#BOXOFFICE: “CINDERELLA” IS BELLE OF THE BALL AT BOX OFFICE IN DEBUT
CINDERELLA is Queen of the Ball at the Box Office this weekend! Disney‘s Live-Action Adaptation of their 1950 Animated Classic debuts right at the top with a stellar $70 million from 3,485 theatres! Made for $95 million, it in no time should recoup its production costs. Starring fresh-faced Lily James and Oscar Winner Cate Blanchett, the Fantasy got a stellar 86% from Critics on the Tomatometer, while Audiences praised it in unison with an A CinemaScore.
Although a distant second, Warner Bros.‘ Action RUN ALL NIGHT starring Liam Neeson and Joel Kinnaman, opens in second with $11.3 million in its debut from 3,171 theatres. Reviews were mixed at 59% on the Tomatometer, but Audiences loved it with an A- CinemaScore, which could help its second week numbers.
KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE continues to show great staying power in third with $6.2 million for 20th Century Fox. The Film now is in its fifth week.
THE SECOND BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL lands in fourth in its second week out with $5.8 million for Fox Searchlight. The Film in North America has grossed $18.2 million thus far.
CHAPPIE slips to sixth in its second week after a debut atop a tepid Box Office last weekend. It earns $5.4 million for Sony Pictures, a two-week gross of $23.2 million.
FIFTY SHADES OF GREY is in ninth this week with $3 million for Universal Pictures, earning a cumulative $161 million thus far domestically.
THE DUFF rounds-out the Top Ten for CBS Films/eOne Films with $2.9 million in its fourth week out.
#FIRSTLOOK: “RUN ALL NIGHT” TRAILER STARRING ED HARRIS, JOEL KINNAMAN + LIAM NEESON
Hot on the success of his Box Office domination this weekend, Liam Neeson stars in yet another high-octane Action-Thriller, RUN ALL NIGHT, its new Trailer just getting released this past weekend.
Brooklyn mobster and prolific hit man Jimmy Conlon (Liam Neeson), once known as The Gravedigger, has seen better days. Longtime best friend of mob boss Shawn Maguire (Ed Harris), Jimmy, now 55, is haunted by the sins of his past—as well as a dogged police detective (Vincent D’Onofrio) who’s been one step behind Jimmy for 30 years. Lately, it seems Jimmy’s only solace can be found at the bottom of a whiskey glass.
But when Jimmy’s estranged son, Mike (Joel Kinnaman), becomes a target, Jimmy must make a choice between the crime family he chose and the real family he abandoned long ago. With Mike on the run, Jimmy’s only penance for his past mistakes may be to keep his son from the same fate Jimmy is certain he’ll face himself…at the wrong end of a gun. Now, with nowhere safe to turn, Jimmy just has one night to figure out exactly where his loyalties lie and to see if he can finally make things right.
