The surprise hit Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle has officially become Sony Pictures’ highest grossing film domestically. Earlier this week, the film crossed the $403.7 million mark to beat out 2000’s Spiderman. The film, starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan, and Jack Black, has made $950 million worldwide.
Jumanji is also the highest grossing film of the three male co-stars’ filmography, Gillan has starred in two Marvel films or else it would likely be hers as well. The film is still the second-highest grossing film globally, behind 2012’s Skyfall.
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle held the top spot at the box office three consecutive weeks following its release. Jumanji was also the first December release to hold #1 on a February weekend since Titanic.
Tom Rothman, chairman of Sony Pictures Motion Picture Group spoke about the film’s success. “Given the length of Columbia Pictures’ esteemed history, this is a cool milestone. It’s a great credit to Jake Kasdan, all the producers, the terrific actors, and everyone at the studio who worked so hard. It gives us a grand target to shoot for with the next one.”
A sequel is in the works but nothing has been officially announced yet.
