NEW YORK (AP) — On a typically sluggish Super Bowl weekend, Sony Pictures’ “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” topped the North American box office for the fourth time in seven weeks. The runaway hit, a reboot starring Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart, sold $10.9 million in tickets in its seventh weekend of release.

The lone new wide release to compete with the Super Bowl was the Lionsgate-CBS Films supernatural thriller “Winchester,” starring Helen Mirren. It debuted in third, with $9.3 million.
