  • 'The Last Key' Defeats 'The Last Jedi' at Weekend Box Office

The Rian Johnson directed "Star Wars" eighth episode came in 2nd last weekend when it opened in China. If not for the still strong "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle", which estimates placed at a remarkable $36.0 million in its third weekend, the fourth "Insidious" would have premiered in first place.

Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, and Karen Gillan star in "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle", a sequel to Robin Williams' original, which was a 1995 hit with $262 million worldwide. Over the weekend, "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" has taken out the latest installment in the current "Star Wars" trilogy at the box office after managing to take the top spot two weeks since it started rolling in theaters.

Whatever the reason, "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" (Disney) collapsed in China, the world's second-largest movie market, arriving this weekend to estimated ticket sales over three days of $28.7 million. The movie already earned back its reported production cost of $90 million. Down 55% from last weekend, the eighth chapter in the ongoing Skywalker saga has banked $572.5 million so far. However, horror audiences have been dry for a while at the box office and the Insidious franchise's well-regarded status was enough to overcome the 27% critic average on Rotten Tomatoes. But it's not topping the best opening of the franchise, 2013's "Insidious: Chapter 2" ($40.2 million).

Ferdinand was down 32% in its fourth weekend with $7.7 million, bringing its totals to $70.5 million domestically and $183.3 million from a $111 million budget.

Hong Kong actress Sandra Ng's directorial debut, "Goldbuster", a horror-comedy, pulled in $15.4 million to bring its 10-day total to $54.1 million.

Pitch Perfect 3 rounds out the top five with $10.3 million and stands right at $86 million.

The Winston Churchill film "Darkest Hour" starring Gary Oldman (who is up for a best actor Golden Globe) also added 790 theaters and took in $6.4 million. A rising interest in horror films will mean more horror films.

The Jessica Chastain-led Molly's Game added an additional 1,337 screens and earned $7 million over the weekend, a 198 per cent increase, for a cumulative total of $14.2 million. Worldwide total is $74.49m and global is $150.39m. It's also an effective piece of counterprogramming for young adult audiences not wanting to see the younger-skewing blockbusters or the adult-oriented prestige films.
