DOLITTLE Movie Review 'Truly a disaster'

#ThorRagnarok On Top For The Second Weekend

This weekend at the US box office saw comedy sequel Daddy's Home 2 and Kenneth Branagh's version of Murder On The Orient Express challenging champ Thor: Ragnarok for the top spot. Neither of the new arrivals managed the job, as the latest Marvel offering stayed in place, earning $56.6 million according to studio estimates.

The third outing for the Asgardian has now earned $211.5 million in the US and has roared past $650 million worldwide after just a little more than a week on release. It's another success story for the MCU, and it remains to be seen if Justice League can steal its thunder this coming weekend.

Daddy's Home 2 made $30 million, which is a slight drop from the original, which launched with $38.7 million in 2015. And Murder earned $28.2 million despite an all-star cast led by the director.

A Bad Moms Christmas saw its comedy market cut by the new arrival, and dropped to fourth with $11.5 million. Rounding out the top five we have Jigsaw on $3.4 million.

Sixth was Tyler Perry's Boo 2! A Madea Halloween, which took in $2 million, while Geostorm slipped a couple of places and made $1.5 million. Blade Runner 2049 – which now appears on course to lose money for production company Alcon – fell to eighth and $1.4 million. Horror comedy Happy Death Day was down to ninth, finding $1.3 million after five weeks on release. With that $5 million budget, its American haul of $54.9 million represents a nice profit. Finally, Greta Gerwig's directorial debut, Lady Bird, added screens and snuck into the top 10 with $1.2 million.

Robert Downey Jr. electrifies one of literature's most enduring characters in a vivid reimagining of the classic tale of the man who could talk to animals: Dolittle.

After losing his wife seven years earlier, the eccentric Dr. John Dolittle (Downey), famed doctor and veterinarian of Queen Victoria's England, hermits himself away behind the high walls of Dolittle Manor with only his menagerie of exotic animals for company.

We All Played It. 'McMILLION$' Examines The $24 million-dollar McDonald’s Monopoly Game Fraud

This six-part documentary series examines the $24 million-dollar McDonald’s Monopoly game fraud, chasing the mysterious mastermind behind the scam and the intrepid and dedicated team of FBI agents on his trail.
