In second place is the horror film "Insidious: The Final Key", the fourth in the franchise.

Disney-Lucasfilm's "The Last Jedi" followed in third with a 55% decline to $23.6 million at 4,232 venues for a 24-day total of $572.5 million - the sixth-largest of all-time. It was estimated to gross $29.3 million this weekend.

The first significant storm of the season is walloping much of the state with heavy rain, snow and strong winds. The warnings come due to concerns about flooding and debris flows in areas just below the burn areas.

The Aaron Sorkin-directed Molly's Game, starring Jessica Chastain, expanded nationwide in 1,608 theaters and made $2.2 million Friday which should allow it to make $7 million this weekend. Despite this being the fourth film in the franchise, it's one of the best debuts.

"Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle" knocked down "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" from the top spot at the domestic box office. "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" is also topping the $500 million mark worldwide. That's higher than the $22.7 million opening managed by Insidious 3 and way beyond the $13.3 million of the original Insidious (a sleeper hit), but it falls considerably short of Insidious 2, which bowed to $40.3 million in 2013. Either way, Insidious should be able to bring in $26 to 27 million or more by Sunday. It's the latest horror title from Blumhouse Productions, which delivered low-priced horror hits previous year for Universal with "Split", "Get Out", and "Happy Death Day". Universal is the USA theatrical distributor with Sony releasing in the rest of the world. "Showman" grossed $24 million in 74 markets, led by a $3.7 million Russian launch and a $3.3 million second weekend in the United Kingdom, for an overseas total of $74.5 million.
