Groundhog Day for horror films leads the box office as Happy Death Day wins the weekend

Cocktails and Movies Monday Morning Hangover Report Happy Death Day

Two weeks into October and we have a surprise winner this Halloween season, as Happy Death Day opens EXACTLY as I suspected. People love their horror this time of year and it’s getting some surprisingly good reviews. Disappointingly, people are staying away from the brilliant, albeit long, Bladerunner 2049. I bet if Kevin Hart was in it, people would have flocked to see it. Come on, people! Elevate your taste in movies. Also disappointing was Professor Martson and the Wonder Women, which although it opened on 1200+ screens, made a disappointing $700,000. Well, let’s hand out some mimosas and see how needs a stiff double bloody mary.

Let’s take a look at the number and get into this morning as we bring you the Cocktails and Movies Monday Morning Hangover Report.

Can anyone set the box office afire as it continues to smolder?

Whaddaya Got On Tap oct 13thWhat the hell is happening out there, Mixers? Blade Runner 2049 somehow fell flat on its face, and we don’t know how that even happened. It’s lead to some late nights, and some heavy glassware cleansing, as we tend to polish our rocks glasses as we think in the office. But instead of sinking any more time into such sad prospects, we’re ready to look to the future! There’s some big new flicks coming out this week, and we’re not going to let this dark patch put us off of our cocktails or our movies. So let’s fill a glass, and see what’s coming to the Tap this weekend here on Friday the 13th as we ask, “Whaddya Got On Tap?”

Are you sitting in your cubicle with stacks of TPS reports to go through? Listening to that conference call where everyone is talking at the same time about nothing at all that matters? Stuck at the water cooler hearing about Blade Runner 2049 took the top spot at the box office! Need something to watch with that flask in your desk and that burned microwave popcorn from the break room? Let us share movie trailers with you. Now that the summer season is a distant image in our rear-view mirror, we have gotten a lot more movie trailers to view for this week’s The Thursday Trailer Tap

Mixers, you don’t know how hard it’s been to wait for Blade Runner 2049. And now it’s finally here! We can stop looping the Final Cut of Ridley Scott’s original, as well as constantly passing each other in the hallway with utterances of “Too bad she won’t live. Then again, who does?” or any other line that comes to mind. (Tim here: The ’92 director’s cut of Bladerunner is one of my top two favorite movies – tied with Casablanca – and I was not and still not entirely sold on this sequel. BUT, I will still see it.)

That’s not the only film out in theaters this weekend, as there are a couple other contenders that want some of that sweet box office pie. So without any further delay, let’s look at this weekend’s field, so we can get out of here and get in line at the local multiplex as we ask you, like we do EVERY Friday: Whaddya Got on Tap?
