#Jumanji Welcome To The Jungle Holding On Strong

Even though one of the new competitors was actually named 12 Strong, nothing that arrived at the American box office proved to be as tough as Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle, which continued to see off all comers. The action comedy took in $20 million (a drop of just 28 percent), according to studio estimates.

With $316.9 million in the bank Stateside and a global total of more than $767 million, Jumanji is proving to be a powerhouse, while also benefitting from a seeming lack of worthy competition at this quiet time of year where the focus is on awards films over blockbuster entertainment.

And despite its hoo-rah patriotism about American soldiers on horseback in Afghanistan post-9/11, 12 Strong only managed a second place launch with $16.5 million. Gerard Butler's latest, Den Of Thieves snuck in at third place with $15.3 million.

The Post dropped a couple of places to fourth, earning $12.1 million, while The Greatest Showman rounded out the top five on $11 million.

Paddington 2 continued to get less love than it truly deserved from US audiences, falling one place to sixth and $8.2 million, yet was still strong enough to land above The Commuter, which tumbled from third to seventh, making $6.6 million in the process.

At eighth was Star Wars: The Last Jedi, adding $6.5 million and crossing the $600 million threshold domestically. Insidious: The Last Key was down to ninth via $5.9 million and new romantic drama arrival Forever My Girl limped into the charts with $4.7 million.

Subject-Swiss Army Man
Name & mailing address

Outrageously fun and deeply affecting, Swiss Army Man is a gonzo buddy comedy that is the feature film debut of acclaimed music video directors Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan (collectively known as DANIELS, and responsible for the visionary “Turn Down For What” video, among many others). Bursting with limitless creativity in both form and content, Swiss Army Man goes from the absurd to the emotional to the whimsical to the profound and back again.

Hank (Paul Dano) is stranded on a deserted island, having given up all hope of ever making it home again. But one day everything changes when a corpse named Manny (Daniel Radcliffe) washes up on shore; the two become fast friends…

Movie Review: #MissSloane

The political drama Miss Sloane fails to lobby us into Oscar territory.
Review by Matt Cummings
In a time when women were supposed to be leading our country, Miss Sloane arrives to remind us of what could have been. Unfortunately, this message about a headstrong female Washington lobbyist loses us early with an unappealing director, a paper-thin plot, and suffers from a ton of convenient realism. If the good (but not impressive) performances weren't there to buffer these and many other gaps, we might have found ourselves voting for impeachment.

For Washington lobbyist Elizabeth Sloane (Jessica Chastain), life is about getting her clients what they want from the halls of Congress. Her boss Dupont (Sam Waterston) will sleep with NRA types, fudge travel records, and bully smaller firms into submission if it means a hearty paycheck at day's end. But when Sloane leaves the company to push Gun Control legislation with one of those smaller firms, Dupont turns to his bulldog Co…
