Pitch Perfect 3 and All The Money in the World fail to beat Jumanji at weekend box office

It was the opening weekend for big-budget films Pitch Perfect 3 and All The Money In The World, but both were both unable to knock Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle off the top spot at weekend box office.

All The Money In The World – the film that re-shot its scenes after one of its lead actors Kevin Spacey was accused of sexual misconduct and assault – came in fifth place at its opening weekend. Spacey was replaced by actor Christopher Plummer.

The crime thriller, made by British director Ridley Scott, failed to hit the $1.5m mark on its first weekend, taking in $1.468m in earnings across 223 screens, according to the latest Motion Pictures Distributors Association of Australia report.

The film follows the kidnapping of a 16-year-old boy and the attempts of his mother and grandfather to pay the ransom.

Starring Rebel Wilson, Brittany Snow and Anna Kendrick, Pitch Perfect 3 is set three years after Pitch Perfect 2, with the Bellas all having graduated college and living separate lives. They come together once again for a USO tour – which sees them perform for army troops.

It made $4.647m across 370 screens on its first weekend, taking its total earnings to $10.710m.

In 2015, Pitch Perfect 2 took $9.419m across 427 screens in its opening weekend. In 2012, the original Pitch Perfect made $2.598m in its opening weekend across 290 screens.


Meanwhile Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle entered its second week leading the weekend box office with an additional $6.409m in earnings across 477 screens. Since its premiere, the film has made $27.559m.

In third place was Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which collected another $3m over the weekend. The film has now earned more than $50m at the Australian box office.

Slipping from third to fourth place was Hugh Jackman’s new film The Great Showman. It made $2.949m over the weekend.
