'Jumanji' takes down 'The Last Jedi' to win the weekend box office

The Sony smash averaged $9,471 per theater - an incredible figure for any film's third weekend. Domestic cume thus far is $244.37m. The Universal and Blumhouse Pictures film even outperformed the third chapter in the series. Despite Disney's best efforts to excite the nation, China simply doesn't have the somewhat requisite nostalgia for the franchise and a popular local comedy has been dominating its box office.

Taking second place is Universal's The Last Key, which marks the fourth installment of the Insidious horror franchise and is on pace to gross about $29.3 million. Just last week, The Last Jedi entered the top 20 all-time earners at the global box office. Four films into a series, this usually does not happen. "Ferdinand" (PG) 4, 6:30. Those who saw it generally seemed to like it; the film has a 60% positive rating among Rotten Tomatoes users and a B- CinemaScore. The new Insidious had broad appeal as studio data indicated that the crowd was split 51/49 female/male. Jumanji got off to a solid start two weekends ago with $36.2 million but has since picked up more and more steam throughout the holiday weekend. It's the latest horror title from Blumhouse Productions, which delivered low-priced horror hits previous year for Universal with "Split", "Get Out", and "Happy Death Day". As of yet, neither the Original Trilogy, the Prequels, The Force Awakens or Rogue One are available on 4K Ultra HD. The Hugh Jackman musical has grossed $75.9m and its holds have been surprisingly good.

One thing that is especially interesting here is the mention that Star Wars: The Last Jedi will also be available on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, in addition to regular Blu-ray and plain old, you-should-really-upgrade-by-now, DVD. The doll has been recognized as the first fashionable peripheral product related to the film in 2018 since its launch in the Chinese market. The $40.2 million opening for 'Chapter 2' still takes the cake for this franchise, but "The Last Key" is already a financial success. But even recent action films Geostorm and The Mummy opened better in China. Combined, that means Star Wars 8 has earned $1.2 billion worldwide and still has some time left to increase its haul. The film is now looking at around $45 million, with more possible if Oldman picks up award wins.
