Audiences may have been sceptical when the project was first announced, but Sony’s Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle has proven to be a runaway success at the box office, with the film pushing its worldwide haul to $767.8 million and counting.

‘Jumanji’ Surprise: How The Rock’s Hit Did the Opposite of What Most Blockbusters Do
As “Star Wars” begins to fade out of the box office conversation, the focus now shifts to “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle,” which has performed beyond many analysts expectations and is now reaching revenue levels equal to that of some superhero films.

‘Jumanji’ Three-Peats as Box Office Champ While ’12 Strong’ and ‘Den of Thieves’ Earn Solid Starts

Star Wars: The Last Jedi To Fall Short Of Box Office Expectations

Bursting through one box office record after another, Rian Johnson’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi quickly became the highest grossing movie of 2017 – much to the surprise of no one. Currently sitting at $1.27 billion, it’s been a tremendous success by all accounts – well, maybe except for its stumble in China – and the folks at Disney are no doubt very, very happy about it. But it turns out that even after all that, Episode VIII will still fall just short of where initial estimates pegged it at.

If you recall, analysts predicted The Last Jedi to conclude its theatrical run in the $1.6 billion range, which could have made it one of the top 5 highest grossing films of all-time. Now, however, those figures have been revised, with the sequel expected to finish up at $1.3 billion. Sure, that’s not a huge difference, but it is interesting to learn as for the past few weeks,

Competition Will be Stiff for New Releases With 'Jumanji' Set to Remain #1

Competition Will be Stiff for New Releases With 'Jumanji' Set to Remain #1
This weekend sees Warner Bros.'s 12 Strong and STX's R-rated heist thriller Den of Thieves hitting theaters, both of which are targeting male audiences, which means they'll also have to contend with the NFL conference championship games this Sunday. Additionally, a couple of notable expansions are taking place this weekend along with Roadside's moderate release of Forever My Girl. That being said, all appear as if they'll be settling in behind last weekend's #1 and #2 films, as Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and The Post are expected to hold on to those top two spots. Jumanji topped last weekend's box office after dropping just 24.5%, and this weekend it should continue to hold on rather well. While we're currently anticipating a drop around 32% and a fifth weekend around $19 million, don't be surprised if it hangs on a little better than that. The film should top $315 million domestically by end of day Sunday,

The Preview Reel: 12 Strong and Den of Thieves

Welcome to the “Preview Reel” column, where we look at this week’s upcoming wide-release movies. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle continues its hot streak at the box office, and with two soft contenders entering the ring this week, we don’t see why its reign won’t continue. There’s the based-on-a-true-story war flick 12 Strong and Gerard Butler’s Den of Thieves, neither of which is premiering with much fanfare. Is either of these worthy of the price of admission? Let’s see.

12 Strong

What we are excited about: The cast, no pun intended, is strong. Chris Hemsworth has proven to be good leading man with the “Thor” and “Avenger” franchises, and he has plenty of talent surrounding him too. Michael Shannon, Taylor Sheridan, Michael Pena, and William Fichtner are all great supporting actors. Combine the acting talent with a strong true story, and this has the potential to

As the family-friendly fantasy film Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle attempts to hang on to the top spot at the domestic box office for the third weekend in a row, it is facing off against a challenge from 12 Strong, which follows a Special Forces team into battle in Afghanistan in the wake of 9/11. Both films could take in about $15 million or more before the dust settles.

Box Office: ‘Jumanji’ Poised for Three-Peat, Despite Challenge From ‘12 Strong’

Box Office: ‘Jumanji’ Poised for Three-Peat, Despite Challenge From ‘12 Strong’
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” is poised for a three-peat at the North American box office this weekend, but will face challenges from Afghanistan war drama “12 Strong” and heist thriller “Den of Thieves.”

Jumanji” is likely to take in between $15 million to $20 million in its fifth frame, which will lift its total domestic take to around $320 million — making the action-comedy one of the top 60 domestic performers of all time, with plenty of drawing power in the weeks to come. International performance for the Dwayne Johnson-Kevin Hart vehicle has been impressive with $385 million so far.

12 Strong,” produced by Alcon Entertainment, Black Label Media, and Jerry Bruckheimer, will pose the greater threat, with tracking showing an opening in the $14 million to $17 million range at 3,002 locations — including Imax, premium large format, and Dolby Cinema.

Will 12 Strong Dethrone Jumanji at the Box Office This Weekend?

Will 12 Strong Dethrone Jumanji at the Box Office This Weekend?
After opening behind Star Wars: The Last Jedi in its first two weekends at the box office, Sony's Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle has come on strong by winning its next two frames in a row. This blockbuster adventure faces its biggest test yet this weekend, going up against three newcomers, Warner Bros.' 12 Strong, set in the direct aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Stx Entertainment's Den of Thieves, starring Gerard Butler and 50 Cent, and Roadside Attractions' Forever My Girl, starring Alex Roe and Jessica Rothe. While it certainly may be a close call at the box office this weekend, we're predicting that 12 Strong will barely be able to take down Jumanji with $16.2 million, with Jumanji close behind earning $15.8 million.

Jumanji Swings Past Justice League at the Worldwide Box Office

Sony has found themselves a massive hit with Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. The movie spent its first couple of weekends trailing The Last Jedi, but it's won two straight weeks at the box office and has crossed a pretty surprising milestone. Jumanj has officially passed Justice League at the global box office. That's surprising for an array of reasons, but it, if anything, proves just how reliable The Rock has become in terms of delivering a hit.

With the Mlk weekend box office added in, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle has brought in a grand total of $674.5 million worldwide. That's already a sizable amount more than Warner Bros.' Justice League, which made $654.4 million worldwide during its run. This both indicates how much of a surprise hit the Jumanji sequel has been and how much of a disappointment Justice League was. Especially considering how well Wonder Woman did financially and critically.

How Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle proved doubters wrong

Simon Brew Jan 16, 2018

It's become a surprise commercial and critical hit - so what has the new Jumanji film got right?

Spoilers lie ahead for Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle.

Over the weekend, I was back at my local multiplex to see the quite wonderful Coco. On the way in, I saw the manager of said picture palace, and we had a bit of a chat. He’s a friendly man, and just the kind of manager you want: always checks that everyone’s okay, is there if anything goes wrong.

He’s also good for a bit of insider chat, too. And we got talking about Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle.

I don’t think I was alone in inwardly sighing when I first learned of a reboot/sequel to Jumanji. I don’t hold massive affection for the original (although I thought Zathura was great), but still enjoyed it.
