The Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg duo comedy Daddy’s Home, despite falling from second to third, is still doing some steady work at the box office, raking in another $15 million this weekend. users gave this movie a 3.7 star rating.

Game of Thrones star Natalie Dormer stars in the low-budget horror flick The Forest, which debuted in fourth this weekend, earning a respectable (and surprising) $13.1 million, as well as a 3.9 star rating from users.
