Weekend Impressions

Deadpool 2 may narrowly be Number One at the box office over the weekend, taking the floating throne away from Thanos and Avengers: Infinity War. I say “may narrowly” because Avengers 3 has been holding pretty well at the box office in addition to the fact that Avengers 3 has not faced a strong threat until this weekend. That threat has arrived and with the unprecedented box office take of the first Deadpool film ($363 Million at the domestic box office, $783.1 Million world-wide – all for a R-rated film), Deadpool 2 has more than a good shot at being Number One this weekend.

Avengers: Infinity War will be Second at the box office over the weekend during its fourth week in domestic release.

Show Dogs will be Third at the box office over the weekend. Since this is a new family-friendly film and its about dogs, it should do decent in its opening weekend, below Deadpool 2 and the Avengers 3, before dropping precipitously in the following weeks at the box office.

Book Club will be Fourth at the box office over the weekend. Book Club has some big names and former big names in the film industry, which will spark interest for this comedy.

Life of the Party will be Fifth at the box office. This will be the last weekend in which Life of the Party is in the Top Five at the box office.

If there is a movie to seek out this weekend, other than the aforementioned, it would be: First Reformed.
