  • Jumanji The Level

Jumanji: The Next Level Box Office (India): Apart from Rani Mukerji's Mardaani 2 and Emraan Hashmi's The Body, another major release of the week is Dwayne Johnson starrer Jumanji: The Next Level.

The first Jumanji turned out to be a global smash hit, grossing $404.5 million domestically and $962.1 million worldwide.

It is still hard to see "The Next Level" passing the overall totals of "Welcome to the Jungle" considering that it will face heavy competition next week from the release of "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker". "Jumanji" is on its way to achieving that goal, earning an A- on CinemaScore and a 3.5/5 on Postrak. So far, the animated sequel has grossed $366.5 million in the USA and Canada. This unseats "Frozen 2" who has been No. 1 since its release.

Black, a former four-star recruit, was his most productive in 2019, catching 25 passes for 323 yards and a touchdown. Receivers Nico Collins , Donovan Peoples-Jones and Ronnie Bell combined for 1,790 yards and 14 touchdowns.

Jumanji: The Next Level topped the weekend box office in its debut, bringing in $60.1 million, while Clint Eastwood's Richard Jewell underperformed, debuting at the No. 4 spot with just $5 million following a barrage of media controversy over the way it portrayed a journalist.

Lionsgate's "Knives Out", which earned three Golden Globe nominations this past week, is in third with $9.25 million grossed in its third weekend, bringing its domestic total to just under $79 million and its global total to $162.2 million.

Critically, the film is being received fairly well with a 66% rating on Rotten Tomatoes; however, audiences seem to be enjoying it more. "Richard Jewell" will have to hope that Eastwood's popularity among older male audiences will allow it to leg out during the holiday season as a blockbuster alternative.
