The Cabal is back, and with the Tesseract in their hands they are nearly unstoppable. When the Falcon is taken down in battle with the villains, Iron Man steps down as leader, blaming himself. Can the Avengers defeat The Cabal without Iron Man? Meet me after the jump for my review of “Exodus.”
In a showing that surprised all us pundits, Godzilla had a huge opening weekend, bringing in $93 million. Clearly, the trailers helped sell this ones to audiences, while reviews have been overall kind, hopefully wiping out the memory of the 1998 disaster. The film is only going to have one week on top of the box office, sop hopefully the King of the Monsters will enjoy the brief reign.
As for the rest of the top five, Neighbors dropped just 47% to land at number two with $26 million. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 continues its free fall, bringing in $16.8 million to claim the third spot. Million Dollar Arm debut in fourth place with $10.5 million, while The Other Woman closed things out in fifth with $6.3 million.
So, to recap, here were our predictions:
1) Godzilla – $75 million
2) Neighbors – $25 million
3) The Amazing Spider-Man 2 – $17 million
4) Million Dollar Arm – $16 million
5) The Other Woman – $5 million
And here’s how the weekend turned out:
1) Godzilla – $93 million
2) Neighbors – $26 million
3) The Amazing Spider-Man 2 – $16.8 million
4) Million Dollar Arm – $10.5 million
5) The Other Woman – $6.3 million
Next weekend sees the release of the highly anticpated X-Men
Don’t let the title throw you off. It speaks volumes. How much of our body belongs to us? Can someone lay claim to our cells without our consent? Don’t think so, then you should read Rebecca Skloot’s book “The Immortal life of Henrietta Lacks.” Henrietta’s cells were not only taken without her knowledge or consent, but used for cloning and gene mapping worth millions of dollars. Knowledge itself is power. Helena is aware that Henrik took something from her. Will this knowledge help our clones in their quest to find the truth? Check your HeLa cells at the door before entering.
