‘Jumanji: The Next Level‘ the sequel to the 2017 hit ‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle‘ will hit theaters December 13, 2019.
And according to the early tracking reports, it could make between $40 to $50 million during its opening weekend. A $50 million opening would be decent. We say decent because the movie is working with a budget over $125 million.
But what’s interesting is that Sony is being cautious with their in-house predictions. They claim they’re only expecting around $35 million.
And honestly, that would be a little disappointing. I mean, the movie stars Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Nick Jonas, Danny Glover, Danny DeVito, and worked with a pretty high budget! A $35 million opening would be *insert fart noise here*
‘Welcome to the Jungle’ made $36 million in its opening weekend, but it had a long life inside theaters, thanks to the positive word of mouth. It ended up almost making $1 billion worldwide.
So if this sequel does open to just $35 million, the studio better pray that word of mouth carries it once again.[mashshare]
