shades Freed" has earned well over what it deserves to be making. Sitting at $38.8M so far, it points and laughs at us and our ignorance.

Speaking of stupid movies, "Peter Rabbit" also made a good chunk of change, with $25M over the weekend.

Black Panther February 16, 2018 Rob G. $38 3,800

"Black Panther" is a big deal. Here is (I think) the first major blockbuster that is led by an all black cast. Plus, it's apparently very good! This doesn't look like a cash grab because the existing universe was black-driven and nothing seems to be pigeon-holed in. It's a good story with an appropriate cast of characters, which speaking of is through the roof as well. This is going to be exciting to track. $110M.
