Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle tops $900 million, now Sony’s second biggest movie of all time

Despite competition for tickets ramping up with the release of Marvel’s Black Panther, Sony’s Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle has hit another box office milestone this weekend as the film passed the $900 million mark worldwide.

Domestically, the Jumanji sequel has now earned $377.6 million, making it Sony’s second-biggest North American release of all time behind 2002’s Spider-Man. Internationally, it has amassed $527 million, for a global haul of $904.6 million. Again, that is second only to Skyfall, which Sony distributed in 2012, with the Bond film earning $1.109 billion worldwide.

Welcome to the Jungle has certainly exceeded all expectations, particularly as it has found itself competing with Star Wars: The Last Jedi throughout its run, and Sony will be hoping for a repeat performance with the sequel, which the studio is fast-tracking for release in 2019.

In the brand new adventure Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, the tables are turned as four teenagers

First Look at Terrence Malick’s Vr Experience ‘Together,’ Premiering at SXSW

After experimenting with his form of boundary-pushing, cinema-as-memory films to great, succesful lengths with his last three narrative features–not to mention Voyage of Time, which we’re still awaiting an actual U.S. release for–Terrence Malick will return to more of a traditional script with his WWII drama Radegund, hopefully releasing later this year. But first, after splicing in avant-garde and experiential touches with his last few films, he’s making the natural step into virtual reality.

Premiering at South by Southwest Festival–where he gave a rare public talk last year–on March 13 is the Vr experience Together, which is directed by Malick and shot by cinematographer Rodrigo Prieto (Silence, The Wolf of Wall Street, Brokeback Mountain). Clocking in at 5 minutes and 46 seconds and featuring music by Simon Franglen, see the synopsis below, as well as the first look above.

Together” is a Vr experience about the power of human connection.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle sequel finds its screenwriters

Given that it’s become Sony’s biggest ever non-Spider-Man hit, not to mention the highest-grossing domestic release of Dwayne Johnson’s career, it’s little surprise that the studio is looking to fast track a sequel to the blockbuster adventure comedy Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.

It was announced that month that Sony is planning on getting a sequel into cinemas in 2019, and now Deadline is reporting that Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner have signed on to pen the script, having developed the story with director Jake Kasdan. The duo both contributed to the screenplay for Welcome to the Jungle, and have also worked on another Sony project, the Spider-Man spinoff Venom.

Although Kasdan is yet to sign on to direct the sequel, he is expected to return for the follow-up, which will reunite stars Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black and Karen Gillan.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle set to become Dwayne Johnson’s biggest ever domestic hit

Although it came in for a lot of flak when the project was first announced, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle has proven to be a firm favourite both with critics and audiences alike.

This past weekend it topped the U.S. box office, becoming the first December release to hit #1 in February since James Cameron’s Titanic, and now the film finds itself just $300,000 shy of Furious 7’s $353 million North American haul, meaning it is close to become Dwayne Johnson’s biggest ever domestic hit.

Worldwide, Welcome to the Jungle has pulled in $855.7 million, so it will still trail both The Fate of the Furious ($1.236 billion) and Furious 7 ($1.516 billion) globally. Nevertheless, it’s still proven to be a very welcome hit for Sony, with the studio already announcing that it is in development on a sequel.

Sundance ’18: ‘Hereditary’

Sundance ’18: ‘Hereditary’
By Peter BelsitoI went into this one knowing nothing and was drawn in and surprised.‘Hereditary’ begins in a darkened house attic and camera moves slowly among a collection of doll houses. Keeps going into one doll house then up into it’s attic and stops when the room becomes full frame. Then we realize we’re in the character’s house and world.

Uh oh. Bad things coming.

We’re with the Graham family that starts to unravel following the death of their reclusive grandmother. Even after she’s gone, the matriarch still casts a dark shadow over the family, especially her loner teenage granddaughter, Charlie, whom she always had an unusual fascination with and who is a very strange young girl.

As an overwhelming terror takes over their household, their peaceful existence is ripped apart, forcing their mother to explore a darker realm in order to escape the unfortunate fate they’ve inherited.

Ari Aster's Hereditary Casts a Dark Shadow in this First Trailer

Tagline: "Every Family Tree Hides a Secret." It has been awhile since a very tense horror trailer has come this way. Debuting at the Sundance Film Festival (Jan. 21st), the trailer for Palmstar Media's Hereditary is a shocking one. The film stars: Toni Collette (The Sixth Sense, 1999), Gabriel Byrne, Alex Wolff, Milly Shapiro, Ann Dowd, and Zachary Arthur. In the clip, a family struggles to cope, after the death of their matriarch. The result is a very confusing world. A preview of the film's upcoming U.S. theatrical release is hosted here. The trailer provides a small glimpse at the strange story. It shows characters and animals brutalized, by an invisible force. The synopsis mentions a reclusive grandmother, who casts a "dark shadow (A24)" over the family. Her presence can still be felt as Annie (Collette) struggles to raise her daughter, Charlie (Shapiro). Hereditary will see several theatres this Summer.

Trailer Watch: Toni Collette Is Haunted by Her Mother in Sundance Hit “Hereditary”

“Hereditary”

“My mother was a very secretive and private woman,” Annie (Toni Collette) eulogizes in the trailer for “Hereditary.” “She was a very difficult woman, which maybe explains me.”

The strained relationship between Annie and her late mother, Ellen, weighs heavily on everyone in Ari Aster’s feature directorial debut. While Annie muses about her mom’s “private rituals [and] private friends,” her daughter (Milly Shapiro) becomes obsessed with death, and her son (Alex Wolff) starts experiencing intense, inexplicable seizures. Is it possible that Ellen’s ghost is haunting the family? Or did the matriarch pass down some terrible, all too real genetic trait that’s just now expressing itself?

In 2000 Collette received an Oscar nomination for her supporting role in “The Sixth Sense.” Her other credits include “United States of Tara,” “Enough Said,” and “Fun Mom Dinner.” Collette is currently filming “Wanderlust,” a family drama from Netflix and BBC One.

Sundance 2018 Review: Hereditary is a Confidently Crafted Domestic Nightmare

  • DailyDead
Evil has taken root in the residence of the Graham family in Hereditary, the stunning feature film directorial debut from Ari Aster that’s one-half supernatural spook show, one-half psychological horror, one hundred percent an exercise in nerve-shredding terror. Anchored by incredible performances from Toni Collette (who is working on a level here that is simply beyond any of us mere mortals), Alex Wolff, Gabriel Byrne, and Milly Shapiro, Hereditary is an intimately crafted domestic nightmare in which family ties are wound so tightly, the results are a violently unexpected descent into literal madness and blood-soaked mayhem.

At the start of Hereditary, the Graham family is bidding Annie’s (Collette) mother farewell after she passes away, but not everyone is grieving her death. Odd duck Charlie (Shapiro) misses her grandmother deeply (their unique bond is hinted at later on in the film, and man, is it ever disturbing), but the
