Weekend Report, November 18, 2013

Thor probably thought he only had Katniss Everdeen to worry about between now and Christmas. But lo and behold, the mighty Norse God was given a run for his money by the opening of The Best Man Holiday. Fourteen years after the release of The Best Man, this follow up, featuring most of the original cast, arrived in style this past weekend. Free Birds and Last Vegas are still neck and neck (for whatever that's worth), and Bad Grandpa is sticking around to complete the top five.
