'Jumanji 2' rules US Box Office with $60 million opening

It’s shaping up to be a merry holiday season for “Jumanji: The Next Level.” Sony’s adventure sequel debuted in first place to $60.1 million (45 million pounds), dethroning “Frozen” after three consecutive weeks as box office champ.

Those ticket sales, at the higher end of industry projections, represent a healthy jump on its predecessor, 2017’s “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” ($36 million). It also marks the highest debut for a December comedy, as well as the best start for live-action movie for stars Kevin Hart and Jack Black.

It’s a decidedly less jovial time for fellow new movies, Warner Bros. “Richard Jewell” and Universal’s “Black Christmas.” Heading into the weekend, both films were expected to earn at least $10 million. Instead, the pair combined barely hit that number.
