‘Insidious: The Last Key’ Approaching 100 Million at Worldwide Box Office

January is off to a great start for the film industry, thanks to Jumanji, a slew of new releases, and the perennial horror favorite Insidous: the Last Key.

Insidious: the Last Key is quickly approaching the 100 million dollar mark at the worldwide box office, and it should also become the second most profitable film in the entire franchise before its theatrical run is over.  The Last Key added an estimated $12.5 million over the Martin Luther King Day weekend, bringing the film’s total to just over $50 million at the domestic box office.   Internationally, the film is also fairing well with $44 million at this point, with other territories on the horizon.

The Last Key should continue to perform well the rest of this month with little horror competition until Winchester is released in early February. The Last Key actually added theaters in its second week of release, and only experienced an expected 58% drop from its debut weekend.

Jumanji finished first at the four day weekend box office with $35.5 million, continuing to astound an industry that never expected any film to challenge Star Wars: the Last Jedi’s supremacy in the month of January.  The maligned Jedi fell to 6th place this weekend, being beaten by not only Jumanji, but also by The Post, The Commuter, The Greatest Showman, and Insidious.

Stay tuned for more box office updates on this season’s horror favorites and be sure to catch up on all of the upcoming release by using your trusty Horror News Network 2018 Winter Preview as your guide.
