Opening in Connecticut – Weekend of 2/16/18

Standard

Black Panther – It’s a phenomenon and (for the most part) deservedly so. It’s already the fourth biggest opening of all time and it’s just getting started. Top ten domestic is in play.
Rotten Tomatoes: 97% Metacritic: 88%
Personal interest factor: 9

Early ManCaveman comedy from Director Nick Park. I respect Aardman productions (even if their films are typically not for me) but at a certain point distributors are going to have to accept that they’re better suited as streaming releases domestically. With a three-day cume of just 3.1M, Early Man has earned a place on the 100 worst opening weekend per theater averages of all time.
Rotten Tomatoes: 81% Metacritic: 68%
Personal interest factor: 3

Samson – Bible story told in the style 300 popularized a dozen years ago, but made by people with no talent for creating striking visuals. Looks like it cost less than your average car commercial. Also: Billy Zane.
Rotten Tomatoes: 27%, Metacritic: 17%
Personal interest level: -10
