Two Weekends On Top For The Boss Baby

WINNIPEG, MB. — The Boss Baby continued to dominate the weekend box office.

It held on to the top spot with a haul of $26.3-million, raising receipts to nearly $200-million worldwide.

A sequel is highly likely at this point.

Still a beauty, still a beast

Disney’s Beauty and the Beast held on to the second spot in weekend four.

It was edged out just slightly by The Boss Baby with a gross of $25-million.

Globally, the Disney mega-blockbuster has soared to nearly $978-million at the box office.

Not bad for a $160-million production budget.

Boom and Bust

Smurfs: The Lost Village had a dismal start with a $14-million opening at third place.

The film cost $60-million to produce.

Going in Style attracted baby boomers to the multiplex.

It made back half its production budget with a fourth place opening of $12.5-million.

The Case for Christ opened in 10th place with $3.9-million.
