I would have never guessed that Doctor Sleep would have tanked at the box office, but it was sunk by last week’s champion Midway. Ford vs. Ferrari looks like it will claim the top spot at the box office this week. It’s an original film with a great cast and it has received some excellent reviews.
Charlie’s Angels looks thrilling, but the reviews have been less than stellar.
The Matrix Reloaded would be a delightful treat to enjoy this weekend.
Have a great week and enjoy the show. Get ready for a blustery storm to attack the box office next week and claim the top spot.
