Looking at the Weekend: Mar. 8-10, 2019

The number one film for at least two weeks will be Captain Marvel, the latest origin film from the Disney/Marvel universe. There’s little chance that it doesn’t do well, probably topping $100 million on opening weekend. The big question is whether or not the film can top Black Panther, the $700 million (U.S.) juggernaut of last year.

Wesley Lovell (WL): Two Marvel movies breaking barriers in the span of two years. Sounds like fun.
Peter J. Patrick (PP): I’m sure it will be a big hit at the box office, but the more of these comic book adaptations they make, the fewer I want to see.
Thomas LaTourette (TL): This could be a fun addition to the Marvel universe.

Individual Commentary:

Wesley Lovell (WL): While I like some of the cast, it doesn’t look terribly good.
Peter J. Patrick (PP): Low-key tale of Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid from a different angle looks like a tough sell.
Thomas LaTourette (TL): This comes across as much too serious a western.
