As also does Insidious 4
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle has knocked Star Wars: The Last Jedi off the top of the US Box Office and perhaps unexpectedly, so has Insidious 4.
After three weeks at the top, Rian Johnson's Star Wars movie was felled by the Jumanji reboot, which took $36 million in its opening weekend, according to figures from Box Office Mojo.
In second place was the latest installment in the Insidious franchise, which has proved to be a bit of a hit.
Insidious: The Last Key took $29.6 million, meaning that it also beat out The Last Jedi, which took just $23 million this week.
Given that The Last Jedi has already made over a billion dollars at the worldwide box office, we doubt Disney is too concerned.
Fourth place goes to Hugh Jackman's polarising but no less enjoyable The Greatest Showman ($13.8 millions), and fifth went to Pitch Perfect 3 ($10.2 million).
In at sixth place is John Cena animated vehicle Ferdinand ($7.7 million) and seventh went to Molly's Game ($7 million).
Winston Churchill biopic Darkest Hour came in eighth place, taking $6.4 million and in at nine is the yet-to-be-released-in-the-UK Pixar animation Coco, which took $5.4 million.
Rounding off the top 10 is Ridley Scott's much-discussed All the Money in the World, which famously saw Christopher Plummer replace Kevin Spacey after he was removed from the movie.
