Will 12 Strong Dethrone Jumanji at the Box Office This Weekend?

Will 12 Strong Dethrone Jumanji at the Box Office This Weekend?
After opening behind Star Wars: The Last Jedi in its first two weekends at the box office, Sony's Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle has come on strong by winning its next two frames in a row. This blockbuster adventure faces its biggest test yet this weekend, going up against three newcomers, Warner Bros.' 12 Strong, set in the direct aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Stx Entertainment's Den of Thieves, starring Gerard Butler and 50 Cent, and Roadside Attractions' Forever My Girl, starring Alex Roe and Jessica Rothe. While it certainly may be a close call at the box office this weekend, we're predicting that 12 Strong will barely be able to take down Jumanji with $16.2 million, with Jumanji close behind earning $15.8 million.

Sony's Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle}, another big hit from The Rock (a.k.a. Dwayne Johnson), has been posting minimal decreases over the past two weekends,

Jumanji Swings Past Justice League at the Worldwide Box Office

Sony has found themselves a massive hit with Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. The movie spent its first couple of weekends trailing The Last Jedi, but it's won two straight weeks at the box office and has crossed a pretty surprising milestone. Jumanj has officially passed Justice League at the global box office. That's surprising for an array of reasons, but it, if anything, proves just how reliable The Rock has become in terms of delivering a hit.

With the Mlk weekend box office added in, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle has brought in a grand total of $674.5 million worldwide. That's already a sizable amount more than Warner Bros.' Justice League, which made $654.4 million worldwide during its run. This both indicates how much of a surprise hit the Jumanji sequel has been and how much of a disappointment Justice League was. Especially considering how well Wonder Woman did financially and critically.

How Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle proved doubters wrong

Simon Brew Jan 16, 2018

It's become a surprise commercial and critical hit - so what has the new Jumanji film got right?

Spoilers lie ahead for Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle.

Over the weekend, I was back at my local multiplex to see the quite wonderful Coco. On the way in, I saw the manager of said picture palace, and we had a bit of a chat. He’s a friendly man, and just the kind of manager you want: always checks that everyone’s okay, is there if anything goes wrong.

He’s also good for a bit of insider chat, too. And we got talking about Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle.

I don’t think I was alone in inwardly sighing when I first learned of a reboot/sequel to Jumanji. I don’t hold massive affection for the original (although I thought Zathura was great), but still enjoyed it.

Jumanji holds off The Post and The Commuter to top Mlk weekend

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle enjoyed a second week atop the Us box office, holding off challenges from Steven Spielberg’s The Post, Liam Neeson actioner The Commuter, and the marmalade and sterling snaffling British blockbuster, Paddington 2.

Sony’s surprise seasonal smash-hit Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle earned another estimated $27m, pushing its total towards the $300 million mark. Bonus points were also earned from the film’s opening in China, where it debuted with $40 million, for a worldwide cume of $667 million.

Hoping to make it ‘game over’ for Jumanji was the wide expansion of critically acclaimed Pentagon Papers drama The Post. Steven Spielberg’s potential Oscar botherer raked in an estimated $18.6 million for a second place finish.

This meant that Lionsgate’s Liam Neeson on a train thriller The Commuter (read our review here) had to settle for third, delivering $13.45 million, which is about on-par with the actor’s

Fyc: "Okja" for Best Visual Effects

by Ilich Mejía

With all due respect to Transformers: The Last Night and Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, neither one made me fall in love with a creature forty times my size—mostly because I skipped both, but other reasons, too. Okja's titular superpig, however, had me smitten after her opening scene cavorting across a Korean forest with her best friend, Mija (played by Ahn Seo-hyun, a revelation).
