according to the hollywood reporter, in its third weekend, star wars: the last jedi amassed another $19.1 million on friday from 4,232 theaters, bringing its domestic haul to an impressive $483.8 million and $974 million at the worldwide box office. that number is set to rise, however, as the film is estimated to rake in $72 million over the course of the four-day weekend, which should up its domestic total to $537 million through monday. that would bring the film's box office haul to just over $1 billion before international numbers are updated, pushing the film past the lifetime gross of rogue one: a star wars story, which finished with $1.06 billion, but still well below star wars: the force awakens' $2 billion gross.

surprisingly, sony's jumanji: welcome to the jungle has proven to have legs at the box office, just narrowly being beaten out by star wars: the force awakens. in its second weekend, the jumanji reboot managed to take in another $17.8 million on friday from 3,765 locations. it's estimated to finish the weekend with $66 million-plus, bringing its domestic total around $187 million.
