Box Office Breakdown: January 6, 2019

What did the Golden Globes tell us?

What are you looking forward to seeing this year? Leave a comment, I’d love to hear from you.

Alright, check it out.

People still have a taste for the dramatic. Even with the assault of Superhero films that take all sorts of genres into a blender of sorts; it appears we all just wanna have a good cry. Or a good laugh. We’re honestly a fickled people. But seriously, this year has been a spectacular year from the cinema. In the Summertime there was The Dead Don’t Die, Midsommar, and The Last Black Man in San Francisco. In the Springtime–Us, Avengers: Endgame, Detective Pikachu, and John Wick Chapter 3. The Fall was even better: Parasite, The Irishman, Joker, Little Women, The Lighthouse and the list goes on and on.

So what are people excited to see in 2020? Well, I’ll have my article up on 5 most anticipated films this year soon, but for now–let’s take a look at what moviegoers are seeing these days:
