'Elvis', 'Maverick'  Spar the First Weekend to Exceed Pandemic Levels; Marquee Pullman and WV Showtimes,  Flashback: Temple of Doom

SUNDAY UPDATE .... Box Office Pro predicts a tie for first place. Elvis/Maverick each $30.5 million

UPDATED....  For the first time since the pandemic began, four films will gross over $20 million dollars each. This will be the first summer weekend to reflect attendance levels before the virus.

 

ELVIS AND MAVERICK are in a horserace for #1. Blumhouse's Black Phone has broken out. Elvis has grabbed the older audience and will do at least $30 million. DOMINION will go over $26 million. LIGHTYEAR continues under performing. It will take in $18-$20 million. 

 

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom is the flashback.

Blumhouse release, Black Phone, tells of a boy kept captive in a cellar. It's intense. Think of IT but this has  more grubbier visuals. Strong caution for parents on  this one. It scares all ages. And it's drawing strong favorables from critics and audiences a like. 

 BLACKPHONE

A shy but clever 13-year-old boy, is abducted by a sadistic killer and trapped in a soundproof basement where screaming is of little use. When a disconnected phone on the wall begins to ring, he discovers that he can hear the voices of the killer's previous victims.


ELVIS


"Elvis" is Oscar-nominated filmmaker Baz Luhrmann's musical drama about the life and music of Elvis Presley, seen through the prism of his complicated relationship with his enigmatic manager, Colonel Tom Parker. 


MINIONS

A young Gru joins forces with his new Minion friends to take on the supervillain supergroup The Vicious 6.

INDIANA JONES AND THE TEMPLE OF DOOM

This prequel to Raiders, about the search for a mysterious stone in India, is action-packed and more intense than the first film (it helped bring about the creation of the PG-13 rating after its release). Hold on to your seats during the breath-taking bridge collapse and the thrilling mine-cart race! Ke Huy Quan plays Indy’s 11-year-old car-driving sidekick Short Round. (“Okey dokey, Dr. Jones. Hold on to your potatoes!”) Rated
