"Moana" set for an estimated $62 Million Weekend Box-Office, "Allied" to open with around $18 Million

"Moana" pulled in $21.8 Million, it looks like Disney has a hit.

I missed the press screenings for the film, I was out of town, but the reviews look great. I will likely make it a double bill on Monday with "Miss Sloane," which is finally being screened here for critics on that day.

The respectable, amiably old-school "Allied" from director Robert Zemeckis made an estimated $4.9 Million on Friday. I really enjoyed the vibe Zemeckis created with this movie, it's not a groundbreaker by any stretch of the imagination, but it's good entertainment. Just lower your expectations a bit and try to give in to its storytelling.

We'll have a clearer picture of the way the weekend tallies will turn out by tomorrow mid-afternoon ....
