Box Office: ‘Beauty And The Beast’ Holds 2nd Place Behind ‘Boss Baby’

Beauty and The Beast Box Office

Beauty and the Beast seems like it’s been permanently knocked into second place as The Boss Baby takes first place at the box office for the second week in a row. The Boss Baby, a DreamWorks Animation starring Alec Baldwin in the title role, grossed a total of $26.3 million in its second weekend. Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, although still not able to retake the top spot, was not far behind the animated film, grossing $25 million after four weeks at the box office. Beauty and the Beast has now surpassed $432.2 million domestically and its global gross total is now at $977.4 million.

In third place is Smurfs: Lost Village, which made an estimated $14 million in its opening weekend. The film is the third in the Smurfs movie series. The film cost $60 million to make, so the opening weekend numbers aren’t looking that great, although the film has received a higher score than both of its predecessors. Coming in fourth place is the Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine comedy Going in Style, with $12.5 million. This number is higher than what the initial estimate of $8-$10 million. Ghost in the Shell rounds out the top five with $7.35 million, bringing its total to $31.57 million in its second week domestically. Internationally, the film, which stars Scarlett Johansson, has now made $92.8 million.

Power Rangers is down to sixth place with $6.2 million and a domestic total of $75.1 million. Kong: Skull Island and Logan come in seventh and eighth place, with $5.8 million ($156.5 million total domestic) and $4.08 million ($218 million total domestic), respectively. Globally, Kong has now made an impressive $534.4 million, with $377.8 million coming from overseas box office.
