Mickey Mouse - THRU THE MIRROR (1936)
It was the first short animation in which Mickey actually spoke and his first spoken words were "Hot Dogs!".


THIS WEEKEND THE NUMBER ONE FILM REMAINED THE SAME FOR A SECOND WEEKEND. 'VENOM' MAY HAVE NOT ENDEARED THE FILM CRITICS BUT THE AUDIENCE DIDN'T CARE, THE MARVEL ANTI-HERO CAME IN AT NUMBER ONE WITH A TAKE OF $35 MILLION.INTERNATIONALLY,'VENOM' HAS BROUGHT IN $378 MILLION WHICH PRETTY WELL GUARANTEES THAT WE WILL SOON SEE VENOM TAKE ON CARNAGE.


LADY GAGA HELD ON TO SECOND PLACE WITH HER FIRST FILM, 'A STAR IS BORN' WHICH IS THE FOURTH REMAKE OF THIS FILM. IT WAS FIRST MADE IN 1934 WITH JANET GAYNOR AND THEN IN 1954 ATARRING JUDY GARLAND. IN 1976 BARBARA STREISAND TOOK THE LEAD. LADY GAGA IS IN EXCELLENT COMPANY. 'A STAR IS BORN' CAME IN WITH A BOXOFFICE GROSS OF $28 MILLION AND EXCELLENT REVIEWS. THE TOTAL BOXOFFICE TAKE SO FAR SITS AT $97 MILLION.


'FIRST MAN' COMING IN THIRD WAS A VAST DISAPPOINTMENT. ALL SCREENING IN IMAX AT THE TORONTO INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL WERE SOLD OUT AND EVERYONE WAS MORE THAN HAPPY WITH THE FILM. THE $16 MILLION BROUGHT BY 'FIRST MAN' WAS A TERRIBLE DISAPPOINTMENT ESPECIALLY SINCE THIS FILM HAS THE BEST CHANCE OF WINNING BEST PICTURE AT THE OSCARS THIS YEAR. THE STORY OF MAN'S ARRIVAL ON THE MOON DID NOT SEEM TO STRIKE A GOOD NOTE WITH THE YOUNGER AUDIENCE.



The Abominable Dr. Phibes is a 1971 British comedy horror film directed by Robert Fuest, written by William Goldstein and James Whiton, and starring Vincent Price and Joseph Cotten Its art deco sets, dark humour and performance by Price have made the film and its sequel Dr. Phibes Rises Again cult classics. The film also features Terry-Thomas and Hugh Griffith, with an uncredited Caroline Munro appearing in still photographs as Phibes's wife. The film follows the title character, Phibes, who blames the medical team that attended to his wife for her death four years prior and sets out to exact vengeance on each one. Phibes is inspired in his murderous spree by the Ten Plagues of Egypt from the Old Testament.

THIS WEEKEND Venom had a reasonable hold to stay at the top of the charts this weekend while a bunch of new releases performed somewhere between middling and mediocre.

Critics may have savaged it but paying audiences continue to enjoy Venom as the Marvel anti-hero fell a reasonable (for a comic book property) 55% in its second weekend to an estimated $35.7M bringing its cume up to $142.8M. Internationally it added an estimated $69.7M to bring its overseas cume to $235.3M for a worldwide total of an impressive $378.1M.

In second for a second straight weekend was the critically acclaimed A Star is Born which had the best hold in the top 10 falling a slim 34.7% to an estimated $28M bringing its total to $97M. When audiences and critics both love a film, Oscar usually comes knocking.

Opening with less than desirable numbers was the latest from Oscar-winning director Damien Chazelle, First Man. The story of the race to put a man on the moon took in an estimated $16.5M from 3,640 theaters for a per screen average of $4,533. Critics loved the film as it sits at 88% positive on Rotten Tomatoes but audiences didn't give it the same love as A Star is Born as it sits at a B+ CinemaScore (compared to the A grade for A Star is Born). The film barely finished above...

Goosebumps 2 which opened to an estimated $16.2M from 3,521 theaters for a per screen average of $4,608. Critics and fans both didn't care for the film yet it almost toppled a film that was expected to get serious Oscar buzz. Will there be a third film to close out the trilogy? Only time will tell.

In fifth place, the animated Smallfoot fell a decent 35% in its third weekend to an estimated $9.3M bringing its total up to $57.6M. The comedy Night School took in $8M, according to estimates, bringing its cume up to $59.8M also after three weekends.

The final debut in the top 10 was in seventh with Bad Times at the El Royale which opened in 2,808 theaters to an estimated $7.2M for a per screen average of only $2,573. Critics were on the positive side of mixed while audiences only gave it a B- CinemaScore which means it won't last too long.

Jack Black returns for a second top 10 appearance with The House With a Clock in Its Walls which took in just under $4M this weekend, according to estimates, bringing its total up to $62.2M after a month.

Adding 212 screens this weekend and jumping into ninth place was The Hate U Give which added an estimated $1.76M bringing its cume up to $2.47M. Currently it sits at an amazing 97% positive on Rotten Tomatoes. Next weekend will determine its fate as it expands into over 2,000 theaters nationwide.

Rounding out the top 10 was the thriller A Simple Favor which added an additional $1.4M this weekend, according to estimates, bringing its total up to $52M after five weeks.

The top ten films grossed an estimated $128.1M which was up 44% from last year when Happy Death Day debuted at number one with $26M; and up 51% from 2016 when The Accountant opened in the top spot with $24.7M.
