Theaters across the country.
You'd be hard pressed to find -- that's not showing this week and it's given you monster business predictions heard about a hundred million dollars for the weekend.
For a four -- opening -- it's a pretty solid really most of the critics really liked it 80% of the community leaders certified fresh.
I think that is that.

But I would really -- -- love start trying to -- that all the -- -- have a long history with that.
A little disappointing Paramount and director JJ Abrams have made a conscious decision.
