50 Shades whips heroes and bunnies

Monday Morning Hangover Report 50 Shades Freed

Well, America, this is what you get. Sure, it’s been a while since we’ve put this together for you. But, this is what you get when you don’t demand more and better from those that run the studios. Not that there is much to see out there. But, why did you all have to go see the last installment of such a bad series of books? And a trilogy of movies that were just awful? There were three new movies in big release last weekend and they all came in #1-3. We’ll get to all that in a minute or two.

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

Boo scares up enough to take the top spot at the box office 

Cocktails and Movies Monday Morning Hangover Report Boo 2

Well, America, this is what you get. This is what you get when you don’t demand more and better from those that run the studios. When you have movies out there like Bladerunner 2049 and Battle of the Sexes, why do you need to go see Madea movies? There were five new movies in big release last weekend and only two of them fared well. We’ll get to all that in a minute or two.

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.

IT returns to the top as September goes out with a record take

cocktailsandmovies monday morning hangover report IT Pennywise and red balloon

What a September, cocktailers!  IT has made almost $300 million, making it the biggest September movie ever. And that was on a $35 million budget. After a summer of failures and movies that didn’t click with audiences, September seemed to staunch the bleeding. As for the last weekend of September, three of the top 10 movies were new releases THIS weekend. And the top there were all within a few hundred thousand dollars of each other. What an epic battle!

U.S. box office shows signs of life

monday morning hangover report kingsman the golden circle

The U.S. box office is showing a few signs of life as Kingsman: The Golden Circle has a good, not great showing. Yours truly saw it over the weekend, and it was a fun ride, but not quite the winner was that the first one was. However, Ninjago looks like a bit of a disappointment when you consider the original Lego Movie and Lego Batman were so good. Bigger movies are certainly coming up in October and November and we’ll look at those this week in our Fall Movie Preview, but for now let’s get this show on the road, as we bring you the Cocktails and Movies Monday Morning Hangover Report.
