Jungle Cruise Rides to $61.8M at Box Office, $30M on Disney+

The movie came in ahead of expectations at the domestic box office with $34.2 million despite renewed concerns over COVID-19 and the delta variant.

Disney’s Jungle Cruise rode to a better-than-expected opening of $34.2 million at the domestic box-office amid renewed concerns over COVID-19 and the delta variant for a worldwide box office debut of $61.8 million.

The movie’s total global start is an OK $91.8 million when including $30 million in revenue from Disney+ Premier Access.

Overseas, where a number of countries are also seeing a surge in coronavirus cases, it earned a tepid $27.6 million from 47 markets.

Jungle Cruise, starring Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt, had been tracking to open in the $25 million to $30 million range domestically.

Jaume Collet-Serra directed the $200 million tentpole that’s based on the iconic Disneyland ride and which hopes to launch a new franchise, much as the first Pirates of the Caribbean did.
