Weekend Preview: Jumanji Again

by The Commish on Thursday, January 18, 2018

Jumanji should have enough interest to hold off two new releases and two expansions.  12 Strong should debut in second while The Post will drop to third.

1. Jumanji $17.5 million – looks like it will finish in fifth place for 2017.

2. 12 Strong $13.5 million – reviews aren’t great, it runs a bit long, don’t expect this to break the $40 million mark.

3. The Post $12 million – should continue its successful run.

4. The Greatest Showman $9.5 million – sure looks like its going to beat Transformers for the year.

5. Den of Thieves $7.5 million – reviews are bad and its 140 minutes long… I don’t see it stealing box office dollars from Jumanji.

6. Paddington 2 $7 million – the only question is whether it will make $40 million.

7. The Commuter $6.5 million – looks like a finish around $35 million.

8. The Last Jedi $6 million

9. Insidious Chapter 4 $5.5 million – there’s a chance it finishes in the top 40 for the year, a good pick up in any league.

10. Proud Mary $4.5 million – probably will have trouble finishing above $25 million.
