Returning 17 years after their last teaming Will Smith and Martin Lawrence team up as Bad Boys again in Bad Boys For Life and hit the top with a far better than expected debut while Robert Downey Jr. limps into number 2 with Dolittle.

Bad Boys For Life

With a change of director from Micheal Bay to Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah the Will Smith and Martin Lawrence sequel vehicle hits the top of the US box office with ease taking a surprising $59.1 Million.

The last time we had a Bad Boys movie was 17 years ago in July 2003 when Bad Boys II made its debut at the top with $46.5 Million, so the love for this franchise has not demished at all.

Dolittle

Dolittle

Robert Downey Jr. first movie since the mega smash hit Avengers: Endgame which went on to be the highest grossing movie of all time limps into the box offie with a debut gross of $22.5 Million.

This will be worrying for the studio and it could end up as one of the stars lowest grossing movies.

To put this into perspective the debut gross is even lower that the $29 Million debut of the 1998 Eddie Murphy Doctor Dolittle, without adjusting for inflation.

1917

Sam Mendes much praised war movie drop to number 2 this weekend with a $22.1 Million weekend gross putting the film total at $76.7 Million after 4 weeks of release, 2 weeks on wide release.

Jumanji: The Next Level

The Dwayne Johnson starring sequel movie falls to 4 this weekend with $9.5 Million for a US total gross of $270.4 Million after 6 weeks of release.

Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker

J.J. Abrams final star wars movie falls to 5 this week with $8.3 Million on its 5th weekend of release.

The film has without doubt been a success with a total US gross of $492 Million and is the highest total grossing movie on the box offie this week, but in terms of film in the Star Wars franchise, and the marketing hype the film was given, it is perhaps a failure and wont reach the $620 Million of Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Some good news this week for the film, it has passed the $474.5 Million of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace.

Parasite

The much praised South Korea movie is the longest running film on the US box office this week with 15 weeks and a total gross of $27.7 Million.

The movie has got a name change from The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle to simply Dolittle and Universal have treated us to the first poster and trailer for the man who can walk with the animals as well as talk to them.

Universal Pictures

The movies stars Robert Downey Jr. as the title character but the likes of Rami Malek, Tom Holland and Micheal Sheen are lending their voices for the many animals.

The trailer shows the film is set in the past and there is plenty of CGI goodness on display as the animals get a good showing, and its clear than Downey Jr. is more Rex Harrison and less Eddie Murphy.

The movie is set for release on January 17th 2020 and you an check out the trailer below.
