Box-Office: “Jumanji” Soars, “Jewell” Bombs

Box Office Jumanji Gems Soar Jewell Bombs

It was a busy weekend at the box-office with multiple titles hitting – many soaring to stronger than expected results whilst one or two crashed and burned.

Unsurprisingly, Sony’s “Jumanji: The Next Level” finally knocked the “Frozen” sequel off the top spot – scoring a far better than expected $60.1 million debut and ensuring the franchise will get another sequel down the road. It’s also a big jump on the $36 million opening weekend haul of its predecessor. Overseas, the film scored a further $85 million this weekend and is already at a global total of $213 million so far.

Disney’s “Frozen 2” got knocked down to second, but don’t feel sorry for it. The animated sequel scored $19.2 million in its fourth outing domestically but more importantly, it has now crossed the $1 billion mark globally – the sixth Disney movie to do so this year. “Knives Out” was third with a further $9.25 million and has amassed $162 million worldwide so far – a very good result.

Not faring so well? The latest “Black Christmas” remake and Clint Eastwood’s “Richard Jewell”. Both were tracking for $10-12 million openings each and both are now coming in far under expectations – ‘Jewell’ was fourth with $5 million (the second-worst opening for an Eastwood-directed film ever) and ‘Black’ was fifth with $4.4 million (and snagged a woeful D+ CinemaScore).

Back to what worked well and in limited release, the Safdie brothers’ “Uncut Gems” set a new record for A24 with a $105,100 per-screen average from five theaters. Similarly the Fox News scandal film “Bombshell” snagged a solid $78,000 per-screen average from four theaters. Faring less well was Terence Malick’s new film “A Hidden Life” which scored a $10,400 screen average from five theaters.
