Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

This weekend saw an impressive and record setting January weekend for the disappointing American Sniper, with a weekend gross of $107 million.  Followed by the overly kid friendly Paddington still able to pick up $25 million, and The Wedding Ringer was only 1 million behind it.  The rest of the field looks much as it did last weekend.  The other new opener this weekend Blackhat qualified as the first bomb of 2015, opening just shy of $4.5 million, with an estimated budget of $70 million.

Opening this week in theatres:

The Boy Next Door

When a handsome, charming teenager named Noah (Ryan Guzman) moves in next door, newly separated high-school teacher Claire Peterson (Jennifer Lopez) encourages his friendship and engages in a little bit of harmless — or so she thinks — flirtation. Although Noah spends much of the time hanging out with Claire’s son, the teen’s attraction to her is palpable. One night, Claire gives in to temptation and lets Noah seduce her — but when she tries to end the relationship, he turns violent.  Director: Rob Cohen


Armed with only his good looks and special charm, an art dealer (Johnny Depp) travels the world to find a stolen painting that is rumored to contain the code to a bank account filled with Nazi gold.   Director: David Koepp

Strange Magic

Goblins, elves, fairies and imps, and their misadventures sparked by the battle over a powerful potion.  Director: Gary Rydstrom
