Atomic Blonde by far. Not only was the historic setting in Berlin interesting, but it had a nice dark tone. What fascinated me the most was the fact that Charlize Theron did all of her own fight scenes including one amazing two minute brutal fight scene that was filmed continuously with no breaks.

If you have not seen it and you like musicals like "Les Miserables", "Chicago", and "Mamma Mia" (the original movie, not the sequel), do yourself a favor and see this movie!!

(Btw, the critics did not like it -- main complaint was that it didn't portray P.T. Barnum accurately -- but most of the audience reviews are VERY positive. 95% of Google viewers liked it, and with a budget of $84 million, it made about $435 million at the box office. I think a case can be made that many reviewers allow their political views to affect their movie reviews.)

RT shows $164 million box office. I thought global sales might double domestic box office. Tripling it is interesting.

Soon as it was over, I wanted to rewind and watch it again.

Not sure if you are questioning "my" quote of $435 million, but this is the link I got that number from:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Greatest_Showman

(Actually, it said $434.5 million.)

Charley Varrick.....1973

Walter Mathau played a crop duster who robbed a small town bank that was laundering mob money

One of my favorites despite the fact few people remember it.

Still trying to figure out how box office is figured out. Only two I know of is domestic/USA and global. Unless the figure shows how it was computed, it may be impossible to determine financial success. RT shows 164 million box office. I use RT for movies.

Wikipedia can be edited by any Wikipedia editor. Both a strength and a weakness by my estimation. Some of their articles are superb. Others are horrendously politically biased. It is also dependent on outside funding which assures a bias favorable too the funders.

Thanks for the link of course. Though I may still believe that IMBD and RT are more preferred movie data sources. Could be an interesting debate...

It is on my "to-do" list of movies to watch on Netflix. I've been searching for lesser known movies that are supposed to be really good and it is one that I came across.
