#Jumanji Welcome To The Jungle Over Takes #StarWars The Last Jedi

Having had to take second place to Star Wars: The Last Jedi in its first couple of weeks on release, Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle took advantage of a quiet early January weekend to leapfrog into first, earning $36 million according to studio estimates.

That's an impressive feat for the film, which has been scoring well with audiences and earning a solid $244.3 million in the States (and taking in a global total of $519.3 million). And given the film's success so far, that could point to sequel potential, assuming Dwayne Johnson has any time in his schedule within the next decade.

Last Jedi couldn't even settle for second this weekend, also losing out to new horror sequel Insidious: The Last Key. The latest instalment of the scare franchise took in $29.2 million, a good result given its typically thrifty $10 million budget (at least before marketing is taken into account). And it also represents a boost from the third chapter's opening figure. So the most recent Star Wars made do with third place, taking in $23.5 million – though given that the film has already crossed the billion mark worldwide, Disney won't be losing much sleep.

Fourth place was The Greatest Showman, staying in place with $13.8 million, while Pitch Perfect 3 rounded out the top five, earning $10.2 million.

Ferdinand fell a place to sixth, taking in $7.7 million, with Molly's Game expanding its screen count and jumping into the top 10 at 7th on $7 million. Darkest Hour refused to surrender and clung to eighth via a $6.3 million haul, and Coco slipped down the charts to take $5.3 million. Ridley Scott's All The Money In The World still can't seem to catch a break, falling from its seventh place opening spot to 10th and $3.5 million. Not exactly all the money, then: the drama has taken $20.1 million in America thus far.

Three brilliant visionaries set off in a charged battle for the future in THE CURRENT WAR, the epic story of the cutthroat competition that literally lit up the modern world. Benedict Cumberbatch is Thomas Edison, the celebrity inventor on the verge of bringing electricity to Manhattan with his radical new DC technology. On the eve of triumph, his plans are upended by charismatic businessman George Westinghouse (Michael Shannon), who believes he and his partner, the upstart genius Nikolai Tesla (Nicholas Hoult), have a superior idea for how to rapidly electrify America: with AC current. As Edison and Westinghouse grapple for who will power the nation, they spark one of the first and greatest corporate feuds in American history, establishing for future Titans of Industry the need to break all the rules.
