Weekend Box Office: January 27, 2017

Split came out on top last weekend with $40 million. At least Hidden Figures has an Oscar nom?

Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side Of Dimensions brings Millenials’ favorite anime to the big screen…for the third time.

Gold stars Matthew McConaughey as a broke businessman who buys a gold mine in the 1980s, gets rich as hell, and probably loses “everything.” Based on the life of Canadian businessman, David Walsh.

The Daughter is about a young woman whose life crumbles when her father’s friend informs him that her biological father is someone else entirely. Good to see that Paul Schneider is playing jerks again?

I Am Michael stars James Franco as Michael Glatze, a gay activist who decides to be straight and become a pastor. Emma Roberts is his deeply Christian wife and Zachary Quinto is his ex-boyfriend.

Buddies in India is a Chinese/Indiana action comedy.

Kung-Fu Yoga stars Jackie Chan as a “renowned archaeology professor” in pursuit of ancient Indian treasure.

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter is the supposed final film in a series that shouldn’t have been made?

Un Padre No Tan Padre is about a man taken in by his son after he is kicked out of his nursing home.

A Dog’s Purpose is an emotionally manipulative drama (being boycotted by PETA!) about a dog reincarnated over the decades so that he may bring hope back to his first owner. Or something. Somehow Dennis Quaid agreed to this.

Confidential Assignment is a Korean action film.

Staying Vertical is a very French film about a filmmaker who must raise his child alone while working on his film.

The Salesman is the latest drama from Asghar Farhadi (About Elly, A Separation), who tells the store of a man who seeks revenge against a man who assaulted his wife.
