Three sequels occupied the top three spots at the domestic movie ticket sales report Monday, as the four-day holiday weekend wound down.
Disney’s “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” was projected to sell $68.4 million for the Friday through Monday period, and to exceed $533 million domestically since the film opened more than three weeks ago. Add in worldwide sales, and its take was estimated by Disney to have hit $1.05 billion as of Sunday.
Sony’s “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” was projected to have a $66.5 million for the four-day holiday weekend.
And Universal’s “Pitch Perfect 3” looked to have a $21 million weekend, good enough to show third.
Rounding out the 10 most-popular movies, as estimated for the four nights ending Monday evening, and as reported by the studios and gathered by comScore, were “The Greatest Showman” ($20.8 million), “Ferdinand” ($14.6 million), “Coco” ($9.7 million), “Darkest Hour” ($7.6 million), “All the Money In the World” ($7.5 million), “Downsizing” ($6.1 million), and “Father Figures” ($5 million).
