Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle Takes First while Insidious: The Last Key Debuts Strong in Second
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle took first place this past weekend with an estimated $36 million. That brings the domestic total of the film up to $244.4 million and $519.4 million on a $90 million budget.
The sequel has crushed the original which earned $100.5 million domestically and $262.8 million worldwide in 1995. That number’s not adjusted for inflation.
In second place was a new debut, Insidious: The Last Key which earned an estimated $29.3 million domestically and $49.4 million worldwide. For a $10 million budget, that’s a solid debut and makes the film already profitable (most likely). That’s the second highest debut in the four movie franchise. It beat 2015’s Insidious Chapter 3 and was only behind 2013’s Insidious Chapter 2.
In third place was Star Wars: The Last Jedi which dropped from first last week. The film added an estimated $23.6 million to its domestic total bringing that to $572.5 million and $1.205 billion worldwide. The film is $58 million from knocking Beauty and the Beast out of first place as the highest grossing film of 2017.
The film is the second highest domestic gross for a Star Wars film unadjusted for inflation, sixth adjusted for inflation and second for worldwide earnings.
In fourth place was The Greatest Showman which earned an estimated $13.8 million. The film has grossed $75.9 million so far domestically and $150.4 million worldwide.
Rounding out the top five was Pitch Perfect 3 which added $10.2 million to its domestic total. The film has earned $86 million domestically and $141 million worldwide.
When it comes to comic adaptations…
Justice League was #21 for the weekend adding $550,000 to its domestic total bringing it to $227 million and stands at $652.8 million worldwide.
Thor: Ragnarok added $534,000 to its domestic total to bring that domestic total to $312.5 million and worldwide the film has earned $849.8 million.
