Weekend Box Office

Here are your first numbers of the New Year!

No major movies opened on New Year's Eve. This bodes the traditional start of the January flop season. People are less inclined to spend money on amusement this month, opting instead to try to pay off their credit cards, lose weight, and defend themselves against nature itself, which Garrison Keillor observed "is making a serious effort to kill you." Movies are an afterthought.

In fact, I won't report anything specific this week. This month, watch for movies which look entertaining in trailers but turn out to be horrible, once you actually see them. There'll be lots.
