By Daniel Garris

Weekend Actuals Update:

With actuals now in, Sony’s Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle came in very close to yesterday’s estimate with a first place take of $10.930 M. Fox’s Maze Runner: The Death Cure was up a bit from yesterday’s estimate to take second with $10.475 M, while Lionsgate and CBS Films’ Winchester was up slightly from its estimate with a third place debut of $9.308 M.

Other weekend actuals for the frame include: The Greatest Showman ($7.696 M), The Post ($5.218 M), Hostiles ($5.108 M), 12 Strong ($4.706 M), Den of Thieves ($4.551 M), The Shape of Water ($4.449 M), Paddington 2 ($3.277 M) and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri ($3.013 M).

Weekend Estimates Update:

Sony’s Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle returned to first place at the box office over Super Bowl weekend with an estimated $11.00 M. That makes Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle the first December wide release to lead a February weekend since Titanic way back in 1998. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle declined 31.9 percent from last weekend, which represented a healthy Super Bowl weekend hold. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle has grossed an exceptional $352.64 M through 47 days of release. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is currently the third highest grossing film ever domestically for Sony and the fifth highest grossing release of 2017 to date.

Internationally, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle passed the $500 M international mark this weekend after grossing an estimated $12.6 M. To date, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle has grossed $503.1 M internationally and a massive $855.7 M globally. Current international totals for Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle include $74.6 M in China, $47.9 M in the U.K., $36.3 M in Australia, $27.1 M in France, $24.9 M in Russia, $22.2 M in Brazil, $20.9 M in Germany and $19.1 M in Mexico.

Fox’s Maze Runner: The Death Cure was down one spot from last weekend to place in a close second with an estimated $10.20 M. Maze Runner: The Death Cure was down a sharp 57.8 percent this weekend. In comparison, 2015’s Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials declined 52.9 percent in its second weekend to gross $14.27 M. Maze Runner: The Death Cure has grossed $39.76 M in ten days. That is in line with expectations, but also places the film 23.5 percent behind the $51.96 M ten-day take of Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials.

Maze Runner: The Death Cure remained far stronger internationally with an estimated $35.20 M this weekend. That brings the film’s international total to a healthy $142.9 M and current global haul to $182.6 M. International debuts for Maze Runner: The Death Cure this weekend included $3.10 M in Mexico, $2.53 M in Germany and $1.44 M in Italy. International totals to date for the film include $37.0 M in China, $17.0 M in South Korea, $7.4 M in Russia, $6.8 M in Australia and $5.9 M in the U.K.

Lionsgate and CBS Films’ Winchester debuted in third place with an estimated $9.25 M. The PG-13 rated horror film starring Helen Mirren performed in line with its modest expectations. Compared to other PG-13 rated horror fare to open over Super Bowl weekend in recent years, Winchester was 73.7 percent stronger than the $5.32 M start of 2016’s Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and 28.9 percent softer than the $13.00 M debut of last year’s Rings. Potential for Winchester appears to have been limited a bit by the film’s poor critical reviews and by the film not having the typical appeal of a PG-13 horror film with younger moviegoers (64 percent of the film’s audience was over the age of 25).

Winchester started out with $3.61 M on Friday (which included an estimated $615 K from Thursday night shows that began at 7 PM, increased a solid 14.5 percent on Saturday to take in $4.13 M and is estimated to decline 63.3 percent on Super Bowl Sunday to gross $1.51 M. Winchester looks to be going over much better with audiences than with critics, as the film received a B- rating on CinemaScore, which is respectable for a horror film.

Fox’s The Greatest Showman remained in fourth place this weekend with an estimated $7.80 M. With the aid of playing on IMAX screens this weekend, The Greatest Showman declined just 18.3 percent from last weekend. The Greatest Showman continues to steadily pad its status as one of 2017’s bigger surprises with a 47-day total of $137.48 M. That gives the film a whopping current total gross to opening weekend ratio of 15.61 to 1. Internationally, The Greatest Showman took in an estimated $16.15 M this weekend. That places the film’s international total at $153.0 M and current global total at $290.5 M.

Entertainment Studios Motion Pictures’ Hostiles and Fox’s The Post claimed fifth and sixth place with respective weekend estimates of $5.52 M and $5.20 M. Hostiles was down 45.4 percent from last weekend’s first weekend of wide release, while The Post declined 42.9 percent. Both films had respectable holds this weekend given the competition from Super Bowl LII. Respective total grosses stand at $67.18 M for The Post and at $21.24 M for Hostiles.

Warner’s 12 Strong and STXfilms’ Den of Thieves remained very close to one another with respective seventh and eighth place takes of $4.71 M and $4.67 M. 12 Strong was down 45.8 percent from last weekend, while Den of Thieves was down a very similar 45.9 percent. Respective 17-day totals stand at $37.30 M for 12 Strong and at $36.27 M for Den of Thieves, as totals for the two films are currently separated by just $1.03 M.

Fox Searchlight’s pair of Best Picture nominees, The Shape of Water and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, finished in ninth and eleventh place with respective estimated grosses of $4.30 M and $3.05 M. Thanks in part to continued awards season buzz and further theatre expansions, The Shape of Water was down only 27.4 percent from last weekend, while Three Billboards was down an even slimmer 20.6 percent. Respective total grosses stands at $44.58 M for The Shape of Water and at $41.81 M for Three Billboards.

Internationally, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri grossed an estimated $8.07 M this weekend, while The Shape of Water took in an estimated $4.41 M. Respective international totals stand at $46.0 M for Three Billboards and at $19.6 M for The Shape of Water. Respective current global totals are $87.9 M for Three Billboards and $64.2 M for The Shape of Water.
