This week's rankings are exactly the same as last weeks. That's kind of cool, if you are Kurtis and Rob. I'm not saying "being them" is cool. It's just cool to hold the box office for this long.

Peter Jackson is atr it again with a grandiose fantasy film about moving cities. Think "Howl's Moving Castle", but less whimsy and more emo. If you are down with that, you will also have to swallow the "chosen one" trope that oozes out of this release. Still here? The visuals should be enough to tide you over. I will give credit where it is due; this is an original property. We can't complain about no new stories being told and then scoff when they are. $27M?
Sony Imageworks in Vancouver has been working on "Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse" for a very long time. The last "Hotel Transylvania" was, I am certain, made to help bankroll Spiderman. We're not in a situation where "everything is at stake". It's a technically impressive animated original Spiderman movie that looks fun. Welcome the new number one kid in town, gang. $31 for good measure. I regret estimating "Mortal Engines" as high as I did. No take-backs!
