Battle for the Box Office (April 18)

Happy Good Friday, Hope everyone have a good Easter Break. These are the movies opening this Holy weekend.

1. Heaven is for real (April 16)

During emergency surgery, a young boy (Colton) slips from consciousness and almost dies. Afterwards he claims that he visited heaven. His family and the members of his small town do not believe him until his stories identify people who have passed away.  This is the perfect movie to see this weekend it opened on Wednesday and made over $3 million. It’s inspiring and uplifting, its based on a book inspired by true events. The trailer looks good and if I’m going to see a movies this weekend, I would definitely see this one.

2. Transcendence (April 18)

A science fiction thriller film about a computer scientist, Evelyn Caster, who uploads her husband Will’s brain into a computer after he has been assassinated by terrorists. Both Evelyn and Will work together to create a technological singularity for creating a world where computers can transcend the abilities of the human brain. I watched all trailer but I’m torn with this movie, I don’t know if I like it or not. Its sound cool but it doesn’t feel original, it centers on computers rebelling on humanity and its been done before. It probably ends with the unplugging Will just joking. It stars Johnny Depp, Rebecca Hall and Morgan Freeman. This movie can go either way but I don’t think it can take the number one spot away from Captain American.

3. A Haunted House 2 (April 18)

Marlon Wayans stars as a man plagued by paranormal events in the sequel spoof. This movie was suppose to be release earlier this year but they moved the date. The date should have moved to never. I just don’t get it, its the same plot with a bigger budget and hopefully better jokes. Mainly its just wrong timing for this movie. But we’ll see how well it does.

Sorry this post is so late.

Last week I was correct with Captain American holding on to the number one spot Transcendence seems like the movie to take that spot but I’m not sure, its going to.

Which movies are you planning to see this weekend? What do you think of Transcendence?

  1. I have hope for Transcendence, because I always love this concept, but from the trailers it looks like just another half-thought out sci-fi movie that everyone will forget by next year…
    But I’ll still probably see it
