WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle threepeats atop the chart with another 20MM on a very leggy 29 percent drop. 12 Strong places with 16.5MM adainst a reported 35MM budget, suggesting it will probably break even or modestly profit. Den of Thieves shows with 15.3MM against a reported 30MM budget, which isn't bad given the lackadaisical marketing effort. The Post takes the fourth slot with 12.2MM on a 37 percent drop and a 45MM total so far against a 50MM budget; it says something about Hollywood and the Oscars that among the likely Best Picture nominees, this one will be the third-highest grosser after Get Out and Dunkirk (and that Dunkirk could easily lose because of the large Oscar voting bloc of actors). The Greatest Showman rounds out the Top Fivewith another 11MM on a mere 12 percent drop; it may say something about film critics that the Tomatometer has this at 55 percent while 90 percent of audiences liked it.
