Big Hero 6 rockets to the top, while Interstellar makes a killing worldwide and Gone Girl clings to the top five!
Good Monday morning, Mixers! After a couple of months off for Drinkmaster Tim and the staff, we’re back with your Monday Morning Hangover Report.
We hope your weekend was as productive and ice filled as ours was, as we’ve been restocking the bar back to office regulations, dusting off the glassware and pulled the barstools off the bar, especially considering “Manhattan” Mike Reyes has staggered back to the well and shown up in the offices again. (Though to be fair, he hasn’t been given the key to the top shelf of the drink cabinet, so he’s only allowed to drink from the Well liquors.) Professional reprimands aside, we’ve got the weekend box office numbers from the first weekend of “Winter Tentpole” season!

Cocktails and Movies laughed our asses off and so, apparently, did you!
Oh, hello there, July! The first half of 2013 has come to a close and for the last weekend in June, comedies took five of the top ten spots this weekend at your local multi-plex, and three of the top four spots. Throw in a zombie flick and an iconic American super hero and you’ve got the top five movies.
Cocktail and Movies West took in The Heat Sunday night and laughed our butts off enough to suggest to ourselves, “We totally need to see this again!” With this weekend over and in the books, here are the top ten films you saw in your local multiplex across America this weekend:

It’s the weekend! Grab some cocktails and go see some movies!
Able to prognosticate with wit and wisdom in a single blog post! Faster than a speeding thought! Look, up in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s this weekend’s Flicks to Pick!
It’s time for another glorious weekend of Flicks to Pick here at Cocktails and Movies Central. While we got it slightly wrong last weekend, we’re not sweating it. The process of prognostication around here is constantly being tweaked, and we’re finding new ways to use the data and forecasting tools at hand to make more accurate predictions for your perusal. We’re constantly rebuilding, making it faster, stronger, and better for all mankind. (And that’s just the office drink cart maintenance we’ve been undertaking!)

Don’t remember what movie you saw this weekend? Cocktails and Movies can tell you…
NO2!!!!! This weekend was one for the books, kids! You evidently saw our Cocktails and Movies reviews and helped Fast and Furious 6 to the best Memorial Day weekend opening EVER! It looks like we underestimated the horse power that this reinvigorated series has, and we underestimated just how much clout the “Three Man Wolf Pack” had lost between one crappy sequel to the next. Before we examine the walloping at this weekend’s box office barrage, let’s take a look at who landed where.
Note: these are 4-DAY WEEKEND GROSSES THROUGH MEMORIAL DAY:

Trifecta, kids! Like Kevin Spacey at Pimlico, we picked the horses this weekend and won! We placed the first three films correctly, but had a bit of a snafu with the numbers. It’s a process, these things take time. But, we’re getting the hanging of this projection thing.
Here were your Top Ten choices for this past weekend.
