The Boss Baby Tops Weekend Box Office
WINNIPEG, MB. — The Boss Baby made Beauty and the Beast step down.
The Alec Baldwin animated comedy opened in first place with $49-million.
That just slightly edged out Disney’s wildly successful live-action remake.
Still a beaut
Beauty and the Beast fell to second place with $47.5-million.
The film enjoyed two weekends on top.
It has grossed a worldwide total of over $877-million on a $160-million budget.
Ghost in the projector
Scarlett Johansson’s Ghost in the Shell under-performed and disappointed.
It grossed just $19-million domestically on a $110-million budget.
There may be a ghost in the shell, but there’s probably no sequel in the works.
The top 10 box office numbers from the weekend follow below:
