BOX OFFICE BREAKDOWN | A Walk Down Memory Lane

AUGUST 3RD-5TH | What's Coming to Theaters This Weekend

The hot summer days have blurred into August and the hotter films just keep coming.

In Popdust's column, Box Office Breakdown, we aim to inform you of the top flicks to check out every weekend depending on what you're in the mood to enjoy. Looking to laugh? What about having your pants scared off? Maybe you just need a little love? Whatever the case may be, we have you covered. Take a peek at our top picks for this week…

The Darkest Minds

Teenagers suddenly develop a slew of weird abilities, but the government is not feeling it, so they decide to send them away to detention camps. Sounds totally normal given the state of our union. Ruby, however, manages to escape from this camp and joins a group of other runaways. Together, they are going to try and fight the adults and take back the future that is theirs.

The Spy Who Dumped Me

We all have interesting stories about our exes, but not all of them turn out to be spies. That is the case for one of these women, who along with her best friend gets dragged into an international conspiracy that takes them on the run throughout Europe. They might end up dead but hopefully they are having a good time while doing it.

Death of a Nation

Many have been comparing the Trump-era politics to that of the United States during the Civil War. This documentary based on the best-selling book is taking a closer look at exactly that theory, questioning which party in the country could now be considered more racist and whether or not our union can find any peace in the future.
