With no blockbuster releases entering the market, “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” and “Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle” had no trouble dominating the US box office on Friday.

“Star Wars,” which has won the past two weekend races, was Friday’s #1 film. It added $19.1 million to its haul.

“Jumanji” followed with $17.8 million in Friday receipts.

Analysts expect “Star Wars” to retain its lead through Sunday — and secure a third consecutive weekend box office crown.

Credited with $6.6 million in receipts, “Pitch Perfect 3” took third place at the Friday box office. “The Greatest Showman” followed in fourth with $5.4 million, while a gross of $4.5 million positioned “Ferdinand” as the day’s #5 film.
