On Instagram, star Dwayne Johnson thanked fans and noted that the movie's producers are working on a sequel.
He joked, "Speaking of giving the audience what they want, I'm gonna go ahead and kill Kevin Hart's character off for good, and everybody will be happy."
It's official: Last night you made JUMANJI, Sony's biggest movie ever. EVER. Previous record held by SpiderMan.

The movie was a reboot of the 1995 classic adventure that starred the late Robin Williams. Directed by Jake Kasdan, it starred Johnson, Hart, Karen Gillan, and Jack Black as avatars who are inhabited by teens playing a video game.
The movie was No. 1 at the box office for four weeks after its release in December. It was also the first December wide release to get a No. 1 weekend in February since "Titanic." With Tuesday night's earnings, "Jumanji" surpassed 2002's "Spider-Man" to be Sony Pictures' highest grossing film domestically.
Four high school kids discover an old video game console and are drawn into the game's jungle setting, literally becoming the adult avatars they chose. What they discover is that you don't just play Jumanji - you must survive it. To beat the game and return to the real world, they'll have to go on the most dangerous adventure of their lives, discover what Alan Parrish left 20 years ago, and change the way they think about themselves - or they'll be stuck in the game forever.
