In Theaters This Week (4/21/2017): Free Fire, Unforgettable, The Promise

Free Fire, Brie Larson

Each Thursday we look at what is going to be coming out in theaters this weekend, show you the trailers for the big releases, predict the box office winner and just generally give you enough of a carrot to pull you through the rest of the work week.  F8 has three new challengers to its reign, but nothing is going to stop its reign atop the box office this week or next.  It’s going to take a couple Guardians of the Galaxy to stop them.

In Theaters This Week (4/14/2017): Fate of the Furious, The Lost City of Z, Spark

The Lost City of Z, Charlie Hunan

Each Thursday we look at what is going to be coming out in theaters this weekend, show you the trailers for the big releases, predict the box office winner and just generally give you enough of a carrot to pull you through the rest of the work week.  The reign of terror by the animated middle management baby genre will come to an end this weekend as a box office juggernaut, a highly-acclaimed adaptation of a nonfiction classic, and another horrifyingly bad animated film hit the screens.

No formal “In Theaters” Column This Week

Alec Baldwin, The Boss Baby

I’m on the road this week, so no formal “In Theaters” column, but a quick check in.  Could all of my readers who took their urchins to The Boss Baby last week and made it $50 million dollars please raise their right hands?  Ok, I just used telekinetic powers to slice off those hands which I feel is proportional punishment for inflicting us with a puppy hating, suit wearing, ankle biter who is now-as we speak-getting a sequel put into development.  NO I AM NOT BITTER YOU RUINED MY WINNING STREAK!  Yes, I am bitter.  And I think the stupid thing will edge out Beauty and the Beast over this weekend again (though the latter will probably pass the $1 billion mark  globally later this week).  The new releases this weekend: The Case for Christ, Smurfs 3….5….18…frankly I lost track, and Going in Style won’t challenge either of them.  So smug baby Jack Donaghy will win again.  Evil triumphs.  Hope fades.  Never have I been so happy that a Fast and the Furious movie was on the horizon.

Jessica Chastain, The Zookeper's Wife

Each Thursday we look at what is going to be coming out in theaters this weekend, show you the trailers for the big releases, predict the box office winner and just generally give you enough of a carrot to pull you through the rest of the work week.  MARCH MOVIE MADNESS ends after five weeks of major releases with two anticipated adaptations and the Alec Baldwin baby film.  Yep.  That one.

In Theaters This Week (3/17/2017): Life, Power Rangers, CHiPS

Life

Each Thursday we look at what is going to be coming out in theaters this weekend, show you the trailers for the big releases, predict the box office winner and just generally give you enough of a carrot to pull you through the rest of the work week.  Week 4 of the MONTH OF MADNESS brings an intriguing science fiction epic and two really unappealing updates of old TV series (TIME TO SEE LOGAN OR BEAUTY AND THE BEAST AGAIN!).
