NEW YORK (AP) — After finishing second behind “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” for two weeks, “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” notched its second straight weekend atop the North American box office, taking in $35.2 million over the four-day Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend, according to final figures Tuesday.

Steven Spielberg’s Pentagon Papers drama “The Post” took in $23.1 million in its nationwide launch, while the Liam Neeson thriller “The Commuter” opened with $15.8 million.

The Taraji P. Henson hit “Proud Mary” debuted with $11.7 million. And the sequel “Paddington 2,” bowed with $15 million. Warner Bros. purchased the North American distribution rights for the Paddington Bear sequel from The Weinstein Co. last November.
