“Jumanji” is likely to take in between $15 million to $20 million in its fifth frame, which will lift its total domestic take to around $320 million — making the action-comedy one of the top 60 domestic performers of all time, with plenty of drawing power in the weeks to come. International performance for the Dwayne Johnson-Kevin Hart vehicle has been impressive with $385 million so far.
“12 Strong,” produced by Alcon Entertainment, Black Label Media, and Jerry Bruckheimer, will pose the greater threat, with tracking showing an opening in the $14 million to $17 million range at 3,002 locations — including Imax, premium large format, and Dolby Cinema.

Paul King's second film held further metaphors for immigration and London as a multicultural melting pot, expanding on the themes of the first, but somehow delivering them in an even more poignant fashion. It also had nothing but joy and loveliness to dish out to cinemagoers of all ages, even in its more perilous moments. There's a reason Paddington 2 has gone on to become only the fourth movie ever to score a 100% positive rating on Rotten Tomatoes - it's utterly smashing.

It's become a surprise commercial and critical hit - so what has the new Jumanji film got right?
Spoilers lie ahead for Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle.
Over the weekend, I was back at my local multiplex to see the quite wonderful Coco. On the way in, I saw the manager of said picture palace, and we had a bit of a chat. He’s a friendly man, and just the kind of manager you want: always checks that everyone’s okay, is there if anything goes wrong.
He’s also good for a bit of insider chat, too. And we got talking about Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle.

Liam Neeson’s newest action thriller, The Commuter, debuted with a tangible $16.4 million, which was good enough for third place in this week’s top ten. Meanwhile, the Hugh Jackman vehicle, The Greatest Showman held onto the fourth spot, bringing in $15.3 million to raise its four-week total to $98.4 million. Although Star Wars: Episode VIII—The Last Jedi fell to fifth place just behind The Greatest Showman with $15.3 million, the film’s five-week total of $595.6 million is probably leaving everyone involved with it smiling these days.
“Jumanji” will finish the holiday with $291.6 million in 29 days, now ranking as the eighth highest grosser released in 2017. The action-comedy, starring Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart, has won the first two weekends of 2018 after debuting Dec. 20 in the shadow of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” — and began significantly outperforming forecasts.
“Jumanji” has been the key factor in keeping overall business for the four days solid in the $197 million to $200 million range, up at least $10 million from the 2017 total. That leaves the year-to-date domestic total at $560 million through Monday — 4.9% ahead of the same point last year, according to comScore.
“Jumanji” could win its third straight box office crown during the upcoming weekend when new entries include Warner Bros.’ Afghan war drama “12 Strong,
