WEEKEND BOX OFFICE:  The Rise of Skywalker easily threepeats atop the chart with 33.7MM on a 53 percent drop, slipping back behind The Last Jedi, tho this may be a function of releasing this one closer to Christmas, a decision that may cost the House of Mouse 100MM.  Jumanji: The Next Level places with 26.5MM on a 25 percent drop that's pretty leggy considering the first one was a surprise and this one wasn't.  Little Women shows with 13.6MM on a leggy 19 percent drop, making the complaints about people not seeing it all the more strange.  The Grudge debuts in the fourth slot with11.3MM against a 10MM budget, and it will die quickly with an "F" CinemaScore.  Frozen II rounds out the Top Five with another 11.3MM on a 33 percent drop, approaching 450MM domestic, which is 50MM more than the original made in domestic theaters.
