Disney's 'Last Jedi' Tops $100 Million Again

Updated on

The latest “Star Wars” movie once again led the box office, topping $100 million in revenues for the second weekend in a row. But five new releases over the Christmas holidays gave more-earthbound fans plenty of alternatives, including a remake of “Jumanji,” a Matt Damon fantasy-comedy, and a picture about circus showman P.T. Barnum.

“Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” Walt Disney Co.’s space adventure, tallied $100.7 million in North American ticket sales, according to estimates Monday from researcher ComScore Inc. After opening Wednesday, Sony Corp.’s “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle,” collected Friday-to-Monday revenue of $50.4 million, beating estimates.
