Next week is a tough call. Can Will Smith recoup his previous box office losses with his new thriller Focus, or can the television star filled horror flick The Lazarus Effect beat him? Or will Mr. Grey and his 50 Shades make a three-peat? I’ll go out on a limb and say Kingsman will climb and take the number one spot. Tune in to see if I’m right.
Until then, happy movie going!!
