There is just no stopping "Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle", as it managed to increase the estimate for this four day weekend to $34 million. The Sony Pictures release is now approaching $300 million domestically and, after grossing $40 million in China this weekend, a worldwide total of $667 million.
"The Post", starring Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep in a story about the 1971 publication of the Pentagon Papers, attracted an older audience with 66 percent over 35. Twentieth Century Fox is forecasting $18.6 million for the weekend.
"The Post" opened on December 22 and had taken in just $4.3 million in sales heading into the weekend, including $1.7 million during January 5-7.
"Proud Mary", on the other hand, has a much bleaker outlook, making just $11.5 million from 2,125 screens with a B+ on CinemaScore and a 23 percent RT score.

"This box office trajectory of "Jumanji" is somewhat unprecedented and certainly unexpected", said Dergarabedian. It received an A Cinemascore with ComScore's PostTrak audience survey showing solid response with 63 percent rating the drama a "definite recommend" - indicating strong playability in coming weeks, according to Chris Aronson, president of domestic distribution. Warner Bros. acquired the North American rights for the sequel film, starring the popular British children's literary character, from the Weinstein Company in November after the sexual harassment allegations against former head Harvey Weinstein left the production company and distributor a toxic name. Not even Star Wars: The Last Jedi has been able to halt its run. The Disney release, which added $11.3 million in its fifth weekend, has grossed $591.5 million in the US and Canada, ranking it as the sixth highest grossing film of all time domestically.
This week, Star Wars: The Last Jedi also moved up to 10th place on the list of the world's highest-earning films, having made $1.2 billion total so far.
But, perhaps suffering from effects of a backlash from some fans, "The Last Jedi" hasn't inspired the kind of repeat viewing that "The Force Awakens" did. It was forecast to take in $16 million over three days and $20 million over four, according to Box Office Mojo. Where available, the latest global numbers for Friday through Sunday are also included.
Fox is also getting great word of mouth for "The Greatest Showman", which continues to hang tough in the top five with a $15 million four-day weekend.
