Los Angeles (February 06, 2018): Sony´s “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” managed the rare feat this weekend of regaining the No. 1 spot in North American box offices in its seventh week out, according to industry estimates.
Taking in $11 million for the three-day weekend, as competition with football´s Super Bowl depressed ticket sales, “Jumanji” became the first film since “Titanic,” in 1998, to win a February weekend after a nationwide release in December, HollywoodReporter.com reported.The family flick, starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Jack Black and Kevin Hart, follows a group of teens who find themselves transported inside the video game world of Jumanji. Its domestic cumulative take of just over $350 million makes it only the third Sony film to reach that mark.Last weekend´s North American leader, Fox´s “Maze Runner: The Death Cure,” slipped to second place with a take of $10.2 million, according to the Exhibitor Relations website. The dystopian sci-fi film follows the harrowing adventures of three teens who have survived a destructive virus infecting the world.
In the third spot was a new release, “Winchester” from Lionsgate, with takings of $9.3 million despite abysmal reviews. (Int. News Agencies)
