"Insidious: Key-fingers" earned more money than "The Last Jedi" did this weekend. Oh how the mighty have fallen. Who cares how much money. The tid-bit is all we need to know.

I can't explain why, but "Paddington 2" is getting some positive buzz. I think it's just the idea of a British teddy-bear doing adorable and wholesome things. Things like tear a human beings insides out with his murderous teeth in a fit of unrelenting rage. That, or quipping about the curios in London during a bright sunny day. I don't know. I haven't seen it. $22M.
This winter, watch what happens when a sexy assassin crosses paths with an unassuming young boy. This movie is sure to be a "hit". Critics are saying: "By definition, this is indeed a movie." and "Has anyone seen my fallen contact lens?". $14M.
"The Commuter". Wow. Talk about a bad day getting to work, right? The likelihood any of us would have of an adventure on the bus or skytrain would be a homeless person who snuck on asking for a dry hand-job. Where's that movie? I'd call it "The Task". "The Job" is already taken. Maybe just "Hands". That sounds mysterious and interesting. $16M.
