I think it's safe to say that the 'stats' for Florence Foster Jenkins have reached their peak. With 176 reviews counted on Rotten Tomatoes, the film sits at a strong 86%. Its score on Metacritic rests at 71 (generally favorable reviews), with 46 counted. A handful of theaters are still showing the movie across the U.S., but with a box office haul of $27.1 million as of yesterday, it likely will not reach $28m. The receipts are just barely better than last year's Ricki and the Flash ($26.8m), but the critic responses fared much better for Florence, which bodes well for Meryl's chances at awards recognition. DVD/Blu-ray and digital downloads are expected in the States sometime in December. My understanding is that it's being released in the U.K. and Australia this week.
When Meryl said in late 2014 that Florence would be her last project for a while, it unfortunately turned out to be quite true. That film wrapped in July 2015 and I see no reason to expect that she will film anything earlier than the second half of 2017. Her IMDbpro page still lists Master Class as "optioned," but that isn't happening. We know The Good House has dropped off her page (although it's still listed on the FilmNation website as "in development" with Streep and De Niro). Since Mary Poppins Returns is not being released until Christmas 2018, for all we know Meryl's small role may not film for over a year. I've seen nothing further on The Nix since its announcement nearly a month ago.
I'm looking forward to early December to see if Meryl squeaks into the top five for the Golden Globes and SAGs. This quiet time in her work schedule is the worst. At least we'll get to hear a bit form her at the Rome Film Festival later this month.
