JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE Poised To Pass FURIOUS 7 As Dwayne Johnson's Highest Grossing Film Stateside
With another $11.1 million at the weekend box office, Jumnaji: Welcome to the Jungle becomes the first December release to take the No. 1 spot on a February weekend since Titanic did it 20 years ago.
Welcome to the Jungle's weekend numbers bring the movie's cumulative domestic total to $352.7 million which is just $300,000 shy of topping Furious 7 ($353 million) to become star Dwayne Johnson's highest-grossing film ever at the domestic box office. It's expected to surpass Furious 7's domestic total by Monday.
Furious 7 will remain Johnson's top global grossing film with $1.5 billion, but Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle has performed impressively overseas as well, racking up an $855 million worldwide total. It passed Thor: Ragnarok this weekend to claim the No. 8 spot on the 2017 global chart. It currently sits at No. 5 on 2017's domestic chart.
The commercial success of Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle helped boost Sony Pictures to a $93 million quarterly profit. A sequel to the movie, which successfully rebooted the 1995 classic that starred Robin Williams, is already being talked about by Sony execs, though nothing has officially been announced.
