Peter Rabbit saw its receipts fall just 6.5% from its opening weekend and cleared $23 million last weekend. Early Man topped $4 million during its debut weekend.
Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle topped the $10 million mark for the ninth weekend in a row last weekend and is closing in on the $1 billion mark worldwide.

See Annihilation or I, Tonya at Hi-Pointe Theatre This Weekend
Hi-Pointe Theatre is a hidden gem of St. Louis. The Hi-Pointe Backlot is even more so, hidden behind the main theater on McCausland Avenue. Hi-Pointe has been around since 1922 at the Southwest corner of Forest Park and below the world’s largest Amoco sign.
Hi-Pointe Backlot came on the scene in 2015 on the second floor of a building right behind the main theater. It took three years of rehab before the owners of Hi-Pointe spent 60 straight days putting the final touches on the space. The 48-seat theater has drawn stellar reviews from movie fans.
See I, Tonya this weekend at Hi-Pointe Backlot, while Annihilation plays at Hi-Pointe Theatre.
