Last Updated Jan 22, 2018 at 7:40 pm PST

NEW YORK, N.Y. – “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” notched its third straight weekend on top of the box office, besting a pair of new releases — “12 Strong” and “Den of Thieves” — both of which still managed to slightly outperform expectations.

Sony’s “Jumanji” took in $19.5 million in ticket sales in its fifth weekend of releases, according to final box-office figures Monday. The reboot, starring Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart, has shown surprisingly strong legs after spending its first two weeks of release in second behind “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.” Its cumulative total through Sunday is $316.5 million.

Warner Bros.’ “12 Strong,” about U.S. special forces sent to Afghanistan in the weeks after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, followed with $15.8 million in its debut. STX Entertainment’s crime thriller “Den of Thieves” debuted in third with $15.2 million.
