Now In-Theater: May 26, 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]).
This Week’s In-Theater Releases
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales
Buena Vista Social Club: Adios
Long Strange Trip – The Untold Story of The Grateful Dead
The Here After
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales will be the Number One film at the box office this weekend. It has the momentum coming off of its Thursday night take at the box office. It is led by an A-list actor (Johnny Depp) and the main villain (Javier Bardem) won a Oscar for playing a villain in No Country for Old Men. Add to that that Orlando Bloom reprises his role in the series and fans of the franchise are going to show up in droves to see Jack Sparrow, I mean Captain Jack Sparrow’s, latest adventure.
Baywatch will be the Number Two film this weekend. Pirates of the Caribbean 5 and Baywatch are great counter-programming to the horror film that barely took the top spot at the box office last weekend. Regarding Baywatch, there will be a lot of curious people venturing into theaters with their friends to see how funny and raunchy the film lead by The Rock and Zack Efron actually is. There will also be a segment of the audience that were fans of the 90’s TV show that will go to theaters to see if the film incarnation is as good as the original.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will be Third at the box office this weekend. The way the comic book movie has been holding at the box office week after week, Alien: Covenant should slip below it this weekend.
Alien: Covenant will be Fourth at the box office this weekend.
Everything, Everything will be Fifth. I was surprised that it cracked ten million last weekend but between Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Alien: Covenant, the new competition last weekend was pretty thin.
With Wonder Woman opening next weekend, this may be the last weekend that Everything, Everything cracks the Top Five at the box office.
