"She makes the most distant dreams and ideas a reality", he wrote.

The main cast includes Storm Reid, Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Chris Pine, Levi Miller, Deric McCabe, Zach Galifianakis and Michael Peña. She made a show called "Queen Sugar" and mandated the use of female directors and key creatives a full two years before the great Frances McDormand shared with the world what an inclusion rider was. Two black directors topping the box office is not a common thing in the film industry. As Disney's second movie of 2018, following several weeks after the powerhouse that is Marvel's Black Panther, AWrinkle of Time has earned mixed reception, but it was unclear how the movie would perform commercially. That's just about half what the original The Strangers movie did when released by Rogue Pictures in 2008, and the sequel's "C" CinemaScore does not bode well for its future.

Next was Fox espionage thriller "Red Sparrow", with Jennifer Lawrence as a Russian ballerina-turned-elite spy.

Warner Bros.' third weekend of R-rated comedy "Game Night" finished fifth with $7.9 million at 3,061 locations, declining only 24 per cent to lift its 17-day total to $45 million. Dropping 52% in attendance to $8.1 million, the film was knocked it into the #4 spot. The family-friendly Peter Rabbit finished in the sixth spot with $6.8 million to bring its five-week total to $93.5 million. Both movies opened to $33 million. MGM's second weekend of "Death Wish" followed in seventh with $6.6 million at 2,882 sites to give the Bruce Willis reboot almost $24 million in 10 days. Despite playing on 2,402 screens, Rob Cohen's 'The Hurricane Heist' was rained out with a weak $3.1 million debut ($1,311 per screen).

As far as other specialty releases, IFC Films' The Death of Stalin, directed by Veep creator Armando Ianucci and starring Steve Buscemi and Jeffrey Tambor, took in $181k in four theaters in NY and L.A., an impressive $45k per theater.

Check back later today for an updated report based on actual numbers, and then check back Thursday where Disney will be getting some competition from the new Tomb Raider movie.
