Cocktails and Movies Winds Back The Weekend of June 6th – 9th
What did YOU see this weekend? Cocktails and Movies knows, and we’re not afraid to prove it!
If this past weekend wasn’t an unpredictable skirmish, then you must have been sitting in the bargain theater where Iron Man 3 is still kicking some ass in AAA ball. We went two out of three with the top slots, putting too much faith in one property and not enough in the other. Mr. and Mrs. movie-goer, you continue to surprise us and that’s fine with us! Just so long as we know about it in advance. (Hey, this prediction market is a good way to make a name for yourself in the industry…)
You didn’t see much this weekend, but Cocktails and Movies will tell you what you DID see.
More people obviously watched Game of Thrones last night than care about Will Smith and son…
Did you hear that? That whooshing sound in the background is Will Smith’s box office beginning to make its first lap around the drain; so much so, that Wild Wild West looks like a positive career move. (Even though it’s a guilty pleasure for some of us here at Cocktails and Movies – actually, just Mike) Yes, the once crowned “King of July 4th weekend” has fallen so far from the lofty post he has occupied for so long. All this thanks to his eagerness to try and turn his son into a cash cow, (hey, just give him a damn allowance like normal people!!!), and M. Night Shyamalan’s lack of ability when it comes to anything remotely cinematic. This movie underperformed so much that John Carter made more money in three days last March! (Again, another good film we here at C&M happen to enjoy for its own merits. – again, Mike. Tim hasn’t seen it.)

And there goes Memorial Day! What a weekend beat down the boys with the NO2-fueled, supercharged FF6 put on the poor Wolfpack from Hangover III. Thanks for coming to play, and buh-bye! At the time of writing this, Fast and Furious 6 has made approximately $131 million and may just have enough to win this weekend’s box office, even with two new movies debuting in theaters, one with Will Smith and son. The other a top-notch cast with a fun premise.

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:

Memorial Day Weekend has come! All roads have led to this. Here’s what you and your wolf pack should be seeing this weekend.
We’re gonna keep this brief, because this weekend is going to be a HUGE battle for box office supremacy. It’s going to be a battle royale title fight that we won’t see for some time this summer. Two contenders, huge in their own right, are ready to duke it out for that #1 spot. And don’t forget kids’ movies do well on long weekends. Although, with our keen insight and ever improving prognostication skills, plus the fact that we’ve seen two of them and posted reviews already, it may not be much of a battle in the end. Enough spinning our wheels, let’s see what Hollywood’s offering us for entertainment this weekend.
