    Variety's take

    http://variety.com/2018/film/box-office/box-office-jumanji-post-paddington-1202662995/

    “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” is outdistancing a quartet of challengers and should win the Martin Luther King Jr. weekend with about $28 million
    “The Post”
    appears to be leading the rest of the pack with around $21 million
    “Paddington 2”
    with $18 million
    “Proud Mary”
    battling “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” for fourth place with about $16 million each
    “The Commuter” was arriving with about $12 million, fighting for sixth with the fourth weekend of Hugh Jackman’s “The Greatest Showman” and the second weekend of “Insidious: The Last Key.”

    PBO filled out completely. If those are 4-day then stupid pedestrian Liddy the Commuter wins the week.

    Those of us who thought Padington 2 would exceed expectations at the box office might have them dashed. :(

    So anyhow, Paddington 2’ is the Fourth Film to Score 100% on Rotten Tomatoes With Over 100 Reviews
    http://www.slashfilm.com/paddington-2-rotten-tomatoes/

    I like Lian Neeson as an actor because he brings class to his roles that other actors might lack. Even in Battleship, his bit part of the uptight father/Admiral was good.

    Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle still doing well shows how much a draw Dwayne Johnson + Jack Black + Karen Gillan + Kevin Hart are.
    Piggy, it passed Justice League in the world wide box office.

    I am thinking horror movies like Insidious: The Last Key do well because they are date movies.

    Hugh Jackman has built up a fanbase over the years and is able to draw them into non-wolverine movies.

    Goddamn Star Wars dropped $600K from the estimates and fucked me out of second place - unless Paddington comes in low, too.

    Liddy wins the week, and Bill Lehecka beat The Resistance without even setting a lineup.

    This fuckin game. I switched up my Monday night lineup on the chance that Tonya had a bigger expansion. Switched back yesterday. Now that looks like the way to go. I'll be last in a 9-way tie.

    I don’t have Tonya and I don’t feel like switching. So you have me beat at least.

    I meant my Monday night lineup looks like it was the way to go all along. Fuck Tonya.

    Oh I see. I don't remember when I set my lineup but I haven't moved off it. It wasn't Monday.

    Edit - Tuesday at 10:30pm

    Did you see they have the standings all fucked up again? I was all excited to think I was in second place, but those knobs have you and Chip tied for first. The rest is out of whack, too.

    We should be since he's basically copying my homework at this point. He joined that stupid resistance league after I did and has just been setting their consensus lineup. They were having a kick ass season until last week. In my defense when I've set their lineup it's been a coincidence. It will be this week too, as I haven't even looked to see what they're doing.

    Edit - yep.

    I didn’t even know you were in that league until I saw a post of yours in chatter last year.

    And I never moved from 4xPaddington last week so I was going to bomb no matter what the Resistance consensus was.

    Because their programmers are utterly fucking incompetent. Nerd dude wrote his own bin packing algorithm in his spare time. Meanwhile, FML can't sort numbers.

    This week is over. Den of Thieves is crushing everything else for the bonus, but it's safely far enough behind Jumanji to keep the 8x lineup from being playable.
