Box Office Weekend: January 12, 2018

There I was, folding my laundry at my parents’ house (not because I bring laundry home, but because I was trying to de-clutter my childhood existence from their home) when I saw a freaking Paddington trailer! PADDINGTON! And no one told me. (First no one was like, “Hey, Pit Crew, the last bastion of your youth, is closing,” and no no one is like, “DID YOU HEAR ABOUT PADDINGTON 2?”)

Oh, and like, there’s other movies this weekend, too.

Paddington 2 is the sequel to 2014 holiday family film, Paddington. Now established with the Brown family (Hugh Bonneville and Sally Hawkins), and beloved member of the community, Paddington the Bear faces a new villain (Hugh Grant), who frames the cub for theft.

Here’s my bud making marmalade in jail:

Freak Show stars Alex Lawther as a teenager thrust into conservative society. Bette Midler also stars!

The Commuter stars Liam Neeson and Vera Farmiga. Neeson plays his standard role, an ordinary man in extraordinary circumstances, who has to kick the butt of a shadowy agency so everyone can live their lives. Or whatever.

Humor Me stars Jermaine Clement as a man who moves in with his dad (Elliott Gould!) when his wife leaves him. He put on a play for the elderly, and hopefully it goes over better than that time BoJack did a live reading of Horsin’ Around.

Wastelander is a “cruel dystopian film.”

My Art stars Laurie Simmons as a woman seeking tranquility during an upstate New York housesit. Simmons wrote and directed the film, and it feels a little like a companion to Tiny Furniture.

Vazante is a black and white Brazilian film. It is about a woman who marries a slave trader and lives a very unhappy life.

Acts of Violence stars Bruce Willis.

Proud Mary stars Taraji P. Henson as a hitwoman whose life is besieged by a young boy.

Almost Paris was released Tuesday.

Netflix released Alejandro Riaño Especial de Stand Up on Wednesday. Today sees releases for…
