Sony's "Bad Boys for Life" and Universal's "1917" continue to drive the box office, as both films will cross $100 million domestic this weekend.

Will Smith et al. posing for the camera © TheWrap   "Bad Boys for Life" will take No. 1 again with an estimated $30 million second weekend, a 52% drop from the threequel's $62.5 million 3-day opening that would give it a domestic total of $117 million. "1917," which is in its third weekend wide, is estimated to earn $14 million to bring its total to $102 million domestic.

"1917" will be the fourth Best Picture Oscar nominee in this year's field to cross the $100 million mark, joining "Joker," "Ford v Ferrari," and 'Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood." Another nominee, Sony's "Little Women," is close to the mark with $4.2 million grossed in its fifth weekend and a $93 million total. If and when "Little Women" crosses the milestone, it will make 2020 the first year since 2013 in which five Best Picture nominees grossed over $100 million in North America.

In third is Universal's "Dolittle" with a second weekend total of $11.1 million, which would give it a 10-day total of $43.2 million that's well shy of its $175 million budget. Just behind it is new release "The Gentlemen" from STX, which is meeting tracker expectations of a $10 million opening from 2,165 screens. STX paid $7 million for distribution rights, so this will be a success for the studio.

However, "The Gentlemen" is performing below the $15.2 million opening for another STX action film, "Den of Thieves," which opened in January 2018. Reception has been generally positive with a B+ on CinemaScore and 71% on Rotten Tomatoes, so it is likely that "Bad Boys for Life" is peeling away audiences looking for an action film.

Close together for the No. 5 spot are Sony's "Jumanij: The Next Level" and Universal's new release "The Turning," with "Jumanji" having a narrow lead at $7 million compared to $6.8 million for "The Turning."

'1917' Turns Golden Globe Win Into $36.8 Million Box Office Opening

  '1917' Turns Golden Globe Win Into $36.8 Million Box Office Opening Universal's release strategy for DreamWorks' "1917" has paid off. After a limited Christmas Day release and a surprise Golden Globe Best Picture win, Sam Mendes' World War I film went wide this weekend and beat expectations with a $36.5 million opening from 3,434 screens. When added to the film's $2.7 million limited domestic run and a $21.1 million overseas start, "1917" has a global total of $60.3 million, topping the $59.4 million total earned by Universal's other December release, "Cats," from four weeks of wide release.

While "The Turning" has a far smaller budget and marketing spend than recent Universal flops "Cats" and "Dolittle," it has now become the second film this month to earn the dreaded F on CinemaScore, joining Sony's "The Grudge." Also like "The Grudge," critics have panned the film with a 13% Rotten Tomatoes score. Overall, "The Turning" is the 21st film in the history of the CinemaScore audience poll to receive an F.

At least one outside speechwriting agency confirms that Pitt’s representatives contacted the organization.Pitt’s “I would’ve shared the raft” nod to his OUATIH foil, Leonardo DiCaprio? Slick yet magnanimous. The crack about avowed foot fetishist Quentin Tarantino having “separated more women from their shoes than the TSA”? Culturally sticky beyond the normal bounds of off-the-cuff remarks. And Pitt joking about putting his SAG statuette on his “Tinder profile”? The platonic ideal of a humblebrag.
