This weekend, in yet another close race The Boss Baby once again edged out Beauty and the Beast for the top spot at the box office while a trio of new films opened to mediocre results.

Falling 48% from its debut, The Boss Baby took in an estimated $26.3M in its second weekend, bringing its total up to $89M.  A finale in the range of $150M is likely with many sequels likely in the works.  And coming in close behind for another week was the Disney powerhouse Beauty and the Beast which took in another $25M this weekend for a total take of $432M already with the $1 billion worldwide mark right around the corner.

Debuting in third place was the latest from the little blue people Smurfs: The Lost Village which opened to an estimated $14M from 3,610 theaters for a per screen average of only $3,882.  Audiences dug it, giving it an A CinemaScore; critics on the other hand hated it as it’s currently at 39% positive on Rotten Tomatoes.

Another debut landed in fourth with a bunch of old guys Going in Style.  The film opened to an estimated $12.5M from 3,061 theaters for a per screen average of $4,084.  Audiences were OK with it giving it a B+ CinemaScore while critics were also so-so with it as it stands at 44% positive at Rotten Tomatoes.

Holdovers took the next few spots in the top 10.  Ghost in the Shell cratered in its second weekend falling 61% to an estimated $7.35M, bringing its total up to $31M.  Look for a finale in the $45-50M range.  Power Rangers continued its freefall dropping 57% in its third weekend to an estimated $6.2M and bringing its total up to $75M.  Doesn’t seem good enough for sequels, but we shall see.

Kong: Skull Island continues its strong run landing in seventh place this weekend with an estimated $5.8M, bringing its total up to $156M.  Could have been better, but good enough (when including international numbers) to warrant sequels.  Another film that I’m sure would love a sequel (but wrote itself into a corner) is Logan which took in an estimated $4.05M bringing its total up to an impressive $218M.  And the surprise hit thriller Get Out banked another $4.02M this weekend taking its total up to an outstanding $162.8M.

Rounding out the top ten was the debut of another religious flick in the Easter corridor, The Case for Christ, which took in an estimated $3.9M from 1,174 theaters for a per screen average of $3,322.  Audiences approved as they gave the film an A+ CinemaScore while critics have gifted it with a 71% positive score on Rotten Tomatoes.

The top ten films grossed an estimated $109.2M which was up 20% from last year when The Boss opened at number one with $23.6M; but down 11% from 2015 when Furious 7 remained in the top spot with $59.5M.
