Monday Morning Hangover Report – 5.2.2016

The Jungle Book Still Rules The Jungle

Cocktails and Movies Monday Morning Hangover Report Jungle Book 2016 wolf

Well, it’s time again to look at what happened over the weekend as we bring you the Monday Morning Hangover Report where we talk about the weekend box office and anything else that may have happened. First, let me thank everyone that came out to “Cats and Cocktails” yesterday as we called it. The LA group went to see Keanu and had a pretty good time with three drinks apiece and great seats! But, enough about me, and us here in LA. Let’s see what YOU did this weekend.

As expectedThe Jungle Book retained the top spot, again surpassing my expectations last Friday by over 25%. And that’s where any idea of what I’m doing went completely out the window. The only correct pick that was even close was The Huntsman: Winter’s War and its box office at $10 million. My guess was still over its take and the movie came in at number three. Which means that this was a horrible weekend at the box office. Maybe kids (and fanboy adults) are just keeping their dollars until next weekend, the weekend after that and after that… as the big summer movies come out. Keanu, which we loved, did not inspire non “Key & Peele” fans to come to the theaters. And neither did Ratchet & Clank. But, the box office fortunes look to change as the summer movie season rolls out huge with a few comic book movies next week…

Let’s see what happened this weekend.

Huntsman suffers from Jagermeister-sized hangover…

Execs at Universal react to their movie.

Let’s look at what happened over the weekend as we bring you the Monday Morning Hangover Report, which we do in the afternoon because well, “hangover” is in the title…

As expectedThe Jungle Book retained the top spot, surpassing my expectations last Friday by over 33%. But, the big surprise (or maybe not, if you look at the RottenTomatoes.com score – 17%) was the horrible box office opening for The Huntsman: Winter’s War, which didn’t even reach OUR expectations. You can expect some execs at Universal to be pulling out their hair, and their flasks from the back of the bottom drawers.

Nixon’s war on drugs vs. the war between two fairy tale queens

It’s a tough weekend here in the CocktailsandMovies.com offices after the tragic death of Prince. So, we’re setting up the office with purple cocktails and pulling out our copy of Purple Rain on VHS (going old school today!) to celebrate with cocktails and movies this movie that still holds up well today. But, that doesn’t mean there isn’t anything out in theaters. The Jungle Book crushed the competition last week and it looks like it will hold serve again, as we just can’t see The Huntsman: Winter’s War taking a big enough bite out of it to jump to the top. After that it’s anyone’s guess about the top three. But, Tim will take a stab at it (hey, he’s getting better), and try to predict what is going to happen this weekend.

Let’s see what’s new this week.
