Repost: THE COMMUTER MOVIE REVIEW - Double Toasted Reviews





THE COMMUTER MOVIE REVIEW - Double Toasted Reviews - Liam Neeson is back in some old man ass-kickery! We've seen Jackie Chain and Pierce Brosnan go at it in The Foreigner, and we seen an elderly lady take the spotlight in the recent horror movie continuation in Insidious The Last Key, but our reaction may surprise you to this movie that seems to be doing the typical "ridiculous ass B-movie quality storyline with mindless action" template. Is this actually as bad as it seems? Find out in this funny video.

Box Office RESULTS: Star Wars blasts to $745M worldwide, Jumanji opens in second place



Walt Disney Pictures and Lucasfilm‘s Star Wars: The Last Jedi remained in first place domestically with $68.5 million its second weekend (Friday to Sunday), a drop of 69% in ticket sales, to bring its total to $365.1 million through Sunday. It’s expected to earn $100.7 million from Friday through Christmas Day, for a North American total of $397 million. Internationally, The Last Jedi added $75.1 million this weekend and has now grossed $380.3 million, for a global total of $745.4 million through Sunday. The Last Jedi is scheduled to open in China on January 5th.

With the success of Star Wars: The Last Jedi at the worldwide box office, Disney has crossed the $6 billion mark for the second consecutive year, making it the first and only studio to reach this milestone twice (and to have done so in consecutive years). 2017 is now the studio’s second best year ever, passing their 2015 total of $5.845 billion, and one of the biggest in industry history. Disney’s best year remains the industry all-time record of $7.6 billion in 2016. Disney is the only studio to break the $5 billion mark globally in three consecutive years (no other studio has done it in consecutive years).
Star Wars: The Last Jedi was written and directed by Rian Johnson (BrickLooper) and continues the storylines introduced in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, welcoming back cast members Mark Hamill, the late Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Lupita Nyong’o, Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, and Andy Serkis. New cast members include Academy Award winner Benicio Del Toro, Academy Award nominee Laura Dern, and newcomer Kelly Marie Tran.
In second place, Columbia Pictures‘ Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle took in $34 million its first weekend from 3,765 theaters, an average of $9,031 per theater, and has earned $50.6 million through Sunday (the film started playing in theaters last Wednesday). Jumanji is on track for a $64 million domestic total through Christmas Day. Internationally, the film impressed with $49.5 million from 53 territories, bringing the worldwide total to $100.1 million through Sunday. Jumanji‘s upcoming overseas markets include Australia (Dec. 26), Italy (Jan. 1), South Korea (Jan. 3), Brazil (Jan. 4), China (Jan. 12), and Japan (Apr. 6). Directed by Jake Kasdan, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle stars Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan, Nick Jonas, and Bobby Cannavale. The film, which was made for about $90 million, received an A- CinemaScore from audiences.
Third place in North America belonged to Universal Pictures‘ Pitch Perfect 3, which opened to $20.5 million from 3,447 theaters, an average of $7,843 per theater. The studio thinks the third installment will have earned $27 million through Christmas Day. Internationally, Pitch Perfect 3 collected $9.8 million from 14 markets. Receiving an A- CinemaScore, the sequel was directed by Trish Sie and stars Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Hailee Steinfeld, Brittany Snow, Anna Camp, John Lithgow, DJ Khaled, Hana Mae Lee, Ruby Rose, Alexis Knapp, Chrissie Fit, Ester Dean, Shelley Regner, Kelley Jakle, with John Michael Higgins and Elizabeth Banks. It was made for $45 million.
Opening in fourth place was 20th Century Fox‘s The Greatest Showman, starring Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Michelle Williams, Rebecca Ferguson, and Zendaya. The musical debuted to $8.6 million from 3,006 theaters, an average of $2,861 per location. Having opened last Wednesday, the film has earned $13.2 million through Sunday and is expected to sit at $18.2 million through Christmas Day. Internationally, The Greatest Showman brought in $4.1 million from three markets and will open in 60 markets next weekend, including the UK, Australia, Brazil, Mexico, Spain, and Italy. The film, directed by Michael Gracey, received an A CinemaScore and was made for $84 million.
20th Century Fox and Blue Sky Studios’ Ferdinand, based on the book by Munro Leaf and Robert Lawson, rounded out the top five its second weekend with $7 million and has grossed $26.5 million through Sunday (the estimate through Christmas Day is $28.7 million). Overseas, Ferdinand collected $21.5 million from 62 markets to take its international total to $30.6 million, with 21 more markets to come in January. Directed by Carlos Saldanha, the $111 million-budgeted film features the voices of John Cena, Kate McKinnon, Anthony Anderson, Bobby Cannavale, Peyton Manning, Gina Rodriguez, Miguel Angel Silvestre, David Tennant, Flula Borg, Jerrod Carmichael, Daveed Diggs, Gabriel Iglesias, Juanes, Boris Kodjoe, Karla Martínez, and more.

Box Office Recap: 'Coco' Strums Up Second Weekend at #1 While Limited Releases Make a Splash




Disney and Pixar's Coco led the post-Thanksgiving frame in what was a repeat of last weekend's top five thanks in large part to no new wide releases this weekend. That doesn't mean there isn't anything to discuss as A24 enjoyed a great weekend with Lady Bird continuing its strong play and the studio's much-talked about feature The Disaster Artist finished just outside the top ten in its limited bow from just 19 locations. Additionally, Fox Searchlight's The Shape of Water was the weekend's per theater champ after opening in just two locations.
At the top, Coco added an estimated $26.1 million this weekend bringing the film's cume to $108.7 million after 12 days in release. The result is no surprise and the 48.6% second weekend drop is smaller than both of the comps we've been using throughout its release as Moana dropped 50% in its sophomore frame and Tangled dropped 56%. Both films finished their domestic runs over $200 million, which is where Coco is headed.
Coco also added an estimated $69 million internationally this weekend for an overseas total that tops $171 million and a global cume reaching $280 million. New markets this weekend included strong debuts in France, Belgium and Spain along with excellent holdovers where the film actually saw increases over opening weekend. One market where the film saw an increase was China where it posted a $17.8 million opening, which increased 148% this weekend to an estimated $44.2 million. The film's estimated, $75.6 million cume in China makes it the highest grossing Pixar release ever in China and third highest Pixar/Disney release after only Zootopia and Big Hero 6. Coco still has a long road ahead of it with openings in Australia, Italy, Brazil, Korea, UK and Japan to look forward to and it's Japan release isn't until mid-March.
Warner Bros. and DC Comics' Justice League finished in second place with an estimated $16.5 million, dropping 60% after the holiday weekend as the film's cume now stands just above $197 million. Internationally, Justice League grossed an estimated $35.7 million in 66 markets bringing its overseas running cume to $370.1 million for a global cume that tops $567 million.
Lionsgate's Wonder delivered a third place finish with an estimated $12.5 million, pushing the film's domestic cume over $88 million. The film also expanded internationally into 46 markets where it brought in an estimated $7.8 million, pushing its international cume over $12 million for a global tally that tops $100 million.
Thor: Ragnarok continued its climb to $300 million with an estimated $9.7 million this weekend leaving its domestic total at $291.4 million. The film also added another $16.2 million internationally as its global cume now stands at $816.4 million.
Rounding out the top five is Paramount's Daddy's Home 2 with an estimated $7.5 million as the comedy sequel has so far generated $82.8 million. Internationally the film added 25 new markets and brought in an estimated $15.6 million overseas, bringing its international cume to $34 million.
Elsewhere in the top ten, A24's Lady Bird brought in another $1.4 million this weekend as it expanded into 1,194 theaters (+403). The film's cume is now just over $17 million making it the fourth largest domestic release for A24 all-time and it still has a long run ahead of it as it will continue to expand into the holiday season.
A24's impact was felt elsewhere as well. The limited release of The Disaster Artist fell just outside the top ten, as it led the fleet of new limited releases bringing in an impressive $1.2 million from just 19 locations for a $64,254 per theater average. A24 reports exit polling showed sensational word of mouth across the board and they'll be counting on that word of mouth as the film expands into approximately 800 theaters next weekend with continued expansion planned throughout the holidays and awards season.
Fox Searchlight's The Shape of Water was the weekend's per theater champ, bringing in an estimated $166,800 from just two theaters for an average of $83,400 per location. The film will add around 45 new theaters next weekend in 12 new markets and is expected to reach 700-800 locations by the Christmas holiday play period.
And Amazon Studios's Wonder Wheel, the latest film from Woody Allen, opened in five theaters with an estimated $140,555 for $28,111 per location.
This weekend also saw Paramount re-release James Cameron's Titanic for its 20th anniversary. The film played in just 87 theaters where it brought in an estimated $415,000.
