The Death Cure was originally set to hit theaters a year ago, but its release was delayed when franchise star Dylan O'Brien was injured while filming. Based on these numbers it becomes clear the franchise failed to gain much of an audience outside the core fanbase and the on-set injury to star Dylan O'Brien, which delayed the film's release by almost a year, didn't help either.
The third and final film of the Maze Runner trilogy, Maze Runner: The Death Cure, didn't match the opening weekend numbers of either of the first two films. The Death Cure, which also stars Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Kaya Scodelario, Patricia Clarkson, and Walton Goggins, has received mixed to negative reviews from critics and now sits at a 44 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.
The sixth weekend of "Jumanji" will likely finish at around $15 million at 3,553 sites, giving it $337 million domestically after 40 days - topping Sony's "Spider-Man: Homecoming" for 49th place on the all-time list.
Overall domestic business was solid rather than spectacular with $139 million, down 2.5 percent from the same weekend previous year, according to comScore.
In first place, took in a higher-than-expected $23.5 million. The Pentagon Papers drama, starring Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks, fell 24 percent, compared to almost 40 percent last weekend. Starring Christian Bale, Wes Studi, and Rosamund Pike, and directed by Scott Cooper (Black Mass), the frontier drama will have grossed about $12.1 million since beginning its rollout in late December. Three dramas with varied production budgets, each nominated for best picture at the coming Oscars - "The Post", "The Shape of Water" and "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" - took in an additional $18.2 million for Fox and its specialty label, Fox Searchlight. The adult fairy tale took in $5.7 million, by far its strongest weekend to (put another way, it was up 160 percent).
Disney's/Lucasfilms' Star Wars: The Last Jedi is still clinging on six weeks after release with a weekend total of $4.3 million in North America.
Rounding out the Fox portfolio was the animated "Ferdinand", which collected about $1 million, for a new total of $80.5 million. Phantom Thread and Darkest Hour, both from Focus Features, each earned $2.9 million, followed by $1.3 million for Call Me by Your Name.
