“Jumanji: The Next Level” is expected to make a ton of money during its debut weekend at the box office.

I’m not surprised by the gigantic projections at all. One of the big things going for the highly-anticipated sequel is that it’s opening a weekend before “Star Wars.” (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

If it opened next week, “The Rise of Skywalker” would crush it. Luckily for the people behind this film, that’s not the case.

Secondly, “The Next Level” is going to get big numbers because it has an A-list cast and there’s already a dedicated audience from the first one.

In Hollywood terms, it’s as close as you can get to a surefire success at the box office.

If you haven’t already seen the first one, I highly suggest that you do. It’s a fun film if you’re looking to kill a couple hours.

I watched it with my mom when it came out a couple Christmas seasons back. It was worth every penny, and it’s not my usual genre.

We’ll see if it meets the projections, but I 100% expect big numbers.
