Box Office: ‘Jumanji 2’ $60, ‘Richard Jewell’ bombs, ‘Black Xmas’ in the red

Three movies not worth your time opened wide this weekend. Only one paid off.

“Jumanji: The Next Level” outperformed expectations with a whopping $60 million take.

“Frozen 2,” finally dethroned, came in a distant second in the mid-teens.

Clint Eastwood’s “Richard Jewell” didn’t wrench anybody up off the sofa that they watch Fox News from. A $5 million take for an ahistorical bust of a bio pic.

And Universal’s reboot of “Black Christmas,” the seventh film to bear that name, didn’t clear $4.5.
