Boss Baby Box Office

The box office has a new boss. The Boss Baby beat Beauty And The Beast at the weekend box office. Get the details, and check out the full Top 10 movies below!

As Gossip Cop reported, Beauty And The Beast had reigned supreme at the box office since its record-breaking opening weekend two weeks ago. And while there was still magic left in the fairytale, diminishing returns and a surprisingly powerful new competitor meant the live-action adaptation of the Disney classic slipped down to second place. Taking the throne was Boss Baby, a clever new animated film with a title character voiced by Alec Baldwin. It brought in $49 million, compared to $47.5 million for Beauty And The Beast.

Both were decent totals this weekend, but the same can’t be said for Ghost In The Shell. After controversy surrounding Scarlett Johansson’s casting, the new film opened below expectations, with a debut of $19 million for third place. Power Rangers, dropping nearly three-quarters from its own opening last weekend, raked in just $14.5 million to take the number four spot. Receipts of $8.8 million landed Kong: Skull Island in the fifth position.

Rounding out the Top 10 were Hugh Jackman’s Logan in sixth with a total haul of $6.2 million. Ranking seventh with ticket sales of $5.8 million was Get Out. Life secured eighth with $5.6 million, while CHiPs nabbed ninth with $4 million. Just making it into Top 10 was The Zookeeper’s Wife. The film earned $3.35 million.
