'Jumanji' Powers Solid Holiday Weekend With $35.4 Million

'Jumanji' Powers Solid Holiday Weekend With $35.4 Million

Sony Corp.'s "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" retained the top spot with $27 million.

There is just no stopping "Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle", as it managed to increase the estimate for this four day weekend to $34 million.

Coming closest was Steven Spielberg's "The Post", starring Streep and Tom Hanks.

Fox has been slowly rolling out the Oscar contender to build word-of-mouth, and is hoping for attention from the Academy Awards to give it a long tail. Nominations are released next week.

Less successful was the Liam Neeson vehicle The Commuter, which opened with US$13.4 million, according to comScore which compiles box office data. Paddington 2 also made just $10.6 million, less than half of what its prequel made in 2014.

Fox's "The Greatest Showman" and new live-action animated comedy "Paddington 2" were projected to tie in fifth, both set to nab $14.5 million.

It's a big shame for not only Warner Bros. but also DCEU that its first ever huge, assembled team of superheroes, Justice League, has received such a devastating response from not only the critics, but also from the fans, and due to which, the box-office run of "JL" had been nothing less than a awful nightmare! Though some accused Sony's Screen Gems of burying the film (it didn't screen for critics), the movie drew poor reviews and, who accused the film of exploiting the title to his Creedence Clearwater Revival classic.

The family-oriented sequel Paddington 2 debuted in sixth place earning $15 million from families presumably not wanting to take in Jumanji or Star Wars again. "Right now, it's the films that have been out there for a while that are inspiring the most enthusiasm and that's been tough for the newcomers". A week later, it has already been largely pulled from Chinese theaters to make way for new Chinese releases and "Jumanji". "But there is a very strong force with Dwayne Johnson".

Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at US and Canadian theaters, according to comScore.

Armed with an 88 percent Rotten Tomatoes score and a straight A from CinemaScore polls, "The Post" is looking at a $21.5 four-day total after making $5.9 million on Friday.
