BOXOFFICE JOLT: 'STAR WARS' FALLS TO 2ND PLACE — AFTER ONLY 18 DAYS

Unhappy New Years Day: “Last Jedi” Knocked Off Number 1 by “Jumanji” Reboot

It seems like New Years Day was an unhappy one for “The Last Jedi.”
On its 18th day of release, the latest “Star Wars” movie was supplanted at number 1 on the box office chart by the reboot of “Jumanji.”
“Jedi” took in $15.7 million. “Jumanji” scored over $16.1 million. “Jumanji” is in its 13th day of release.
For “Jedi,” losing number 1 less than three weeks after release is a little surprising. But as I’ve told you right along, the new “Star Wars” movie hasn’t been keeping pace with its predecessor, “The Force Awakens.”
