Now In-Theater: April 14, 2017
The motion pictures now in-theater are from various Hollywood and independent movie studios. Some of the films are in wide release (600 screens or more in the United States and Canada) and some are in limited release (a motion picture that is playing in a select few theaters across the country [typically in cities such as New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco]).
The Fate of the Furious
Spark: A Space Tail
The Lost City of Z
Chasing Trane: The John Coltrane Documentary
Maurizio Cattelan: Be Right Back
Mission Control: The Unsung Heroes of Apollo
Norman: The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer
A Quiet Passion
The Fate of the Furious will be the Number One film at the box office over the weekend. It’s guaranteed, so much so that the film could have been called The Legacy of the Furious. The film has a story-line that goes back more than a decade with characters and motivations that the viewer comes into the theater already knowing. Those motivations get turned on their head in this film with Vin Diesel‘s character going evil. Fans of the series will go to the theater to find out why.
This is also the Fast film after Paul Walker‘s untimely and tragic death. Fans will want to see how the series moves on from his involvement.
The Boss Baby will be Number Two this weekend. It debuted far higher than people were expecting two weeks ago and the animated film for closers shows no signs of weakening. A sequel is bound to materialize in the next three or four years.
Beauty and the Beast will be Number Three. Like The Boss Baby, Beauty and the Beast exceeded most analyst’s expectations. The question is, will and how will Disney create a franchise out of what was built as a stand-alone film?
Smurfs: The Lost Village will be Number Fourth.
Going in Style will be Fifth at the box office this weekend. Unless it finds an audience, this will be the last weekend that Going in Style is in the Top Five at the box office.
