JUMANJI Returns to Top of Box Office on Super Bowl Weekend
It took Jumanji only one week to get back to the top of the domestic box office, overtaking last week’s champ Maze Runner for first place, during the traditionally slow Super Bowl weekend at the box office. The Sony movie continued its very impressive run, dipping less than 40% in its 7th week of release, for a total of $11 million and over $352 million in North America. Another $500 million or so overseas (93 markets) means it is rapidly approach the billion dollar mark.
Meanwhile, the Maze Runner finale had a pretty steep drop, ending around $10 million, good for nearly $40 after ten days in theaters. The only new release of the weekend, the horror movie Winchester starring Helen Mirren, opened to $9.2 million, right around expectations, enough for 3rd place. Meanwhile, the Hugh Jackman musical The Greatest Showman made it to fourth, with $9.2 million, only an 18% drop, and over $137 million total after seven weeks. The legs on this one are strong.
Super Bowl weekend is always a slow one at the box office, and this year was no exception. The top ten movies brought in only $71 million in North America, a low figure by all measures. Hostiles rounds out the top 5 with $5.5 million, and over $21 million total.
Oscar contenders continue to do well at the box office too, with the Steven Spielberg movie The Post in sixth place at $5.2 million and over $62 million total. The Shape of Water was in ninth, with $4.3 million and a theater expansion, enough for over $44 million for a movie made for only $19 million. After the DGA win for director Guillermo del Toro on Saturday, this movie is poised to do well at the Academy Awards next month.
