Its domestic total will amass to $291.6 million since its initial debut 29 days ago, earning the spot as the eighth highest grossing film released previous year.

This week, Star Wars: The Last Jedi also moved up to 10th place on the list of the world's highest-earning films, having made $1.2 billion total so far. The film is now approaching $300 million domestically and, after grossing $40 million in China this weekend, a worldwide total of $667 million. The Pentagon Papers drama starring Meryl Streep as The Washington Post publisher Katharine Graham and Tom Hanks as editor Ben Bradlee collected approximately $18.6 million. "It resonates with an older audience because they were around and remember this particular moment in time", said 20th Century Fox distribution chief Chris Aronson. Landing at No. 2 was Steven Spielberg's awards-season hopeful "The Post". FOX is hoping to build word of mouth with the goal of gaining potential Oscar attention.

Jenifferjit Sidhu saying she was "very, very smart" for shouting and joining the group of students ahead of her. Sidhu said this is "an isolated incident", such that she has never seen in her 20 years of service.

Leading new releases this weekend is Lionsgate's "The Commuter", which hit independent tracker expectations with an estimated $15 million four-day start. "The Commuter" reportedly cost $30 million to make. Warner. Bros.' launch of family comedy "Paddington 2" finished sixth with $15 million, in line with the lower end of forecasts and just ahead of Universal's second weekend of "Insidious: The Last Key" with $14.6 million at 3,150 venues. With Saturday's estimates sitting around $13 million, it's looking like matinees aren't going to push the needle for this film. The good news is that it may get that, as "Paddington 2" has a flawless critical record: an A on CinemaScore and a remarkable 100 percent "Fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes. It's a disappointing result for lead star Taraji P. Henson, who was the queen of MLK weekend a year ago as the lead of "Hidden Figures", making $27.5 million in its first weekend in wide release.
