Jumanji 2 Continues To Stampede All Over The Box Office

Adjust Comment Print

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is still roaring at the box office in its fourth weekend in theaters as Deadline reports the film will bring in an additional $34.3 million to its domestic total.

Jumanji 2 however, is still running more than successfully, as it also topped this weekend too against other competitors. It is also expected to surpass $300 (218.4) million in domestic earnings this week (begs15Jan18).

Regarding comparisons to Star Wars: The Last Jedi, obviously Jumanji probably won't beat The Last Jedi's total box office (simply because it's a "Star Wars" movie), but Jumanji has been out performing Star Wars: The Last Jedi in the US on a day-to-day and a weekend basis. The Jake Kasdan-directed film was number one in 31 global markets and has earned $667 million (£485.6 million) globally.

Speaking to Sky Sports , the Belgian said: "It doesn't help when the fans boo and whistle after each misplaced pass". Fabregas almost put Chelsea ahead against the run of play, but the midfielder's drive was tipped over by Schmeichel.

Less successful was the Liam Neeson vehicle "The Commuter", which opened to $13.4 million, according to comScore, which compiles box office data.

Coming in second is Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks' The Post, a political thriller directed by Steven Spielberg which depicts journalists from The Washington Post and The New York Times as they make the decision to publish the Pentagon Papers, with $22.2 million (£16.2 million). The total will grow to over $33.4 million if you count the MLK Monday which is a public holiday. Warner. Bros.' launch of family comedy "Paddington 2" finished sixth with $15 million, in line with the lower end of forecasts and just ahead of Universal's second weekend of "Insidious: The Last Key" with $14.6 million at 3,150 venues. The global picture is far better, of course: As of Sunday, Last Jedi had a worldwide haul of $1.264 billion, making it the biggest film of 2017.
