Mile 22 Review 'Just didn’t stick the landing'

#Jumanji Welcome To The Jungle Over Takes #StarWars The Last Jedi

Having had to take second place to Star Wars: The Last Jedi in its first couple of weeks on release, Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle took advantage of a quiet early January weekend to leapfrog into first, earning $36 million according to studio estimates.

That's an impressive feat for the film, which has been scoring well with audiences and earning a solid $244.3 million in the States (and taking in a global total of $519.3 million). And given the film's success so far, that could point to sequel potential, assuming Dwayne Johnson has any time in his schedule within the next decade.

Last Jedi couldn't even settle for second this weekend, also losing out to new horror sequel Insidious: The Last Key. The latest instalment of the scare franchise took in $29.2 million, a good result given its typically thrifty $10 million budget (at least before marketing is taken into account). And it also represents a boost from the third chapter's opening figure. So the most recent Star Wars made do with third place, taking in $23.5 million – though given that the film has already crossed the billion mark worldwide, Disney won't be losing much sleep.

Fourth place was The Greatest Showman, staying in place with $13.8 million, while Pitch Perfect 3 rounded out the top five, earning $10.2 million.

Ferdinand fell a place to sixth, taking in $7.7 million, with Molly's Game expanding its screen count and jumping into the top 10 at 7th on $7 million. Darkest Hour refused to surrender and clung to eighth via a $6.3 million haul, and Coco slipped down the charts to take $5.3 million. Ridley Scott's All The Money In The World still can't seem to catch a break, falling from its seventh place opening spot to 10th and $3.5 million. Not exactly all the money, then: the drama has taken $20.1 million in America thus far.

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…
