In October, 2014, a tourist visiting Yellowknife disappeared. Atsumi Yoshikubo seemed like a typical Japanese vacationer, visiting for the majestic creaking pines and the ethereal beauty of the northern lights. Five days after arriving, she walked out of town and into the woods, never to be seen again. Award-winning producer, writer and director Geoff Morrison’s The Missing Tourist delves into the mystery of Yoshikubo’s vanishing. With no signs of criminality, or much hard evidence at all, could Atsumi have traveled all that way just to slip silently out of the world?
That’s the sound of one movie slicing through all the competition this weekend at the box office. How much will this final franchise film make? Here’s our prediction:
Comic book fans have been eager to see Hugh Jackman cut loose as the Wolverine since he first unsheathed his claws back in 2000. 17 years later, Jackman’s final film as Logan, has been generating rave reviews and huge buzz (it must be noted that this will also be Patrick Stewart’s final appearance as Charles Xavier). With director James Mangold at the helm, who was also behind 2013’s The Wolverine, this take on an Old Man Logan story and the introduction of fan favourite character X-23 is sure to light up the box office, even with its R-rating. Look for Logan to debut in first place with $75 million.
