Final Thought – Cinema Releases 1 February 2019 & Box Office

Horror/Thriller film Escape Room has so far taken more than $40 million in the USA alone, however whether it proves to be as popular with UK audiences remains to be seen. Personally I don’t believe it will. Meanwhile M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass starring Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, James McAvoy and Anya Taylor-Joy continues to do well on both sides of the Atlantic.
