All eyes may be on Damien Chazelle’s La La Land, Barry Jenkins’ Moonlight, Kenneth Lonergan’s Manchester by the Sea, or any of the other Oscar darlings, but 2016 offered a lot of other great movies.

Kubo and the Two Strings
This past weekend, Kubo and the Two Strings failed to make an impressive debut despite positive reviews across the board (including from our own Trevor Jeffery). According to Box Office Mojo, the $60-million production opened with $12,610,000 along with an existing foreign gross of $900,000.
Possible alternate title: Kubo the One-Eyed Rock & Roll Samurai Wizard.
