FIRST LOOK: I Feel Pretty Comes in Third ; "Rampage" , "Quiet Place" Nearly Tie

FIRST LOOK: I Feel Pretty Comes in Third ; "Rampage" , "Quiet Place" Nearly Tie

UPDATED: "A Quiet Place" squeaked to remain in first place at the weekend boxoffice derby. "Rampage" finished second by less than a million dollars. "I Feel Pretty" and "Super Troopers" pulled  off third and fourth place respectively. 

Hold overs "Truth or Dare" and "Ready Player One" nearly tied for the fifth spot. \

Meanwhile, Avengers Infinity Wars continues setting record advance ticket sales prior to its premiere on Thursday evening and opening on Friday. 

***

Avid movie goers have gotten used to choosing from three or four new film choices. The reel mill slows for the rest of April and May. Cinemas are preparing for two staggering nearly guaranteed tentpole releases --- Avengers Infinity Wars (April 26) and Solo A Star Wars Story (May 25) with Deadpool 2 on May 18. 

Isle of Lost Dogs
Isle of Lost Dogs

Studios do not want to counter program against these giants. "I Feel Pretty" had been slated for April 26 but even they backed up a week when faced with the Infinity juggernaut. That has become a wise choice , otherwise, Super Troopers 2, would have had this weekend to its lonesome, since Traffik is a limited wide release. 

(Note: Animated Isle of Dogs playing/opening on select screens, including Marquee Pullman). 

Infinity Wars
Infinity Wars

 

MAY 4:  Bab Samaritan (thriller/horror); Overboard (romantic); Tully (comedy); 

 MAY 11:  Breaking In (thriller); Life of the Party (comedy)

MAY 18: Showdogs (comedy); Book Club; Deadpool 2 (Action).

MAY 25: Avengers Infinity Wars 

One note: It appears that May is front loaded with comedies competing with each other. Somehow , unless I'm wrong, the slate will siphon viewers from each other. With tentpoles upfront, counter programming has a shot, just not all counter programmed comedies. Insert a low budget Blum  somewhere. Maybe run "12 Pole"   for a week? "Bad Samaritan" has a non-supernatural concept, so the genre is nearly wide open until June 8 brings "Hereditary," for scares.

Don't contemplate that some of the older releases will stretch further --- both Infinity and Solo are 3D and multiple auditorium entries --- meaning, the smaller and extended runs will vanish.

"A Quiet Place" may be the exception. The jump all night in your sleep mostly silent survival monster thriller resonates due to its concentration on the ordeal of one family. 

The barefoot tip toeing quietness as they were parkas and gloves at the abandoned small grocer/pharmacy nearly completely spoils my suspension of disbelief. All the sign language and sound suppression stays simple until activities later on. Non-frozen shivering tough footsies has an overlooked option ---- heavy socks (or perhaps ,light, rubber ballet-esque footwear). 

Stretching that a little deeper (spoiler hint), the exterior light footed movements in the forest and on the farm has more super suppression merit than interior movement. Hence, the  visit to an abandoned town in snowy weather minus a warm sock hunt seems utterly foolish. 

Ultimately on these belief suspensions, you can't have it both ways.  Since they are shot dirty feet walking, the town scene should be eliminated. The premise will harken back to native tribes. Few will seriously ponder, duh, why don't their feet freeze? (No scene of in the cottage warming them either.)

An astute viewer readily noted that their "paths" appear well worn and cleared. However, the same individual noted the discrepancy after venturing outside and around the house with one bare and one sock foot. 

Jumping forward, the endurance factor will become more of a significant premise element. 

The dinosaur dung and other entrapment avoiding, by moderate high heel wearing Bryce Dallas Howard in  Jurassic World drew intense attention. She won't wear them in the next installment. Quiet Place 2 needs socks, shoe socks,ballet slippers.... anything but 24/7 barefeet in snowy depths.
