'Jumanji' Overtakes 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' to Land on Top Spot

Jumanji Welcome To The Jungle Has Taken The Indian Box Office By Storm

Most notably, the Stormtrooper doll jointly marketed by Disney and the popular Chinese instant messenger Tencent QQ is the item generating the most sales among China's young Star Wars: The Last Jedi fans. "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" has topped the charts after three weekends in theaters, and newcomer "Insidious: The Last Key" opened in second, pushing "The Last Jedi" into third place. This can be considered a remarkable box office success, considering that the film was made from just $90 million budget.

This is now the highest grossing live-action release for Kevin Hart and is the second highest live-action release for Dwayne Johnson (behind 2015's Furious 7 which grossed $353 million domestically).

Welcome to the Jungle also crossed the $500 million mark at the worldwide box office, making it one of 2017's 20 biggest films worldwide and will likely climb that list a bit in the coming weeks.

It is unusual for the fourth film in a series to pick up steam. 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 Last Jedi's total domestic gross is now at $572.7 million and is now the sixth highest domestic release of all-time. While we don't have any official word yet, early indications point to March 27 as the day Star Wars: The Last Jedi arrives on home video.

Neon Rated's I, Tonya, taking on an additional 193 screens for a total of 242, brought in $2.4 million, a 297 per cent increase.

Internationally, Insidious: The Last Key grossed $20.1 million from 33 markets, notching series-high openings in each. Overseas, the P.T. Barnum tale has grossed $44.2 million so far.

Pitch Perfect 3 dropped to fifth place with $10.2 million for a running USA total of $86 million. The film is now sitting at a very solid $86 million domestically and $141 million worldwide.

Aaron Sorkin's directorial debut Molly's Game, starring Jessica Chastain, was expanded by STXfilms into 1,608 theaters where it grossed an est.

Focus Features continued to expand its WWII drama Darkest Hour, starring recent Golden Globe victor Gary Oldman, and it remained in eighth place with $6.1 million, up 16% from the holiday weekend. While some may have expected more, this is still a massive gross for any film and will challenge Avengers: Age of Ultron for number seven all time.
