But before we get to the DJ Khaled horror flick - taking the No. 1 spot for the first time since its release is "Jumanji", bringing in an estimated $36 million in its third week out.

Jumanji was already closing the gap with Star Wars: The Last Jedi last weekend, but yesterday, it surpassed it by $4 million making it clear that audiences love Jumanji, and it's here to stay. The film, which reportedly cost $90 million, has also added about $275 million overseas, for a worldwide total of $519.4 million.

Meanwhile, the latest installment of the horror film franchise, Insidious, scared the iconic science fiction franchise's devotees away from the box office. Insidious: The Final Key, the fourth chapter of the supernatural franchise, took second place in the box office as it spooked moviegoers with its $29.3 million earnings.

That dropped Star Wars: The Last Jedi - another franchise sequel - to third place with $24-million, as the sci-fi thriller's cumulative take surpassed the $570-million mark. "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. The space blockbuster has grossed $572.5 million to date.
