Looking at the Weekend: Jun. 28-30, 2019

With the second weekend of Toy Story 4 likely dominating the box office, it comes down to two new films, one fresh and one an extension. The extension in question is the latest cash grab in the Conjuring and Annabelle universes, bring them both together in Annabelle Comes Home unless audiences have tired of the series, it should put up a strong fight for the second position at the weekend box office. That leaves the newer film, the clever narrative of Yesterday, to fight for third against a slew of holdovers suffering from intense amounts of diminishing returns. That could help bolster its chances, that is if audiences will give it a chance.

Individual Commentary:

Wesley Lovell (WL): The film looks like it might be better than expected, but that it could also be far worse than expected.
Peter J. Patrick (PP): Hamlet from Ophelia’s perspective may be worth a look but it isn’t Shakespeare,
Thomas LaTourette (TL): It starts with an intriguing premise, retelling the story of Hamlet from Ophelia’s perspective, but the trailer feels way too frantic for me to trust it.
