Six hours after advance tickets went on sale for Avengers: Infinity Wars, it had surpassed the former leader, Black Panther, in advance ticket sales. Specific sales data has not yet been released.

Can "Black Panther" do it again, meaning finish on top of the Boxoffice for a fifth consecutive week. It has not been achieved since "Avatar." 

Contending to dethrone the Panther, "Tomb Raider," a reboot of the "Lara Croft" video game inspired franchise. Alicia Vikander, known for Tulip Fever, Submergence and Light Between Oceans, takes the role that beautiful and brainy Angelina Jolie made famous in 2001 and the 2003 sequel. At the time, fans fumed that Jolie didn't fit Croft's gaming physical attributes nor was she British. 

The remake comes at a time when female heros are sizzling from the 2017 success of "Wonder Woman." One critic said "Tomb Raider" is a "perfectly placed trio of espresso shots" with adrenaline added "to the heart as a chaser." 

Vikander has been complemented as "aa tough appealing action star," but the script fails (like the game) to explore her personality. 

Action crackles in "7 Days in Entebbe" which contains "white knuckle" scenes. Interestingly, modern dance scenes are cut back and forth (do I remember Soprano ?) . Here, a commando's girl friend performs while the rescue team preps a tactical assault. 

FIRST LOOK:  7 Days, Tomb Raider, I Can Only  Imagine

"Love Simon" has gathered good response as a romantic comedy. This time its a teen dude's ordeal  "coming out" as gay, which has generated heartfelt reaction. 

Pacific Rim Uprising, Unsane and Morning Sun are on tap for next week. 

FLASHBACK: Sunset Boulevard stars Gloria Swanson as a faded movie queen facing unwanted retirement from name in lights. It' Sunday and Wednesday at 3:30 and 7:00 p.m. and includes commentary from Turner Classic Movies.

NEW THIS WEEK

7 DAYS IN ENTEBBE 

A gripping thriller inspired by the true events of the 1976 hijacking of an Air France flight en route from Tel Aviv to Paris, the film depicts the most daring rescue mission ever attempted

 

TOMB RAIDER

FIRST LOOK:  7 Days, Tomb Raider, I Can Only  Imagine

Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was scarcely a teen. Now a young woman of 21 without any real focus or purpose, Lara navigates the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier. Determined to forge her own path, she refuses to take the reins of her father's global empire just as staunchly as she rejects the idea that he's truly gone. Going explicitly against his final wishes, she leaves everything behind in search of her dad's last-known destination: a fabled tomb on a mythical island that might be somewhere off the coast of Japan. Suddenly, the stakes couldn't be higher for Lara must learn to push herself beyond her limits as she journeys into the unknown.

I CAN ONLY IMAGINE

FIRST LOOK:  7 Days, Tomb Raider, I Can Only  Imagine

Based on the incredible true-life story that inspired the beloved, chart-topping song, I Can Only Imagine is a song that brings ultimate hope to so many - often in the midst of life's most challenging moments. Amazingly, the song was written in mere minutes by MercyMe lead singer Bart Millard. In reality, those lyrics took a lifetime to craft.

LOVE SIMON

FIRST LOOK:  7 Days, Tomb Raider, I Can Only  Imagine

Everyone deserves a great love story. But for seventeen-year old Simon Spier it's a little more complicated: he's yet to tell his family or friends he's gay and he doesn't actually know the identity of the anonymous classmate he's fallen for online. Resolving both issues proves hilarious, terrifying and life-changing. Directed by Greg Berlanti (Riverdale, The Flash, Supergirl), written by Isaac Aptaker & Elizabeth Berger (This is Us), and based on Becky Albertalli's acclaimed novel, LOVE, SIMON is a funny and heartfelt coming-of-age story about the thrilling ride of finding yourself and falling in love.

 

FLASHBACK CINEMA

SUNSET BOULEVARD - Fathom Events, Turner Classic Movies and Paramount Pictures are bringing Sunset Boulevard to select cinemas nationwide for a special two-day event, which includes specially produced commentary from Turner Classic Movies. Gloria Swanson, as aging silent-film queen, and William Holden, as the struggling young screenwriter who is held in thrall by her madness, created two of the screen's most memorable characters in "Sunset Boulevard." From the unforgettable opening sequence through the inevitable unfolding of tragic destiny, "Sunset Boulevard" is the definitive statement on the dark and desperate side of Hollywood.
