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.
