Weekend Box Office Report: ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Reigns Again

There actually was a new film released this week. It's called 'The Identical' and it's a Christian-themed fable about what would have happened if Elvis Presley's stillborn twin brother had survived. Well, for reasons that should be obvious after reading that sentence, 'Guardians of the Galaxy' held onto the number one spot this weekend while 'The Identical' opened outside of the top 10, never to be heard from again.

Kayaker Makes It Over The Upper Peninsula’s Tahquamenon Falls [Video]

I get a lot of flack around here for being from the U.P. It's true, I grew up in a tiny town north of the bridge where our accents are more Canadian than anything and we referred to people who lived down here as "trolls" and "fudgies". I've been here in Grand Rapids for over a decade now though, so I also consider West Michigan to be "home". One of the greatest sites to see in the U.P. is Tahquamenon Falls located in a town aptly named for its beauty, Paradise. I've been to the falls more times in my life than I can count, but I never EVER considered kayaking over them. This guy did though, and it's pretty impressive!

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Rules

A few weeks ago, this column was skeptical that Marvel's 'Guardians of the Galaxy' could reach $300 million. Now, it seems impossible that it won't. Thanks to ecstatic word of mouth, killer marketing and only one genuinely successful box office challenger (that would be 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles'), Marvel's oddball space opera has managed to spend three of the past four weekends at the number one spot at the box office, giving it enough momentum to officially become the highest grossing film of 2014.
