Monday Morning Box Office Report: Jumanji Climbs Back to the Top


With the Super Bowl on TV and very little in theatres this past weekend in terms of new movies, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle defaulted back to the top of the box office in its seventh (!) week of release. The movie added another $11 million, bringing its worldwide total to an amazing $855 million. It has also earned $352 million domestically, making it Sony’s third biggest domestic film of all time behind only the first two Spider-Man movies. Maze Runner: The Death Cure was a close second with $10.2 million while the weekend’s only major new release Winchester opened in third with a respectable $9.3 million despite disappointing reviews. The Greatest Showman remained in fourth as it is proving to have impressive staying power and Hostiles rounded out the top 5.

1. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle — $11M
2. Maze Runner: The Death Cure — $10.2M
3. Winchester — $9.3M

    When the Jumanji sequel came out I thought nothing of it. Another sequel for an older film that comes out years after the original. Who cares? It seemed frivolous and inconsequential. You expected it to come out, make a few bucks, and dissappear into oblivion.

    This movie has now done what no other movie since Titanic back in 1997 (!) has managed to do. Reclaiming the top spot a couple of months after release. This is not just a sleeper hit anymore, it’s a phenomenon.
