Weekend Preview - Not Jumanji?

by The Commish on Thursday, January 25, 2018

It certainly looks like Jumanji’s long reign of terror over the box office is coming to an end.  The latest Maze Runner will take over the top spot, pushing Jumanji down to number two.  Oscar nominations should see a little shake up in the top ten as audiences finally know which movies they need to see.  Look for The Post to move back into the top three.

1. Maze Runner 3 $19 million – bad reviews accompany the delayed finale to the MR franchise, but with the lack of new options should propel it to the top spot.

2. Jumanji $13.5 million – will move into the top five for 2017 sometime this weekend.

3. The Post $9 million

4. 12 Strong $8.5 million – well on its way to a mid-$40 million total.

5. The Greatest Showman $8.5 million – despite it being snubbed of Oscar nominations, it continues to strike a cord with audiences.

6. Den of Thieves $7.5 million – the only question is, will it have the legs to reach $40 million?

7. Paddington 2 $5.5 million – meh

8. The Shape of Water $5 million – added theaters this weekend should mean a return to the top 10.

9. Hostiles $4.5 million – expanding this weekend, unfortunately without Oscar nominations.

10. The Last Jedi $4 million – a last grasp in the top 10.
