Weekend Box Office Report: February 2-4, 2018

Jumanji jumps back to the top!

Audiences headed back to the wilderness on this Super Bowl weekend as JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE returned to number one at the box office with an estimated $11 million!

After stepping to second last weekend, the PG-13 adventure took advantage of quiet theater business to surge back into first place on its seventh weekend in release (four of which have been on top).

The action-fantasy with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Karen Gillan, Kevin Hart and Jack Black has now collected $352.6 million domestic, bringing it just short of the $353 million final tally of The Rock's FURIOUS 7. The sequel has also reached $855 million worldwide, on a reported cost of $90 million.

Trilogy-ender MAZE RUNNER: THE DEATH CURE dropped to second place with $10.2 million, losing 58% from its opening last weekend. The post-apocalyptic young-adult sequel has a ten-day domestic total of $39.7 million and a worldwide total of $182 million (on a $62 million reported cost).

Opening in third place was the new supernatural horror movie WINCHESTER with $9.2 million.

The PG-13 haunted house story with Helen Mirren and Jason Clarke didn't scare up many positive reviews, currently holding a frightening 9% average on Rotten Tomatoes (the JoBlo review is HERE).

Hugh Jackman's ringleader THE GREATEST SHOWMAN continued entertaining in fourth place with another $7.8 million. The irrepresible circus musical has slowly gathered $137.4 million domestic over seven weeks, with a global total nearing $300 million.

In fifth place was the Christian Bale Western HOSTILES with $5.5 million, slowing its gallop by 45% from last weekend's wide release. The R-rated period drama from filmmaker Scott Cooper has a domestic total of $21.2 million (on a reported $39 million cost).

Steven Spielberg's THE POST was in sixth with $5.2 million as the $50 million Tom Hanks/Meryl Streep journalist drama has arrived at $107 million worldwide.

The Chris Hemsworth military drama 12 STRONG was in seventh with $4.7 million, closely followed again by the Gerard Butler crime-thriller DEN OF THIEVES with $4.6 million in eighth.

Oscar contender THE SHAPE OF WATER was swimming steadily in ninth place with $4.3 million. Guillermo del Toro's R-rated fishman romance has grabbed $44.5 million domestic and $64 million worldwide to date (on a $19 million reported cost).

Family-friendly sequel PADDINGTON 2 closed out the list with $3.1 million as the talking bear gets close to $200 million worldwide.

Outside the chart, Bollywood epic PADMAAVAT slipped away, while Pixar's COCO crossed $700 million worldwide and Oscar Best Picture nominees THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI, DARKEST HOUR and PHANTOM THREAD continue to attract moviegoers ahead of the Academy Awards ceremony on March 4th.

Next weekend has the BDSM sequel FIFTY SHADES FREED, the family movie PETER RABBIT and Clint Eastwood's train-terrorism true tale THE 15:17 TO PARIS.
