Twentieth Century Fox is forecasting $18.6 million for the weekend.

"Jumanji" will finish the holiday with $291.6 million in 29 days, now ranking as the eighth highest grosser released in 2017. Entertainment Weekly reports that the movie is expected to bring in $27 million this weekend at United States and Canadia theatres, making it No. 1 for two weeks in a row. The global picture is far better, of course: As of Sunday, Last Jedi had a worldwide haul of $1.264 billion, making it the biggest film of 2017. Helmed by twice BAFTA nominated director Paul King, PADDINGTON 2 is co-produced by multi award-winning David Heyman / Heyday Films (producer of all eight of the HARRY POTTER films, GRAVITY, THE BOY IN THE STRIPED PYJAMAS, FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM) and StudioCanal, who will also distribute in the UK, France, Germany, Australia and New Zealand.

Freezing rain possible for Timmins and area
Temperatures will drop below 0 C by late afternoon and keep going lower, down to -15 C overnight - with wind chill on top of that. Morning flurries will change to rain showers later this morning, according to the most recent forecast from Environment Canada.

Coming closest was Steven Spielberg's "The Post", starring Streep and Tom Hanks.

Fox is also getting great word of mouth for "The Greatest Showman", which continues to hang tough in the top five with a $15 million four-day weekend. "The Commuter" reportedly cost $30 million to make. Instead, it's looking at an opening of around $14.5 million from 3,702. 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.
