Right on Dolittle’s heels was last week’s top film, 1917, which took in $22.1 million and now boasts a four-week total of $76.8 million. Meanwhile, Jumanji: The Next Level dropped to fourth place with a $9.6 million over the weekend, which now gives the film a six-week total of $270.5 million. Falling all the way to fifth place from second last week was Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker as it added $8.4 million to give it a five-week total of $492.0 million.

Will Arnett’s 10 Best Movies (According To Rotten Tomatoes)

Though Will Arnett is perhaps best known for starring as the titular character of the Netflix animation BoJack Horseman and Gob Bluth in the cult-followed comedy Arrested Development, his resume also includes major and minor roles in a variety of theatrical features. Due to this (and his continued acting work), we thought it was time to look at his best movies.

Box-Office Weekend: 1917 Unseats Star Wars

Apparently a fourth week on top of the box-office weekend wasn’t in the cards for Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker as the film was bested by the new film from director Sam Mendes, 1917. The war epic enjoyed a first weekend in wide-release by claiming first place over the weekend and a $36.5 million weekend gross.

Though The Rise of Skywalker lost the top spot this weekend, it did manage to finish in second place and add another $15.1 million, giving it a four-week tally of $478.2 million. Similarly dropping one spot this weekend was Jumanji: The Next Level, which took third place with $14.0 million. The sequel now claims a five-week total of $257.1 million.

The second newcomer to the top ten this past weekend was the comedy Like a Boss, which debuted in fourth place earning $10.0 million. Tied with that was the courtroom drama Just Mercy which finished in fifth,

Movie Review: Like a Boss

Despite sporting a pedigree of talented people involved in the project, the new comedy, Like a Boss, fails to deliver much of anything in the way of laughs, let alone any real entertainment value for your dollar. The film is consistently mired in a morass of overused comedic clichés and a lifeless plot that never gains the momentum it needs to carry the film from one flimsy comedy bit to the next.

Like a Boss follows best friends Mia and Mel (Tiffany Haddish and Rose Byrne respectively) who not only run the cosmetics company they’ve built together, but also cohabitate in a home that Mia inherited from her mother. Simply put, they are best friends. They’ve been together through thick and thin and seem to share a bond between them that transcends most traditional friendships. But, soon after they and their company are introduced, Mia and Mel run

‘1917’ Triumphs at the Box Office With $37 Million, and Much More To Come

  • Indiewire
‘1917’ Triumphs at the Box Office With $37 Million, and Much More To Come
Some good news this weekend: The early 2020 small uptick in grosses continued, with total ticket sales totaling around $130 million. (The second weekend of 2019 saw $120 million.) And leading the charge was Sam Mendes’ innovative “1917.” At $36.5 million, it more than doubled #2 “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” for an easy #1 placement.

The three-day period saw four new and expanding wide studio releases, compared with two in 2019 — “The Upside” and “A Dog’s Way Home,” along with the independent “Replicas” which only roused $2.3 million. That means the biggest reason for the jump is more new titles rather than suggesting a major box-office resurrection.

The big question this year is whether original titles can continue to perform like “The Upside,” “Hustlers,” and “Knives Out.” “1917” is showing initial strength that should push it to those levels, or higher. But the other three new wide releases all look like they will fall short of $50 million domestic to some degree.

1917 Wins the Weekend Box Office with $36.5M
Sam Mendes' 1917/">1917 is the box office champion this weekend. The World War I drama was easily able to end The Rise of Skywalker's box office reign. The box office success comes after some key wins at the Golden Globe Awards last weekend, including best motion picture for a drama and best director. However, the movie has also received a lot of positive word of mouth advertising, thanks to its limited run preceding the wide release. As of this writing, 1917 has earned over $60.4 million globally.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker fell to the second position this weekend after bringing in $15 million. The final installment in the Skywalker Saga held the number one spot for nearly a month and is well on its way to earning over $1 billion. The sequel currently sits at $989.5 million and should reach $1 billion by next week. Jumanji: The Next Level took the third spot with $14 million.

‘1917’ Dominates Box Office Battlefield

With the New Year well underway, it was a changing of the guard this weekend at theaters across North America. Of the four new films opening on Friday, Universal’s Golden Globe winner 1917 had no trouble becoming the nation’s top film. Fellow new arrivals Just Mercy and Like a Boss found themselves duking it out for fourth place while Underwater drowned right out of the gate.

Following its wildly successful limited run that began on Christmas Day, 1917 expanded to 3,404 theaters Friday where it went on to earn an estimated $36.5 million. The overall domestic total for the $90 million production is $39.2 million.

The wide release of 1917 was perfectly situated between last Sunday’s Golden Globes –where the film won Best Picture: Drama and Best Director for Sam Mendes- and the upcoming Oscar nominations, which will be announced on Monday morning.

'1917' Expands with Excellent $36.5 Million Weekend
Universal's 1917 made the most of strong word of mouth and two Golden Globe wins, topping the weekend box office with ease as it expanded nationwide following two weeks in limited release. Meanwhile, Paramount's Like a Boss fell a bit shy of its pre-weekend expectations and Fox's Underwater drowned. WB's expansion of Just Mercy, however, was able to deliver a top five finish as it also went nationwide following its limited release over the December holidays.

With an estimated $36.5 million, Universal's release of Sam Mendes's 1917 topped the weekend box office with ease as it expanded into 3,434 locations after playing in just 11 theaters over the previous two weeks.

‘1917’ Turns Golden Globe Win Into $36.8 Million Box Office Opening

  • The Wrap
Universal’s release strategy for DreamWorks’ “1917” has paid off. After a limited Christmas Day release and a Golden Globe Best Picture win, Sam Mendes’ World War I film went wide this weekend and beat expectations with a $36.5 million opening from 3,434 screens.

When added to the film’s $2.7 million limited domestic run and a $21.1 million overseas start, “1917” has a global total of $60.3 million, topping the $59.4 million total earned by Universal’s other December release, “Cats,” from four weeks of wide release. With a reported budget of $90 million, “1917” should more-than make back its budget, as it is expected to earn multiple Oscar nominations and continue to draw in audiences over the next several weeks.

Audience breakdown for “1917” skewed 65% white and 60% male. But age demographics were fairly even, with 25-34 leading at 29% while 18-24 and 55+ demos were evenly represented at 18%. Reception has stayed strong with an A- CinemaScore grade and a 90% Rotten Tomatoes score.

Box Office: ‘1917’ Defeats ‘Star Wars’ With $36.5 Million Weekend
Sam Mendes’ “1917” marched to box office victory, earning a solid $36.5 million from 3,434 theaters in its first weekend of wide release.

Universal and DreamWorks’ World War I drama also defeated Disney’s “Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker,” the final chapter in the sequel trilogy that has ruled box office charts since debuting in late December. The tentpole slid to second place, generating another $15 million for a domestic haul of $478 million.

“1917” is undoubtedly capitalizing on awards season attention, a promising sign on the eve of Oscar nominations. In a surprise Golden Globes victory last Sunday, the film beat odds-on favorites “The Irishman” and “Marriage Story” to take home the statue for best motion picture – drama. Mendes also nabbed the best director prize. Amblin Partners and New Republic backed the $90 million film, which has enjoyed critical raves.

Box Office: ‘1917’ Explodes for $37 Million Weekend, Topping ‘Star Wars’
Universal and DreamWorks’ “1917” is riding sky-high following its Golden Globes victories, scoring $36.5 million at the U.S. box office in its first weekend playing nationwide.

Sam Mendes’ World War I drama, which took home best picture and best director at the Globes, had previously nabbed $2.7 million in limited release after opening in 11 locations on Christmas Day.

With Oscar nominations expected Monday, “1917” could see further awards buzz over the next several weeks. The $90 million-budgeted pic, starring George MacKay and Dean-Charles Chapman, received an A- CinemaScore from audiences and is currently playing over 3,400 locations.

In second place, “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” is headed for $15.3 million in its fourth weekend. Disney’s third and final installment in J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars trilogy is nearing $500 million at the domestic box office.

‘1917’ Takes No. 1 at Box Office From ‘Star Wars’ in Strong Wide Opening

  • The Wrap
Universal/DreamWorks’ “1917” is getting a big box office boost from its victory at the Golden Globes, beating tracker expectations with its currently estimated $36.5 million wide opening this weekend from 3,434 screens and ending the reign of “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” at the top of the charts.

Combined with a limited release run of $2.7 million over two weeks, “1917” is on pace to finish the weekend with $39.2 million. The World War I film has a reported budget of $90 million, but unlike the similarly budgeted “Cats,” Universal should have a hit on its hands, as this film will play well worldwide through the month as a serious Oscar contender. It is expected to perform strongly in the U.K., where director Sam Mendes and the film’s cast is from.

While the Golden Globes result surprised many viewers who hadn’t seen “1917” yet, audience reception for the film has

‘Like a Boss’ Review: Even Tiffany Haddish Can’t Save This Senseless Friendship Comedy

‘Like a Boss’ Review: Even Tiffany Haddish Can’t Save This Senseless Friendship Comedy
Ah, women, that misunderstood demographic — what do they want anyway? In its mad and misguided scramble to appeal to female audiences, Hollywood is unsurprisingly seriously lacking inspiration. Gone are the days when a writer could simply give the leading lady a consummate bachelor to reform, throw in a career-making magazine assignment or traumatic brain injury, and let the games begin. These days, the decision-making men know it can’t be all about love, and the trend has shifted to another slightly less insulting but just as generic topic: Female friendship. While this worked for genuinely funny hits like “Bridesmaids” and “Girls Trip,” which put comedy front and center, their countless copy-cats, such as “Rough Night,” “Ocean’s Eight,” and “The Hustle,” have landed with a thud.

Unfortunately, despite an enticing cast and a highbrow director, “Like a Boss” falls easily into the latter camp. Starring Tiffany Haddish and Rose Byrne as
