The Post vs Paddington 2 vs The Commuter vs Proud Mary

A slew of new movies hit theaters this January weekend.

The Post
Hit Factor: Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks, Meryl Streep.
Flop Factor: In line with Spielberg's smaller, but award acclaimed films, rather than his money making popcorn spectacles.

Paddington 2
Hit Factor: Enough of an audience of the first film to warrant a second.
Flop Factor: Still somewhat crowded box office for family films with Coco, Ferdinand, and to a lessor extent, Jumanji, in theaters.

The Commuter
Hit Factor: Liam Neeson on a train.
Flop Factor: Nothing really new for a Liam Neeson action pic here.

Proud Mary
Hit Factor: Taraji P. Henson kicking ass.
Flop Factor: Crowded box office.

My Predictions:

The Post
Star Wars: The Last Jedi
Insidious: The Last Key
Weekend Gross (millions)
