Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle has finally hit the screen today. The film remained the most awaited movie of the year and if you look at the box office, the film has already scored well over the countries like the US and other places. If you talk about the collection at the box office in North America, it has estimated to reach around 7 million USD on its opening day as per the Hollywood site in the US. Now, if you talk about the collection in India, the film had a decent review and collection as well. Right from the first show, the occupancy report has been decent that went to around 70 percent.
With passage of time, the occupancy went on to soar reaching to 100 percent at most of the places particularly at the multiplexes at the major cities of the country. Even the single screens seem to have done well over the box office. The film in India was released in around 1000 screens as most of the screens are busy with Salman Khan movie which is still earning big. However, with Jumanji releasing this Friday, the film has hampered the sequel to some extent. The film is likely to dominate during the first weekend as well.
Now, talking over the moot point, the film has done well in India. As per reports, the 1st day box office collection for Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle has tolled to around 8.5 crores on the first day and it is likely to increase in the first weekend as well. The film is likely to collect around 20 crores at the end of the first weekend.
