One hundred and twelve days after it hit screens on 19 December in the United States of America, adventure comedy Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle has become Sony's highest earning domestic film in the studio's box office history with a cumulative gross of $403,714,915 on 10 April.
In a video posted to his Instagram account, Johnson revealed that he was notified at "2:30 in the morning" that Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is officially "Sony's biggest movie ever". The film, directed by Jake Kasdan, has made a huge $950 million worldwide, including a $403 million domestic gross. EVER. Previous record held by SpiderMan. He also added that they are working on a sequel.More news: MA cop is shot, killed reports State
Alongside a screenshot of an article on the film's success, he wrote: "This is honestly insane!"
For now though, we can at least take comfort in the fact that Jumanji is coming out on DVD and Blu-Ray and enjoy it in the comfort of our homes. The alleged current plan is to try and get the film in theaters by the end of 2019, where it will go up against Star Wars: Episode IX, just as the first movie competed at the box office with The Last Jedi. That means Johnson should be reprising his role alongside Hart, and Karen Gillan and Jack Black might want to clear their calendars as well. Now, with the sequel confirmed, it's hard to imagine Sony going with anyone other than director Jake Kasdan or writers Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg - let alone altering anyone major from the cast.
