Weekend Box Office: Pixels Plays Second To Ant-man's Second Weekend As Player One
Eighties video game nostalgia isn't as powerful as Sony/Columbia probably hoped. The Adam Sandler action comedy Pixels may have given last weekend's top earner Ant-man a run for the number one spot this week, but it's not much to get excited about when the new movie couldn't break $25 million.
