This Week’s In-Theater Releases
Condorito: La Pelicula
Family is going to rule this weekend at the box office. Paddington 2 will be the Number One film at the box office this weekend. Paddington 2 is a sequel to a successful film and its CGI heroine helps bridge the gulf between the old and the new. There is also the fact that Paddington 2 comes with a built-in fan base – its plethora of readers that adore the Paddington book series.
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle had its moment in the Number One sun last weekend but it will not be strong enough in its fourth weekend at the box office to fend off Paddington 2. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle will be Second this weekend at the box office.
The Commuter will premiere in the Third at the box office this weekend. The Commuter has received mixed reviews but it has two great leads – Liam Neeson and Vera Farmiga – and an interesting premise.
Insidious: The Last Key will be Fourth at the box office this weekend. The last chapter of this horror film series has performed very well at the box office. Insidious: The Last Key looks as though it will continue that trend this weekend.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be Fifth at the box office this weekend. This may be the last weekend in which Star Wars: The Last Jedi is in the Top Five at the box office.
