Daily Box Office Report
Wednesday, December 20, 2017




By Daniel Garris

Star Wars: The Last Jedi took in $16.890 M domestically on Wednesday. Star Wars: The Last Jedi declined 16.6 percent from Tuesday’s performance. That represented one of the day’s better daily percentage holds among wide releases, as Sony’s Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and Fox’s The Greatest Showman both entering the marketplace yesterday clearly took a toll on most holdovers. In comparison, last year’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story fell a similar 14.9 percent on its first Wednesday to gross $14.966 M, while 2015’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens increased 1.8 percent to take in a massive $38.022 M.

The six-day domestic start for Star Wars: The Last Jedi stands at $278.710 M. The film is running 35.8 percent ahead of the $205.227 M six-day haul of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and 23.3 percent behind the $363.460 M six-day launch of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Star Wars: The Last Jedi registered the second largest six-day start of all-time (behind only Star Wars: The Force Awakens and just ahead of the $278.389 M six-day take of 2015’s Jurassic World). Yesterday Star Wars: The Last Jedi passed by Despicable Me 3 to move into seventh place among 2017 releases to date domestically.

Internationally, Star Wars: The Last Jedi grossed an estimated $20.3 M on Wednesday. That brings the film’s international total to $295.0 M and current global haul to $573.7 M. Today Star Wars: The Last Jedi is set to surpass both the $300 M international mark and the $600 M global mark. International totals for Star Wars: The Last Jedi through Wednesday include $50.1 M in the U.K, $29.8 M in Germany, $22.8 M in France, $21.3 M in Australia, $19.6 M in Japan, $10.4 M in Spain, $9.9 M in Brazil, $9.7 M in Russia, $8.7 M in Mexico and $8.6 M in Italy.

In other box office news on Wednesday, Sony’s Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle was off to a very promising domestic start with $7.208 M to place in second for the day. With the addition of an estimated $1.9 M from the film’s preview screenings on Friday, December 8, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle has grossed $9.108 M to date. Yesterday’s performance was made more impressive when considering that Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle didn’t have the aid of Tuesday night previews.

Compared to last year’s pre-Christmas Wednesday openers, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle opened 75.5 percent ahead of the $4.107 M opening day take of Passengers and 34.5 percent behind the $11.010 M opening day gross of Sing. It should be noted that both of those films had the added advantage of Tuesday night previews. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle received a healthy A- rating on CinemaScore and has been well received by critics.

Fox’s The Greatest Showman debuted in third place on Wednesday with a respectable $2.451 M. In comparison to previous pre-Christmas Wednesday openers, that was 6.4 percent ahead of the $2.304 M grossed by 2015’s The Big Short on its first day of wide release and 40.3 percent below the mentioned $4.107 M opening day gross of last year’s Passengers. Like Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, The Greatest Showman didn’t have the added advantage of Tuesday night preview shows. Critical reviews for The Hugh Jackman led The Greatest Showman have been mixed, but the film looks to be going over far better with initial audiences as it received a strong A rating on CinemaScore.

Fellow Fox release Ferdinand was down two spots and 23.4 percent from Tuesday to take fourth place on Wednesday with $1.383 M. Ferdinand continues to run below expectations with $17.795 M in six days, but is highly likely to hold up very well throughout the holiday season. The six-day start for Ferdinand is 8.0 percent ahead of the $16.473 M six-day take of 2006’s Charlotte’s Web and 27.9 percent behind the $24.679 M six-day gross of 2015’s Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip.

Disney’s Coco was down two places from Tuesday to round out Wednesday’s top five with $1.192 M. Coco decreased 30.1 percent from Tuesday and increased an impressive 0.3 percent over last Wednesday (when the film was playing in 872 more locations). Coco has grossed an impressive $154.806 M in 29 days and like Ferdinand, should hold up well throughout the rest of the holiday season.
