Good Monday morning, mixers! Well, the JK Rowling movie train keeps rolling along. And this one didn’t even leave from Platform 7 and 3/4! Fantastic Beasts… rolled through the competition this past weekend, leaving all the other nine movies COMBINED in the dust.

Let’s take a look at what transpired this weekend at the box office in our Cocktails and Movies Weekend Wrap Up.

It Was The Best of Times & Worst of Times, And The End of Times! The Last Weekend Wrap Session of 2013!

Cocktails and Movies Weekend Wrap Up 12-30Here we are, the last Weekend Wrap Session of 2013. It’s been a hell of a year here at C&M and we’d just like to thank you all again for jumping on board with this little “Dog and Pony Show.”  In the coming days as we look forward to 2014, we’ll be reflecting on what 2013 meant for movies, cocktails, and where Cocktails and Movies goes from here. For now though, we have a bit of a question for you all, so perhaps you could help us answer the riddle of the moment: were there any new movies released this weekend? Looks like your guess was as good as ours, judging by the grosses of this weekend’s new contenders. Here’s the rundown of who placed where this weekend at the movies:

Here are this weekend’s estimates with the answers to those and other questions we failed to ask on Friday. (Hey, it’s the holidays and “holiday weather!”)

A dragon fires to the top of the Box Office… But comes up short historically

Weekend Wrap UPLast weekend’s box office was a decent showing, despite various SantaCons going on throughout the nation, and a snowy climate in the Northeastern part of the country. (Also, to all you SantaCon people out there, you now officially have no excuse to mock people dressing up for movie openings and ComicCon. We’re all in the “dressing as imaginary figures” boat now, and it’s practically a cruise ship. And, we don’t brawl in the streets.) We don’t know what you guys thought was going on, but we pretty much pegged the rankings for the top 5. Although our figures were a bit off, so maybe it’s time to rejigger the Calculatron 2000… or to perhaps spring for the Calculatron 3000.

That was October becoming the first shot in the battleground that is fall tent pole season. Really, it’s “pup tent” pole season, but still… It was a hell of a weekend at the top of the charts, but also a good weekend for two surprises coming out of the Indie world. With that in mind, we present to you the films that YOU picked to see this weekend.
