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.

Led Coalition Helps To Build Border Force In Syria
The Turkish forces were firing from Turkey's southern province Hatay and the observation point in Syria's Idlib province. A senior Syrian Kurdish official said on Sunday that fighting between the YPG and Turkish forces was already under way.

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.
