Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle took pole position at the box office for the second weekend in a row with an estimated $28 million. Welcome to the Jungle has made an estimated $675 million worldwide and shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. Checking in on the old king, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, finished sixth, with a respectable $12.1 million. The House of Mouse's cash cow, surpassed the House of Mouse's other cash cow, Beauty and The Beast, over the weekend and is now the highest grossing movie of 2017 with an estimated $1.27 billion dollars.
Of the newcomers to the top ten, Liam Neeson's The Commuter fared best with an estimated $13.7 million-good enough for third. The other two newcomers didn't do nearly as well, and coming in seventh is Paddington 2 with an estimated $10.9 million. The family-friendly U.K. movie just didn't connect with U.S. audiences it seems, despite glowing reviews. Right behind Paddington 2 in eighth place sits Proud Mary, which limped to the box office with an estimated $9.9 million. It doesn't look much better for these films when you consider that four more wide releases will be opening in theaters next weekend.
Next weekend will see the wide release of several high profile films including 12 Strong, Den of Thieves, Forever My Girl, and Hostiles. Making it another crowded and competitive weekend.
