Hey all – Steve here. We had three new releases hit theaters this weekend and only one of them made an impact. The other 2 finished 11th and 13th. Nothing to see there. Now, let’s get to it!

1. Get Out

This Weekend – $33.4 million

Total – $33.4 million

This one is outstanding and absolutely deserves to be the Box Office King this weekend. After being at 100% for the longest time on Rotten Tomatoes, some joker named Armond White from the National Review came around with a rotten review. It now sits at 99%. 142 positive. 1 negative. Nice job, Armond. Nice job. Way to ruin it.

Oh, here is Ralph’s review just in case you missed it!

2. The LEGO Batman Movie

Budget – $80 million

This Weekend – $19.2 million

Total – $133.2 million

Not much more t say about this one as it is well passed it’s budget of $80 million and still the talk of the kiddy world. Keep on going, Mr.  Wayne.

3. John Wick: Chapter 2

Budget – $40 million

This Weekend – $9.4 million

Total – $74.8 million

This guy right here slides UP a spot to #3 this weekend. I still have not gone to see this one and I know how disappointing it is, but it is what it is. I will get there. Eventually.

4. The Great Wall

Budget – $150 million

This Weekend – $9.1 million

Total – $34.8 million

The money from the international waters is drying up and The Great Wall is quickly becoming The Great Bust. Still $21 million from its budget including international intake – stop the bleeding.

5. Fifty Shades Darker

Budget – $55 million

This Weekend – $7.8 million

Total – $103.7 million

Ugh, you guys are such assholes. This piece of white hot smoldering trash has now crossed the $100 million mark and is still on Steve’s Top 5 at the Box Office. The ONLY reasons that this one is still hanging around is because Fist Fight is right behind it and Hidden Figures, La La Land and Split are at $130 million or more already. Stop. The. Madness.

That’s all for this weekend people. Next week we have Before I Fall, Logan and The Shack. Remember what I told you about 50 Shades and The Great Wall – I better not have to talk about them again next week. You’ve been warned. Have a great week!
