Jumanji Box Office: Holy Crap, Welcome To The Jungle Is Number One Again
Last week, Jake Kasdan's Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle saw its long reign at the Number One spot come to an end, with Maze Runner: The Death Cure managing to be the first film in three straight weeks to beat it at the box office. Shockingly, however, it turns out that the adventure movie just can't be kept down, as once again it is once again at the top of the charts. Check out the full Top 10 below! When Sony Pictures first put Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle in theaters in early December, many questioned the move. After all, it was positioned just one week after the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which was posed to dominate the box office for weeks. Prognosticators certainly weren't wrong on this front, but what nobody could have predicted is the immensely long legs that the comedy has demonstrated. Jumanji was in second place for its first four weekends, but has been the number one movie for every weekend in 2018 thus far - and is the first December release since 1998 to grab a number one spot at the box office in February (not even Avatar pulled that off).
