'Jumanji' Tops the Box Office for Second Week in a Row

Roger Federer pulled off the ‘Smoldering Intensity’ look

Liam Neeson's latest action flick The Commuter pulled into third place with an estimated $13.45 million from 2,892 stops.

"'Jumanji" has in essence hit the reset button and is now behaving more like a film in its second weekend rather than its fourth", said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst with comScore.

Colder weather, the National Football League playoffs, and overall movie-saturation may have caused this week's slump at the box-office.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle continued to be the King of the North America box office over the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend.

Carillion liquidation puts thousands of jobs at risk
They have indicated an unwillingness to put more money into the company without direct intervention from the government. Carillion's banks are owed about £900m, in the form of overdrafts as well as credit card facilities and other loans.

The film now ranks as the eighth highest grosser of 2017.

"Jumanji", starring Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart, provided the most substantive challenge to "The Last Jedi" after opening December 20.

The post-Golden Globes box-office bump meant that I, Tonya earned $3.3 million, Phantom Thread topped the per-theatre average with $18,468 and a $1.14 million weekend, and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri made the most of it's success with $2.3m, and a total of $28.5 million.

The Post, which recounts how Washington Post publisher Katharine Graham (Meryl Streep) and editor Ben Bradlee (Tom Hanks) joined forces to defy the government and publish the Pentagon Papers, grossed an estimated $18.6 million for the three days as it looks to a four-day gross of $22.2 million. The film kicks off a long-term partnership between Lionsgate and StudioCanal that will continue with "Early Man" and "Shaun the Sheep Movie 2".

Twin bombing kills 16 in Baghdad
According to reports, the twin suicide bombings took place inside central Baghdad's Tayaran Square , reported AFP . Many ambulances had gathered at the site of the bombing and security forces had been deployed in large numbers.

The Commuter is a 2018 action thriller film directed by Jaume Collet-Serra and written by Byron Willinger, Philip de Blasi, and Ryan Engle. "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle", which will finish the holiday with almost $290 million in 29 days, now ranks as the eighth highest grosser released in 2017.

Sony's Jumanji, the comedy-adventure directed by Jake Kasdan and starring Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black and Karen Gillan as the adult avatars of a magical game, took in an estimated $27.03 million for the three days and is projected to collect $33.4 million for the four-day holiday, which would bring its domestic cume to $289.5 million. "The Greatest Showman" was directed by Michael Gracey, the screenplay was written by Jenny Bicks and Bill Condon. The Hugh Jackman film should hit the $100 million milestone by the end of this upcoming week.

Not making the top-five but worth mentioning are the rest of our new-releases. A drastic drop from its $19 million domestic opening the original had in 2015. And Proud Mary is a disastrous non-action movie that was sold as an action movie in light of Atomic Blonde, then couldn't quite get back to what it really is after AB underperformed expectations. Those that did show up gave the film an "A" on CinemaScore, which could help the sequel gain some traction over the next few weekends. You can opt instead to see the crime-drama "Den of Thieves" from Christian Gudegast, that film stars Gerard Butler, Jordan Bridges, and Pablo Schreiber.
