Weekend Box Office: Jumanji & Insidious Beat Last Jedi

Star Wars The Last Jedi Has Reached $1.205 Billion Worldwide

The zany promotion never stopped: Johnson has continually talked up Jumanji to his 12.4 million Twitter and 98.4 million Instagram followers, from the film's Hawaiian set to presentations at CinemaCon, the trade show for theater owners.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle moved from the runner-up position to first place at the box office over the weekend by earning an estimated $36-million.

Not even a red-carpet premiere at the Shanghai Disney Resort and marketing partnerships with Pepsi, Alibaba and Samsung could avert a disappointing $28.6-million debut for the latest "Star Wars" film, according to film consulting firm Artisan Gateway.

The Jumanji sequel's chart-topping box office weekend - in which the film overtook Star Wars: The Last Jedi's run atop the weekly box office - pushed it to almost $245 million domestically in total.

It'll be interesting to watch how The Last Key performs from here, given the critical lashing it's taken.

Welcome to the Jungle debuted with positive reviews and has since built on that word of mouth to continue bringing in impressive audiences throughout the holiday box office. The fourth entry in the Insidious franchise benefited from familiarity and the lack of new wide releases this weekend.

Ferdinand was down 32% in its fourth weekend with $7.7 million, bringing its totals to $70.5 million domestically and $183.3 million from a $111 million budget. The worldwide total on Jedi rose to $632.7M putting the global gross at $1.2 billion with the final trajectory heading to $1.4 billion. Insidious: The Last Key was met with a chorus of boos from critics -a 49/100 from Metacritic and a 25% approval on Rotten Tomatoes-, but audiences were a little more kind.

Internationally, Pitch Perfect 3 grossed $18.1 million from 43 markets, bringing its total to $55m. To date, it has earned $53 million.

Focus Features continued to expand its WWII drama Darkest Hour, starring recent Golden Globe victor Gary Oldman, and it remained in eighth place with $6.1 million, up 16% from the holiday weekend. While many have moved on from physical media, disc-based films still provide the highest quality picture at home that digital copies and streaming have yet to match.

The biggest climber in the top ten since last week has to be "Molly's Game" which grossed $7 million (£5.1m) as it made it into the 7 place this weekend.

Next weekend will see a host of new films opening or expanding. Worldwide total is $74.49m and global is $150.39m.
