BOX OFFICE BREAKDOWN | Women are taking over the heist game

JUNE 8TH-10TH | What's Coming to Theaters this Weekend?

A documentary, a horror picture, and some girl power are available for your enjoyment this weekend.

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…


After a woman passes away, her family soon begins to unravel hidden secrets about her life. This might make you think twice before leaving an inheritance to...well...anyone. Among this information is unsettling information regarding the ancestral lines of the family. It might not be anything as wholesome as they once thought. In fact, it might even come with some scary consequences they are all doomed to face. The family members must now decipher whether or not there is a way to stop their miserable fates, or perhaps the old saying is true: you can't choose your family (or the skeletons in their closets).

Hearts Beat Loud

We loved this film from the first time we saw it at Sundance, and we're so glad all of you can see it now, too. It tells the story of a man and his daughter who are dealing with the usual struggles of growing up and growing apart. But one way the father comes up with to prevent this from happening is by starting a band together. This sounds perfectly ridiculous, sure, until their single gets onto one of the best new indie music playlists on Spotify. Then the plan becomes interesting. If only it were so simple to become famous.

Won't You Be My Neighbor?

Another film festival darling, this documentary won't only teach you something, it will also bring a few tears to your eyes. It tells the story of Mr. Rogers, beloved star of the classic children's television show. But he was far more than simply the face behind a program teaching you how to be kind to your peers. He also lobbied for important causes related to children's education, and left an enormous legacy behind. Break out your cardigan and be sure to stuff the pockets with tissues.

Hotel Artemis

Welcome to another terrifying portrayal of what our lives will be like in the not too distant future. Rioting has broken out in downtown Los Angeles and a group of thieves are heading straight for Hotel Artemis, which is not a place to spend the night unless you're looking for boutique accommodations for hospitalized criminals. The nurse who operates this place is overwhelmed when three top criminals all check in at the same time. The violence continues throughout the evening, and this nurse will be faced with some very serious choices.
