4-Day Weekend Estimates Update:

Sony’s Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle led the weekend box office for a second consecutive frame with respective estimated three-day and four-day Martin Luther King holiday weekend grosses of $27.04 M and $33.40 M. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle continues to hold up extremely well, as the film was down just 27.4 percent over the three-day frame (with the film’s four-day gross being down a slim 10.3 percent from last weekend’s three-day take). Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is now on the verge of reaching the $300 M domestic milestone, with a significantly stronger than expected 27-day gross of $289.54 M through Monday. That currently ranks Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle as the eighth highest grossing release of 2017 domestically and gives the film an impressive current total gross to opening weekend ratio of 8.01 to 1. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle registered the seventh largest fourth weekend gross of all-time.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle also continued to impress internationally this weekend with an estimated $81.0 M. This weekend saw Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle debut with an estimated $40.0 M in China. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle has grossed $383.0 M to date internationally, which brings the film’s global haul through Sunday to $666.2 M.

Fox and DreamWorks’ The Post claimed second place in its first weekend of wide release with respective three-day and four-day estimates of $18.60 M and $22.20 M. The Steven Spielberg awards season hopeful starring Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks performed in line with consensus expectations. With the addition of $4.49 M from the film’s strong three-week platform run, The Post has grossed $26.69 M through Monday. The $22.20 M four-day weekend performance of The Post was 32.6 percent ahead of the $16.74 M four-day start of 2015’s Bridge of Spies and 24.2 percent below the $29.30 M four-day launch of 2013’s Captain Phillips. The Post has gone over well with critics and looks to be going over well with audiences as well, as the film received a strong A rating on CinemaScore. The Post will look to display strong holding power throughout the rest of the awards season.

Places third through eighth were bunched fairly close together this weekend, as third place and eighth place are currently separated by just $4.0 M over the four-day frame. With that in mind, final rankings could still change a bit between now and the end of Monday, especially for the four-day frame.

Lionsgate’s The Commuter took third place with respective estimated three-day and four-day starts of $13.45 M and $16.00 M. The Commuter opened slightly ahead of pre-release expectations, which made it the only one of this weekend’s four new wide releases to do so. The Liam Neeson led The Commuter is running 34.6 percent ahead of the $11.89 M four-day haul of 2015’s Run All Night and 24.2 percent behind the $21.12 M four-day take of 2012’s The Grey. The Commuter has received a lukewarm reception from critics, but looks to be going over a bit better with audiences as the film received a respectable B rating on CinemaScore.

Disney’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi currently claims sixth place for the three-day frame with an estimated $11.28 M and fourth place for the four-day frame with an estimated $14.73 M. Star Wars: The Last Jedi continues to fall off quickly, as the film’s three-day performance was down a sharp 52.5 percent from last weekend’s three-day frame (with the film’s four-day take being down 37.9 percent from last weekend’s three-day gross). In the bigger picture, Star Wars: The Last Jedi is on the verge of passing the $600 M domestic mark with a massive $595.00 M 32-day gross through Monday. That places Star Wars: The Last Jedi 16.5 percent ahead of the $501.90 M 32-day take of 2016’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Internationally, Star Wars: The Last Jedi grossed an estimated $19.0 M. That places the international total for Star Wars: The Last Jedi at $673.4 M and global total through Sunday at $1.265 B.

Fox’s The Greatest Showman continued to display tremendous holding power this weekend with respective three-day and four-day estimates of $11.80 M and $14.50 M. The Greatest Showman is currently in fifth place for the three-day frame and tied for fifth place over the four-day frame. For the three-day weekend, The Greatest Showman declined a slim 14.3 percent from last weekend, while the film’s four-day take was up 5.3 percent over last weekend’ three-day take. The 27-day total for The Greatest Showman stands at $97.25 M through Sunday. That gives the film a very impressive current total gross to opening weekend ratio of 11.04 to 1 and leaves the film just $2.75 M away from the $100 M domestic mark.

Internationally, The Greatest Showman grossed an estimated $15.25 M this weekend. The Greatest Showman is also displaying very strong holding powers internationally, as the film was down just 13 percent in the U.K. and down 16 percent in Australia. The Greatest Showman has grossed $100.1 M to date internationally and $194.7 M globally through Sunday.

Warner’s Paddington 2 debuted in seventh over the three-day frame with an estimated $10.62 M and is currently tied for fifth over the four-day frame with an estimated $14.50 M. Paddington 2 performed below expectations, which had tended to range from the high teens to low twenties heading into the weekend. The film also opened a soft 43.1 percent below the $25.49 M four-day launch of Paddington over Martin Luther King weekend back in 2015, though Paddington 2 hadn’t been expected to match the opening weekend success of its predecessor.

Despite boasting a rare perfect 100% Tomatometer score on Rotten Tomatoes, audiences weren’t in a rush to catch Paddington 2 this weekend. It’s highly likely that potential for Paddington 2 was limited by the fairly late-starting campaign for the film as a result of Paddington 2 going from The Weinstein Company to Warner Bros. In addition to going over exceptionally well with critics, Paddington 2 looks to be going over well with audiences too, as the film received a strong A rating on CinemaScore. Given the film’s critical ratings and early audience reaction, Paddington 2 is highly likely to display strong holding power going forward.

Universal’s Insidious: The Last Key placed in fourth over the three-day frame with an estimated $12.14 M and in seventh place over the four-day frame with an estimated $14.11 M. While Insidious: The Last Key was down a very sharp 59.0 percent over the three-day frame, that represented a significant improvement on the second weekend percentage holds of both 2013’s Insidious: Chapter 2 (down 65.7 percent to gross $13.80 M) and 2015’s Insidious: Chapter 3 (down 67.8 percent to take in $7.31 M). Insidious: The Last Key continues to significantly exceed expectations with a healthy eleven-day haul of $50.35 M through Monday. That is 31.2 percent ahead of the $38.38 M eleven-day take of Insidious: Chapter 3.

Internationally (where the film is being released by Sony), Insidious: The Last Key remained strong with an estimated $17.7 M. Debut performances for Insidious: The Last Key this weekend included $5.2 M in Indonesia (including previews) and $2.7 M in the U.K. Insidious: The Last Key has grossed $44.2 M to date internationally, which brings the film’s global total at $92.6 M through Sunday.

Sony’s Proud Mary started out in eighth place with respective three-day and four-day grosses of $10.00 M and $12.00 M. The Taraji P. Henson led Proud Mary debuted well below expectations, which like those of Paddington 2, had also tended to range from the high teens to the low twenties heading into the weekend. One bright spot for Proud Mary is that the film carried a reported production budget of just $14 million. Potential for Proud Mary appears to have been limited by the film’s soft critical reviews. Proud Mary looks to be going over much better with audiences, as the film received a solid B+ rating on CinemaScore.

On the platform front, Focus’ Phantom Thread grossed an estimated $1.15 M over the three-day frame from 62 locations, for a per-location average of $18,468. The critically acclaimed Phantom Thread took in an estimated $1.43 M for the four-day frame and has grossed $2.51 M through Monday. Phantom Thread is scheduled to receive a nationwide expansion this coming Friday.
