Another fun week has gone by! On the upside, we’re one week closer to Halloween. On the downside, MIDTERMS. So, so many midterms. But hey, there’s no better study break than heading out to the movie theater and catching up on the latest films. Here are the movies that made a splash at the box office:
Brad Pitt stars in yet another World War II movie, only this one isn’t directed by Tarantino and there should be significantly less scalping. However, if you’re interested in watching manly man-bonding in the midst of wartime, this is the film for you. While receiving mixed reviews from critics, Fury earned $23.5 million at the box office last weekend.
- Gone Girl
Remember back in 2012 when everyone was freaking out over the book Gone Girl and you were like, “Yeah, I’ll get around to reading that eventually.” Well, now it’s 2014 and they made a movie and everyone is losing their minds over it again. So if even if you haven’t read it, you should probably check out the movie, which is supposedly pretty amazing. In its third weekend, Gone Girl earned $17.8 million at the box office.
- The Book of Life
Guillermo Del Toro produced this intriguing mythical animated feature about the Mexican tradition of the Day of the Dead. It seems fun, and whimsical, and definitely a good Halloween movie to watch.
Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day came in fourth place at the box office last weekend, and the probably terrible Nicholas Sparks movie The Best of Me was in last place, earning only $10 million. So there are lots of options for you this weekend, if you want to take a break from studying and head to the theaters.
