Box-Office Weekend: Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle on Top Again

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle once again stood tall over the box-office weekend bringing in an additional $20 million. This gives the film a five-week domestic total of $317 million. Second and third places belong to two films making their debuts this week. With $16.4 million, the war drama 12 Strong finished just ahead of the heist-thriller Den of Thieves which brought in $15.3 million.

Steven Spielberg’s The Post dropped from the second to the fourth spot this week, earning $12.2 million. Despite the lower finish, the film has still made a decent $45.2 million during its five-week run. Elsewhere, The Greatest Showman also dropped a spot, yet it added $11 million to raise its five-week total to $113.5 million.

The family-friendly Paddington 2 held onto the sixth spot with $8.2 million. In just two weeks, the film has earned an impressive $25 million. As sustainable as Paddington’s success seems to be, that does not appear to be

Jumanji Wins 3rd Week in a Row at the Box Office

Jumanji Wins 3rd Week in a Row at the Box Office
After losing its first two weekends to Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Sony's Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle has turned into an unconventional blockbuster, winning at the box office for its third weekend in a row. The action-adventure starring Dwayne The Rock Johnson posted another minimal drop this weekend, dipping just 28.7% last weekend to remain atop the box office with just over $20 million, beating out three newcomers, Warner Bros.' 12 Strong, Stx's Den of Thieves and Roadside Attractions' Forever My Girl, none of which could match up to Jumanji this weekend. While its impressive run may be coming to an end soon, this remake has put up some impressive numbers.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle has pulled in an impressive $316.9 million at the domestic box office in just five weeks, with an additional $450 million at the international box office for a worldwide total of $767.7 million, from a $90 million budget.

The U.K. is the second largest with $43.7 million, followed by Australia with $31.9 million.

A pair of international titles took the next two slots with “Secret Superstar,” the latest film vehicle for Indian superstar Aamir Khan, opening with $25.6 million in China. The film — a coming of age story about a teenage girl who wants to be a

Jason Blum wants to make an Insidious and Sinister crossover

We’ve seen a few horror crossovers over the years – see Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man, Freddy vs. Jason, Alien vs. Predator, Sadako vs. Kayako, et al – and now producer Jason Blum has suggested that another may be in the offing.

During an interview with CinePop to promote the release of Insidious: The Last Key [read our review here], the Blumhouse Productions founder was asked about the possibility of a crossover between the Insidious and Sinister franchises:

“I hope so,” replied Blum. “I want to. We almost did Insidious and Sinister and I still feel like we might do that so, I think so. I think we’re going to cross our worlds at some point. I don’t know how yet but we’re gonna try.”

Both Insidious and Sinister proved to be critical and commercial successes, with the two franchises having grossed over $550 million worldwide across their six instalments.

‘Hagsploitation’: horror’s obsession with older women returns

Hollywood horror was once replete with meaty roles for older women. Now the Insidious franchise is resurrecting the tradition – but is this really something to celebrate?

‘To you, that’s weird. To me, it’s just a day job,” says Elise Rainier, professional psychic. In the first Insidious film, in 2010, Elise died in the final act. But, this being a supernatural horror franchise in which death means never having to say you’re gone for ever, she was resurrected as a ghost in the 2013 sequel before the series looped back in time for a 2015 prequel in which, still alive and kicking, Elise is brought on to tackle an earlier case of demonic possession.

Now, in Insidious: The Last Key, Elise has been promoted to protagonist for yet another prequel, complete with flashbacks to her origin story. “There’s something evil in that house,” she says, before metaphorically rolling up her

Insidious The Last Key Review

Author: James Perkins

It will be a surprise to no-one that, following the monumental box office success of the first Insidious film in 2011, we now sit here seven years later having reached the fourth installment of this modern horror franchise. As with most other franchises of this ilk (cheap to make and turn over a colossal profit), after several iterations, they lose considerable steam (I’m looking at you, Paranormal Activity). So one would assume that is the case with Insidious: The Last Key, however, that is not so as this series has astonishingly taken a turn for the better courtesy of its unlikely star, Lin Shaye.

Insidious: The Last Key sits comfortably in the timeline between Chapter Three and Chapter One meaning it serves as both a prequel and a sequel. The story explores more of the backstory of Elise (Lin Shaye) as nightmares of her childhood come back

Box-Office Weekend: Jumanji Maintains Hold on Box Office

Bringing in an estimated $35.4 million over the four-day holiday weekend allowed Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle to easily retain its perch atop the box office. In just four weeks, the film has grossed an impressive $291.6 million. Steven Spielberg’s new film The Post locked in at the second spot in its fourth week, and first week of wide release with a showing of $23.4 million.

Liam Neeson’s newest action thriller, The Commuter, debuted with a tangible $16.4 million, which was good enough for third place in this week’s top ten. Meanwhile, the Hugh Jackman vehicle, The Greatest Showman held onto the fourth spot, bringing in $15.3 million to raise its four-week total to $98.4 million. Although Star Wars: Episode VIII—The Last Jedi fell to fifth place just behind The Greatest Showman with $15.3 million, the film’s five-week total of $595.6 million is probably leaving everyone involved with it smiling these days.

Sony’s “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” is showing plenty of staying power at the North American box office with an estimated $35.4 million at 3,849 sites, easily winning the four-day Martin Luther King Jr. weekend.

“Jumanji” will finish the holiday with $291.6 million in 29 days, now ranking as the eighth highest grosser released in 2017. The action-comedy, starring Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart, has won the first two weekends of 2018 after debuting Dec. 20 in the shadow of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” — and began significantly outperforming forecasts.

Jumanji” has been the key factor in keeping overall business for the four days solid in the $197 million to $200 million range, up at least $10 million from the 2017 total. That leaves the year-to-date domestic total at $560 million through Monday — 4.9% ahead of the same point last year, according to comScore.

‘Jumanji’ Sequel and ‘The Greatest Showman’ Boost 2018 Box Office

  • Indiewire
“Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” (Sony) easily bested all comers on its fourth weekend, and sustained the 2018 box office upswing. The shockingly successful reboot is just $50 million away from landing in the top-five grossers of 2017. A $350-million total won’t come near to challenging the $600 million-plus final tally for “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” which is 2017’s top performer both domestic and globally, with a worldwide total of over $1.3 billion.

A weekend result that puts the Dwayne Johnson family fantasy $15-million ahead of the latest “Star Wars” juggernaut suggests the days may be waning for “Star Wars” as the dominant franchise far above all the rest. For the first time, its fifth weekend fell below the comparable “Rogue One” last year.

And yet overall grosses are up — if not at the level of last week’s 20 per cent increase. This weekend’s overall results are close to a carbon copy

‘Jumanji’ Ruling Mlk Weekend Box Office Over ‘The Post,’ ‘Paddington 2,’ ‘Proud Mary’
Sony’s “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” is outdistancing a quartet of challengers and should win the Martin Luther King Jr. weekend with about $28 million at the North American box office, early estimates showed Friday.

Steven Spielberg’s “The Post” appears to be leading the rest of the pack with around $21 million for the four days, according to Friday’s first forecasts, followed by the openings of “Paddington 2” with $18 million and Taraji P. Henson’s “Proud Mary” battling “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” for fourth place with about $16 million each.

Blumhouse’s Truth or Dare Release Date Moved Up Two Weeks

Universal announced that Blumhouse Productions’ Truth or Dare has moved its release date up two weeks. It’s getting harder and harder to doubt Blumhouse in the midst of its recent hot streak, as the studio continues to churn out high-quality, original films on economical budgets. The return on investment has been tremendous for recent hits like Split, Happy Death Day, and especially Jordan Peele’s Get Out. Most recently, Insidious: The Last Key has grossed over $54 million worldwide on a $10 million budget in just its first week of release.

Insidious: The Last Key review

What looks like the final chapter in the Insidious saga arrives in cinemas - but is it a good January horror?

The original Insidious (2011) was a welcome return to indie horror form for director James Wan and writer Leigh Whannell, who followed up their original breakthrough film, Saw, with a couple of misguided and forgettable excursions into major studio territory (anyone remember Dead Silence?). Insidious was intimate, original, a little insane and genuinely creepy; it established some of the stylistic and narrative devices that Wan would utilize for large-scale horror success with The Conjuring a couple of years later.

It was also a hit, which meant the 'we have a new horror franchise!' signs lit up at the offices of original backer Film District. So Insidious 2 came along in 2013, with Wan and Whannell taking up camera and pen again, but it proved to be an unnecessary, overplotted and often

The ‘Insidious’ & ‘Sinister’ Movies May Crossover

The movie crossover is fast becoming the latest trend in Hollywood. The most recent example of this, which is probably its most high-profile is the M. Night Shyamalan movies Split and Unbreakable, two stand-alone films, which will cross paths in the forthcoming Glass, which is now in post-production and due in January 2019. Well, it looks like two very successful horror series are potentially set to collide in a new movie.

Producer Jason Blum was asked about a potential crossover while out and about promoting the fourth film in the Insidious series, Insidious: The Last Key, which arrives at the weekend. It all sounds like this has already been discussed. The producer spoke with Cinepop:

“I hope so. I want to. We almost did Insidious and Sinister and I still feel like we might do that so, I think so. I think we’re going to cross our worlds at some point.

Cinepolis Rolls Out Haptic Version of Sony’s ‘Insidious: The Last Key’

Cinepolis, the largest movie circuit in Mexico, has launched a version of “Insidious: The Last Key” with full-motion, sensory effects.

The so-called haptic technology was demonstrated last month at the CineAsia convention in Hong Kong. It delivers tactile sensations concurrent with the narrative of the film through vests that users wear.

The world’s fourth largest exhibition company, Cinepolis gave the technology a platform release within its VIP theatre, starting Jan. 4. It prioritized press, loyalty scheme members, contest winners and social influencers. The rollout was supported on Ooh and social media platforms. And Sony reports that demand was strong enough for additional screenings of the haptic version to be added.

The technology was developed by Sony Corp, Sony Pcl and Sony Pictures. It had an earlier run out at the 2016 edition of CineAsia. There it demonstrated a short-form immersive experience, that built on Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, the latest instalment of the studio’s “Resident Evil” franchise

Box Office: ‘Jumanji’ to Roar Past Newcomers ‘Paddington 2,’ ‘Proud Mary,’ ‘Commuter’
Sony’s hit “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” will face a trio of newcomers at domestic multiplexes over the four-day Martin Luther King weekend — “Paddington 2,” Liam Neeson’s “The Commuter,” and Taraji P. Henson’s “Proud Mary.”

Additionally, Steven Spielberg’s journalism drama “The Post” is going wide on Friday as awards season kicks into high gear. The fifth weekend of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” should still be a competitor, with $574 million already banked domestically, along with the second session of “Insidious: The Last Key.”

Projections place “Jumanji” as the clear leader with as much as $30 million over the Friday-Monday period. The top end of forecasts put “Paddington 2,” “The Post,” and “Proud Mary” each in the $23 million to $25 million range, while their respective studios project $15 million to $18 million. “The Commuter” appears to be heading slightly lower.

“Jumanji,” which scored an impressive $37.3 million last weekend to win the first 2018 session handily, will probably
