At 2nd place is Peter Rabbit. Will Gluck directed the film and it stars James Corden, Domhnall Gleeson, Rose Byrne, Sam Neill, Daisy Ridley, and Margot Robbie. It took $25 million.
The Third Spot goes to The 15:17 to Paris. Clint Eastwood directed the movie with the real life people that rescued the train riders from terrorism. It made $12.6 million and grossed $5.3 million from 23 markets.
And Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle took the fourth spot, making $9.8 million for a total of $881.8 million (domestic and international). It has passed Spider-man:Homecoming and SPECTRE to become Sony's third-biggest worldwide release of all time. And to think all of this started with an author and a story idea that he wrote down and published to the masses.
The Maze Runner: The Death Cure took sixth place as it made $6 million to bring in a total of $229 million. Bear in mind that the movie was made for just $62 million.
Great to see all these movies, based on books, doing so well in Hollywood. Fifty Shades trilogy started as self-published novels. I hope more self-published novels would get recognized because there are several great, self-published stories out there, even more interesting than Fifty Shades trilogy, and from all sort of genres. It's great that these movies are doing excellent and I know that those who are watching it are also checking out the source material. So, take care everyone and I hope you have a blessed day.
