Last weekend at the box office.....

"Ralph Breaks The Internet" topped the box office again, "The Grinch" took over the second spot, and "Creed II" is holding strong in the third spot!

“Ralph Breaks the Internet” – $25.8 million

“Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch” – $17.7 million

The 25th Anniversary of Schindler’s List is back in the theaters for an exclusive engagement. German industrialist Oskar Schindler (Liam Neeson) plots with his accountant (Ben Kingsley) to save Jewish prisoners from the Nazis.

Ben is Back stars Julia Roberts who plays a mom having to deal with her son coming home and staying sober.
