Congratulations to Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and his team!
Variety reports that the actor and Emily Blunt’s latest project, Jungle Cruise, opened to $34.2 million in cinema sales and an additional $30 million on Disney+, making it to the top this weekend.
Complex adds that the adventure epic “pulled in another $27.6 million at the international box office, from 47 overseas markets, for a total of $61.8 million. The well-reviewed tentpole surpassed industry expectations, which were somewhat muted on account of the surging Delta variant and its potential effect on ticket sales.”
Johnson was happy with the news; he took to his social media to reveal that they have a sequel ready for the adventure pic.
