Looking at the Weekend: Jul. 26-28, 2019

Although The Lion King will be taking its second weekend at the top of the box office, Quentin Tarantino’s latest film will be making a play for the top spot. Yet, it will be impossible for him to take the top spot from Disney’s “live-action” adaptation. Tarantino has never pulled in more than $38 million for the opening weekend of one of his films. The Lion King would have to have an uncharacteristic precipitous drop to make less than that in its second weekend. Still, Tarainto’s film is the only wide release and a second-place finish is all but certain.

Wesley Lovell (WL): The trailer wasn’t as funny as it wanted to be.
Peter J. Patrick (PP): Looks a bit confusing, but it’s already won numerous festival awards so it may be worth a look.
Thomas LaTourette (TL): The trailer tries too hard to be funny without really succeeding which makes me wonder about the whole film.
