It's been slow around the box office in early 2018, and, as noted, there was only one movie last week as well. I landed in range with my prediction for The Maze Runner: The Death Cure (Predicted: 34% Actual: 44%). I suspected it would come in under the second movie in the franchise, The Scorch Trials (46%), but instead, it landed right beside it. Most critics, like CinemaBlend's Dirk Libby, agreed that really only hardcore fans of the franchise would have any real interest in the film. That's typically the case with these middling series trilogy-cappers, but doesn't mean we need to completely write them off. This wasn't a bottom-feeder by any stretch, even if it didn't blow the critics' doors off. And we won't need to worry about predicting anything else from Thomas and the W.C.K.D. crew, because this franchise is a theatrical wrap.

Next time around we've got The 15:17 to Paris, Fifty Shades Freed and Peter Rabbit. It's gonna be a Rotten Week!
