We have now entered the lull of the summer where no new Wide release is expected to pull in more than $4M. Of the two new movies this weekend, only the horror-comedy Bodies Bodies Bodies is expected to make something of significance. It certainly has appeal, it seems, as RT shows a 90% critic rating. The Critic Consensus says: “Impeccably cast and smartly written, Bodies Bodies Bodies is an uncommonly well-done whodunit.” I’m rooting for Pete Davidson to be the first to go 🙂

A weekend like this could mean small weekend drops across the board. DC Pets needs all the help it can get!

1) Bullet Train – 13.1M (53.8M)
