All summer, studios have been complaining about Rotten Tomatoes having too much of an influence on moviegoers. Well, this weekend proved that people will see what they want to see, regardless of what critics say. Mostly negative notices didn’t stop the charm offensive from Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson, who teamed up to take “The Hitman’s Bodyguard” to $21.6 million. Sure, it’s not “Deadpool” numbers, but it’s a good showing for the R-rated movie, that’s budgeted at $29 million.

Steven Soderbergh, at this moment, is probably multitasking between half a dozen different projects. The prolific filmmaker doesn’t have any need for a fidget spinner, because if he ever feels antsy, he likely just starts working on something new.

In case you haven’t been paying much attention, the summer 2017 season has been a rather strong one. Sure, we still had to content with the poorly conceived sequel here, but despite “The Emoji Movie” dealing such a ridiculous blow to a slate that, up until this point, had been impressive, ultimately, there were more than enough quality films to find. From “Spider-Man: Homecoming” to “A Ghost Story” to “Wonder Woman,” “War for the Planet of the Apes,” “Baby Driver” and “Dunkirk,” the summer has been one to clamor to the theaters for.
