I enjoy watching films and discussing them in terms of quality and how they perform financially.

This weekend, Thor: Ragnarok repeated with ease, falling 53.5% and adding on $57.1 million for a total of $212.1 million through ten days. It has already eclipsed the domestic totals of the previous Thor films and, while a much higher second weekend drop than the first one, this is lighter than that of The Dark World (-57.3%). Meanwhile, the two newcomers did well for themselves. Daddy's Home 2 opened above my expectations at $29.7 million. This is quite a bit lower than the original's $38.7 million debut, but I expected the decline from the original to be much greater. Close behind in third was Murder on the Orient Express, with a strong $28.7 million debut. While this is slightly below my expectations, this is still a strong debut and also tops the opening weekend of last year's The Girl on the Train ($24.5 million). In fourth, A Bad Mom's Christmas shockingly had a light dip of 31.6%, adding on $11.5 million for a total of $39.8 million through Sunday. This second weekend decline is also far lighter than that of its predecessor (-41.2%). In fifth, Jigsaw didn't fall too hard. It added on $3.4 million, dropping 47.8%, with a total of $34.4 million through Sunday.
