‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Falls To ‘Jumanji’ And ‘Insidious’ At Box Office

Star Wars: The Last Jedi’s domestic box office dominance has come to an end, as Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle took the top spot in its third weekend with an estimated $36 million.

With a modest 28 percent drop in performance compared to last weekend, director Jake Kasdan’s successful reboot has now earned a domestic total of $244.4 million.

Most surprisingly, The Last Jedi fell two spots to third place, with Insidious: The Last Key placing second in a strong debut. The fourth entry in the popular Insidious horror series earned an estimated $29.3 million, beating out Insidious: Chapter 3’s $22.7 million debut, but falling short of Chapter 2’s $40.3 million opening earnings.

In addition to strong competition, The Last Jedi also suffered a 55 percent drop from last weekend, taking in an estimated $23.6 million, though it still stands as North America’s highest grossing movie of 2017 with $572.5 million earned to date. Despite a weak opening in China, the latest Star Wars movie just recently reached the $1.2 billion mark in global earnings and currently stands as the 13th highest grossing movie of all time.

Here are the top 10 movies at the North American box office this weekend, according to estimates from Box Office Mojo:

1. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle $36 million

2. Insidious: The Last Key $29.3 million

3. Star Wars: The Last Jedi $23.6 million

4. The Greatest Showman $13.8 million
