Box Office: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Dominates With $40 Million
The third weekend of horror blockbuster “It” continues to scare up impressive business with a projected $30 million at 4,007 locations, followed by the launch of Warner Bros.’ animated comedy “The Lego Ninjago Movie” with about $21 million at 4,047 locations — well under recent forecasts. Still, with three films over $20 million, the overall box office represents a continued rebound for the movie business following a dismal late summer.
Independent horror movie “Friend Request” is showing little traction in its launch weekend with an estimated $2.2 million at 2,550 venues. Jake Gyllenhaal’s “Stronger,” a biopic on Boston Marathon bombing survivor Jeff Bauman, is opening with a moderate $1.6 million at 574 sites for Roadside Attractions.

Indie auteurs renowned for the originality and craft of their micro-budget horror movies, Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead make the transition from writer-directors to leading men with their ambitious third feature, The Endless.

But prior knowledge of the duo’s previous work is not necessary to savor this rich banquet of mind-bending weirdness.
Already garlanded with prizes and buzzy reviews on the festival circuit, The Endless is shaping up to be a career-making breakthrough for Benson and Moorhead. »

How 'Lego Ninjago Movie' Stacks Up in the Larger Brick Universe
[Warning: This contains spoilers from The Lego Ninjago Movie.]
After a two-year break, the Warner Animation Group doubled down on Lego movies in 2017. The 2014 release The Lego Movie was a breath of fresh air, a goofy and charming story about the dangers of conformity as performed by the minifigures that kids and adults alike have played with for years. Earlier this year, Warner Bros. released a spin-off film, The Lego Batman Movie, anchored by Will Arnett’s outrageously gravel-voiced take on the Caped Crusader that first appeared in the 2014 film. This weekend, Warner Bros. is taking a step »

Also written by Egea, “Desterrados” turns on Cernuda’s first exile and friendship, when he worked as a monitor for Basque Spanish Civil War evacuees in southern England, with one of them, José Sobrino.
