Looking at the Weekend: Mar. 22-24, 2019

There’s nothing else new coming out this weekend, so Get Out will definitely take the lead. The question is whether it can perform strongly enough to overcome the third weekend of Captain Marvel, which had a solid 55.7% drop from last weekend. With Jordan Peele’s last film taking in $33 million opening, it will be a fight between the two for the number one position and I suspect Us might have the upper hand as Peele’s popularity has only grown in the intervening two years.

Individual Commentary:

Wesley Lovell (WL): With early word being terrific, Jordan Peele is becoming a new must-see director
Peter J. Patrick (PP): Looks interesting, if several notches down from Get Out.
Thomas LaTourette (TL): I do not know if Jordan Peele will be able to recreate the success of “Get Out,” but early reviews are good. I hope it will not be just another slasher movie.

Peter J. Patrick (PP): Timely restaging of real-life terror attack of a decade ago.
Thomas LaTourette (TL): This could be a very good movie based on true events, but the trailer just feels a little off.

Individual Commentary:

Wesley Lovell (WL): The trailer isn’t very impressive, so it’s hard to say if this will be one to see.
Peter J. Patrick (PP): Looks scrumptious, but is probably not something to see on an empty stomach.
Thomas LaTourette (TL): It might be a good movie for foodies, but the trailer does not produce enough excitement to make me really want to see it.

Individual Commentary:

Wesley Lovell (WL): This is a film in desparate need of an exciting trailer as the one that’s out there now doesn’t make this look very interesting.
Peter J. Patrick (PP): Hungary’s submission for last year’s foreign film Oscar looks interesting.
Thomas LaTourette (TL): The critics reviews are all over the place and the trailer does not drum up enough interest, so I am dubious about this film.

Individual Commentary:

Wesley Lovell (WL): A martial arts film with a plot that’s not very intriguing.
Peter J. Patrick (PP): Strictly for fans of Asian martial arts films.
Thomas LaTourette (TL): There is nothing in the trailer except gunshots and martial arts fighting. If that is your cup of tea, have at it, everyone else should stay far away.
