'Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle' Wins Weekend Box Office!

Weekend box office The Post opens strong but can’t beat Jumanji

7, 2018, that the Johnson-led â€Jumanji” is estimated to have earned an additional $36 million, bringing its total to $244.4 million.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle enjoyed a second week atop the United States box office, holding off challenges from Steven Spielberg's The Post, Liam Neeson actioner The Commuter, and the marmalade and sterling snaffling British blockbuster, Paddington 2. The Jake Kasdan-directed film was number one in 31 worldwide markets and has earned $667 million (£485.6 million) globally.

Less successful was the Liam Neeson vehicle The Commuter, which opened with US$13.4 million, according to comScore which compiles box office data. Finally living up to its titular billing in fifth was The Greatest Showman, which is showing tremendous legs, dipping a minuscule 14% with an estimated $11.8 million for the three days, and heading towards $100 million with forward momentum.

Meanwhile, Star Wars: The Last Jedi has topped Beauty and the Beast to become the highest-grossing release of 2017 with $1.265 billion and has placed in the top 10 highest-grossing films of all time. Paddington 2 also made just $10.6 million, less than half of what its prequel made in 2014. It's hard to know what want wrong?

The Post, a well-reviewed recounting of The Washington Post's efforts to release the Pentagon Papers that stars Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks, took in $18 million in its first week in wide release, good for second place.

The movie has also performed well overseas, earning $81 million (£59 million) total over the weekend, including $40 million (£29.1 million) in China.
