Weekend Movie Wrap-Up

So far, 2019 has only proven that the domestic box office is on a consistent decline. In fact, this year the box office has been going downhill for six weekends in a row. But there’s still hope, as big releases like “How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World” and “Captain Marvel” are still on the horizon.

Here’s this weekend’s top 10 movies:

  1. “The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part” – $34.4 million
  2. “What Men Want” – $19 million
  3. “Cold Pursuit” – $10.8 million
  4. “The Upside” – $7.2 million
  5. “Glass” – $6.4 million
  6. “The Prodigy” – $6 million
  7. “Green Book” – $3.7 million
  8. “Aquaman” – $3.3 million
  9. “Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse” – $3 million
  10. “Miss Bala” – $2.7 million

Here’s my picks for this weekend!

My picks for this weekend include:

Alita: Battle Angel, The CGI in this film is amazing, actress Rosa Salazar transforms herself into Alita the cyborg who has to defeat deadly forces to uncover her past. Also starring Jennifer Connelly, Michelle Rodriguez and Casper Van Dien.

Isn’t It Romantic looks absolutely hilarious starring Rebel Wilson, as she plays a leading lady in a real-life romantic comedy in an alternate universe!!!

And, back in theaters due to the popularity of the first one, I didn’t see it, Happy Death Day 2U, a college senior must repeatedly die over and over again to save her friends from a masked killer.


This weekend is filled with romance, food and fun!!!
