It’s Memorial Day weekend, and we hope everyone here has awesome plans lined up. Maybe those plans include seeing a movie at the theater… which is looking like a strong possibility based on the projected numbers for The Little Mermaid. 4 new Wide releases come out this holiday weekend and TLM is expected to dominate with a projected $149M over 4 days. Nevermind that the Critics give it a 70% RT score while the “Top Critics” hammered it with only a 47% score, it’ll make bank.

Or maybe you prefer your fun nice and dumb as in The Machine. First Casper Van Dien and now Bert Kreischer… FSU is taking over Hollywood! Go Noles!!

Have a SAFE and FUN holiday!!
