Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is Sony's highest-grossing movie

Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle passes Sam Raimi's Spider-Man as Sony's biggest movie ever.

Thank you to all of the fans that went out and supported this movie....

Johnson took to Instagram to celebrate Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle's record breaking success. I always have one goal with these movies: It's always giving the audiences what they want.

As previously reported, a sequel to the hit movie is now in the works at Sony.

This is not a case of taking it into an Apple Store and having it fail on users after it has been repaired. An iOS update prevented the touchscreens from working on iPhone 7s with third-party repaired screens.

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. It's a great credit to Jake Kasdan, all the producers, the terrific actors, and everyone at the studio who worked so hard.

Welcome to the Jungle also marks the highest-grossing domestic release for Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Kevin Hart and Jack Black, which is quite the feat considering that Johnson is now a key player in the The Fast & Furious franchise, a series that does very well for itself at the box office. Also like its predecessor, the revival-sequel will be a co-production of Matt Tolmach Productions and star Dwayne Johnson's Seven Bucks, along with Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia.

The new Jumanji movie has made a whopping $950.8 million at the box office, and it even blew by Star Wars: The Last Jedi for consecutive weeks at the top of the box office. With the primary writing team of Rosenberg and Pinkner back in place, prospects seem hopeful that the charm of Welcome to the Jungle will be replicated, all while maintaining the film's apparent indifference to setting up things like sequels and spinoffs, which was part of its appeal.
