Cold Winter Nights, Hot Movie Weekends

Following their first “aMAZEing” weekend out to play, can THE MAZE RUNNER: THE DEATH CIRCLE, continue to kill the competition with his fast moves? Might JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE soon be getting kicked out of the most successful cinematic circles? THE GREATEST SHOWMAN is still on hand, offering eclectic entertainment. How much longer can all that greatness last? Might the HOSTILES prove too great to beat?
Maybe newbie WINCHESTER has the heat to take them all! Of course, we can’t count out those 12 STRONG men and their survival skills. Maybe they’ve got the strength to make the ultimate comeback.
Whatever happens, we can count on THE POST being there to cover all the hot news in the cold weeks to come.
Where will you be this chilly weekend?

One AMAZEing Weekend

MAZE RUNNER: THE DEATH CURE sent the competition circling as they ran straight to the top of the box office, waving a cheery hello to previous champ JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE, who, despite their relocation, was still feeling right at home. The HOSTILES, despite their name, seemed happy to be invited to the cinematic show, leading the way for THE GREATEST SHOWMAN, who continued to provide one great show. THE POST was naturally there covering all the action while remaining a successful part of it all.
Audiences were discovered running in the most entertaining circles this weekend, the jungle game played on; the news covered the greatest shows and the strongest characters, all playing out in your local movie theater.

A Cure for the Winter Blues

Zipping through winter, the MAZE RUNNER: THE DEATH CURE seeks to revitalize the box office this weekend. Does he have what it takes to cure what ails us? Do the answers to our winter blues lie within THE POST? Perhaps 12 STRONG men are what is needed to lift us out of the doldrums. Of course, THE GREATEST SHOWMAN is sure to put a smile on our faces and a spring in our cinematic step.
PADDINGTON 2 is also stepping up and out this weekend, hoping to attract audiences with his family-friendly charm. Can he out charm the unique cast within JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE? Are those characters all played out? Might a DEN OF THIEVES be raiding our playful movie theaters once again?
Who will be playing the most entertainingly this weekend?

Strength was Found in our Movie Jungle

The biggest greeting was once again meeting JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE, who found the natives friendly. 12 STRONG men were making friends on their heroic journey while a DEN OF THIEVES did their part to steal the show. THE POST was still making newsworthy friends in their lofty position but graciously left plenty of space for THE GREATEST SHOWMAN, who, naturally, was surrounded by the greatest stars, all adding warmth and coziness to a cold winter’s night.
The hottest scene stealers in the most imaginative places warmed up our long winter nights, Hanks and Streep followed after our strong soldiers, taking the coolest notes, the jungle was jumping and one great showman directed one entertaining show!
Who stole the show for you this weekend?

Estimated Domestic Box Office Results:
1. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle $20 million.
2. 12 Strong $16.5 million.
3. Den of Thieves $15.3 million.
4. The Post $12.2 million.
5. The Greatest Showman $11 million.

The Strength lies in our Stars

Colliding with some tough competition, can 12 STRONG soldiers win the battle at the box office this weekend? How warm a greeting will JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE bestow upon them? Can THE POST handle the task of educating the movie masses or will they be swayed by the (non-political) talent that surrounds THE GREATEST SHOWMAN? Still on the family front, FOREVER MY GIRL promises to be eternally adorable. Who will delight us the most?
Perhaps THE LEISURE SEEKER will provide us with the sweet serenity we seek. Not if PROUD (and most definitely NOT sweet) MARY has anything to say about it, who finds murder beats recreation. Can a DEN OF THIEVES be the ultimate scene stealers?
Of course, THE COMMUTER may know the way to the most scenic places while INSIDIOUS: THE LAST KEY certainly holds the key to all things horrifying.
Then again, maybe the always-scenic STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI will make a comeback and send them all packing.
So many stars, so little movie time!
What might this jam packed weekend hold for you?

A Politically Correct Weekend

JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE remained the most hospitable place to visit this long weekend, once again finding the top spot at the domestic box office the most welcoming place in our movie universe. Universally speaking, moviegoers found THE POST up to the task of entertaining and enlightening them. THE COMMUTER was on the right track while INSIDIOUS: THE LAST KEY continued to open the creepiest doors. Bringing up the rear, THE GREATEST SHOWMAN was still showin’ em how it’s done, getting the final word on all things stars.
The stars were proudly represented this Martin Luther King weekend, stepping out in politically-correct style. Hanks and Hart strangely crossed paths, we commuted to the most intriguing places, horror was hitting the right beat and the greatest show illuminated the coolest stars.
Which of our illuminating tales made the weekend great for you?
Estimated Domestic Box Office Results:
1. JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE $27 million.
2. THE POST $18.6 million.
3. THE COMMUTER $13.5 million.
4. INSIDIOUS: THE LAST KEY $12.1 million.
5. THE GREATEST SHOWMAN $11.8 million.

Warming up Winter’s Movie Hearts

With winter in full frosty blast in so many of our regions, what will it take to warm our cold movie hearts? THE COMMUTER is sure to find the hottest spots on his way home. Will audiences be along for that ride?
Will a pit stop through JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE bring the heat? Might the celestial beings revolving around STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI be the first to make us feel the warmth that only true stars can inspire? Perhaps THE GREATEST SHOWMAN can provide us with a cozy feeling only music (within the movies) can bring (with a sweet assist from those soulful PITCH PERFECT 3 ladies).
Perchance lovable PADDINGTON 2 will offer the greatest show, one sure to warm even the coldest cinematic souls.
No worries for those aforementioned cold souls, however, who are sure to feel right at home thanks to INSIDIOUS: THE LAST KEY, which is destined to open the deadliest doors.
Behind which door will you find the warmest welcome this weekend?
