'Jumanji' reboot reigns again at the box office

February 05, 2018 - 7:28 pm

NEW YORK (AP) — On a typically sluggish Super Bowl weekend, Sony Pictures' "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" topped the North American box office for the fourth time in seven weeks.

The runaway hit, a reboot starring Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart, sold $10.9 million in tickets in its seventh weekend of release, according to final figures Monday.

Sliding to second was last week's No. 1 film, "Maze Runner: The Death Cure." The third installment in the young adult sci-fi trilogy earned $10.5 million in its second week. The film's modest domestic performance has been partly alleviated by stronger sales abroad, where it has grossed $142.9 million.

The lone new wide release to compete with the Super Bowl was the Lionsgate-CBS Films supernatural thriller "Winchester," starring Helen Mirren. It debuted in third, with $9.3 million.
