WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle climbs back to the top of the chart on the traditionally slow SuperBowl weekend with another 11MM on a leggy 32 percent drop. It's Sony's third-biggest hit ever, behind the first two Spider-Man movies. The Maze Runner: The Death Cure places with 10.2MM on a not-so-leggy 58 percent drop. The debut of Winchester shows with 9.3MM and likely dies next weekend when a normal slate of movies are released. The Greatest Showman remains in fourth on arguably one of the leggiest performances of all time (leggier than Titanic, albeit with lower overall numbers). Hostiles round out the Top Five with 5.5MM on a 45 percent drop; it's now in danger of not recouping its budget domestically.
