Los Angeles, CA – Sony is hoping to attract more female moviegoers to theaters this weekend with the release of the romantic comedy “Fly Me to the Moon.” The film, directed by Greg Berlanti and starring Scarlett Johansson and Channing Tatum, follows the story of an ad executive who teams up with the U.S. government to create a backup plan for NASA’s 1969 moon landing. Despite facing competition from other films like “Despicable Me 4,” “Fly Me to the Moon” is expected to open strong with positive reviews and a solid following among women over 25.

In addition to “Fly Me to the Moon,” Sony has also secured distribution deals for other upcoming films like “Napoleon” and “Wolfs” from Apple. The studio is looking to generate excitement for these releases with advanced previews and a wide theatrical release.

Meanwhile, “Despicable Me 4” is set to dominate the box office in its second weekend, grossing an estimated $33 million. The film, part of the popular animated franchise, continues to perform well despite facing stiff competition from other movies like “Inside Out 2.”

Another new release this weekend is the horror film “Longlegs,” starring Nicolas Cage and Maika Monroe. With positive reviews and a unique marketing campaign, the film is expected to surprise audiences and perform well at the box office. NEON, the studio behind “Longlegs,” has a track record of success with horror films and is hoping to replicate that success with this latest release.

Overall, the weekend box office is expected to see a mix of new releases and holdovers performing well, catering to a wide range of audiences. With a variety of genres and styles to choose from, moviegoers have plenty of options to enjoy at the theaters.
