This past weekend the horror movie The Grudge was released. The Grudge is a reboot that no one needed, it failed to gross more than $15 million, it brought in an estimated $11.3 million. Frozen II grossed just a little less than this movie in its seventh week. That shows almost the same amount of people wanted to rewatch a children’s movie, then watch the newest movie at the theater.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker took the top spot this weekend. I did call it last week, there really was no competition this weekend. It grossed an estimated $33.7 million in its third weekend. The movie still has the opportunity to pass the billion mark in the next week. Jumanji: The Next Level continued to add money to its ever-growing final numbers. This movie grossed $26.5 million this past weekend, it continues to do well despite the fact it came out against Star Wars. It’s currently sitting at $610 million worldwide, just a little under what the second movie finished with at $962 million.

Like a Boss, Underwater, Just Mercy, and 1917 all come out next week in a large number of theaters.
