Hey all – Steve here. We just got treated to a nice 4 day Box Office weekend, so we will take this one from Friday through Monday. We had two brand new entries into the Top 5 this weekend and they were both pretty disappointing as they finished number 3 and 5. Great way to start off. Alright, let’s get to this please.

1. The LEGO Batman Movie

Budget – $80 million

This Weekend – $42.5 million

Total – $107.1 million

Nope, I still haven’t seen this one. You know, I have been cursed so far this year with pretty crappy movies. I think I might have most of my worst 10 of the year already in mind. Meanwhile, I am missing the likes of The LEGO Batman movie. Go figure.

2. Fifty Shades Darker

Budget – $55 million

This Weekend – $23.3 million

Total – $92 million

I was lucky enough to be able to check this one out. Actually, you know what? I can’t even be sarcastic about this. Underneath it all (no pun intended) there is a good movie. Too bad it doesn’t show its face. I laughed through most of this one. What is the problem with this country right now? Well, that’s a conversation for another day, but we can start off with this one making over $90 million so far and it sitting at a putrid 9% on Rotten Tomatoes.

3. The Great Wall

Budget – $150 million

This Weekend – $21.7 million

Total – $21.7 million

Ugh. $150 million budget? This one. What is there to say? It is mediocre at best. The only thing The Great Wall has going for it is its international presence. It has already made $244 million internationally. Good for those guys.

4. John Wick: Chapter 2

Budget – $40 million

This Weekend – $19.1 million

Total – $61.3 million

So. I missed this one, too. One day later I got to see Fifty Shades Darker. I ask you – is life really that unfair?

5. Fist Fight

Budget – $16 million

This Weekend – $14.5 million

Total – $14.5 million

Another not-so-great flick I have had the pleasure of seeing. An unfunny comedy is the worst thing in theaters. Even worst than a horror flick that isn’t scary. That, my friends is a fact.

That’s all for this weekend people. I’ve seen the 3 crappy movies in the Top 5 and missed the better 2 options. I will rectify that soon. Book it. Next weekend? We have Get Out, Rock Dog and Collide. Have a great week, everyone.
