As “Star Wars” begins to fade out of the box office conversation, the focus now shifts to “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle,” which has performed beyond many analysts expectations and is now reaching revenue levels equal to that of some superhero films. After five weekends in theaters, the numbers for the sequel to Robin Williams’ 1995 adventure film sit at $316.5 million domestic and $767 million worldwide, good for seventh and eleventh respectively among all 2017 releases. “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” was expected to be the big moneymaker of the holiday season, but “Jumanji” has been the surprise, pushing Sony’s 2017 domestic revenue above $1 billion, the first time the studio has reached that level since 2014.
