Reviewing The Great Wall
Well, this has been a tough battle, new release after a new release – Topping up the box office in the passed weekend are “The Lego Batman Movie” and “Fifty Shades Darker,” – The two awesome movies that you have to see, both on top of the charts, opened to the No. 1 and No. 2, respectively,last weekend.
Yet, again Three more new releases also hit theaters Friday one of which includes the U.S.-China co-production “The Great Wall.” Other releases includes the R-rated Ice Cube comedy “Fist Fight” and the Keanu Reeves hit “John Wick: Chapter 2.”
According to Harald
Most analysts predict that “The Lego Batman Movie” will continue its run at No. 1 domestically, following an opening of $53 million last weekend. The Warner Bros. animated movie, featuring the voice of Will Arnett, could follow up with around $30 million Friday through Monday, boosted by good reviews and a strong audience response, evidenced by an A-minus CinemaScore. A second weekend at the summit will be good news for the studio, which started the franchise with 2014’s “The Lego Movie.”
However, there’s a chance that “Fifty Shades Darker” will fight its way to the top. Perhaps moms who took their kids to see “Lego Batman” last weekend will choose a ladies night or date night with the erotic drama this time around. That depends on whether interest in the series can overpower negative reviews. The first “Fifty Shades” installment declined significantly in its second weekend.
Let’s wait and see…
