That said, Insidious: The Last Key won Friday with $12.7 million including almost $2 million from Thursday previews.

Finishing in third-place with $23.6 million was Star Wars: Episode VIII-The Last Jedi. It earned $29.3 million. The film garnered generally poor reviews and a B-minus CinemaScore (the lowest such score for the franchise, but still decent in the horror genre). "The Greatest Showman" (#4, $4.2 million) and "Pitch Perfect 3" (#5, $3.3 million) completed Friday's Top 5.

The animated feature Ferdinand finished its fourth week of release in sixth place with an estimated $7.7 million over the weekend.

The "Jumanji" sequel has taken in $244.4 million in its first 19 days domestically.

Rian Johnson's sequel to Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been dominating the box office since its opening in mid-December, but it has since faced tough competition following the debut of Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. Either way, Insidious should be able to bring in $26 to 27 million or more by Sunday. That would be a negligible drop (less than 10%) from the New Year's Day weekend.

Lin Shaye, who has starred in all three films, returns in "Insidious: The Last Key" as a parapsychologist whose haunted childhood comes to threaten her family and home in a follow-up to the events in "Insidious: Chapter 3". Universal is the US theatrical distributor with Sony releasing in the rest of the world. The space blockbuster has grossed $572.5 million to date.

Overall, industry-wide totals were well below those of last weekend, but well above those of a year ago.
