Disney continues a blockbuster quarter at the box office, with The Jungle Book taking the top spot this weekend over The Huntsman: Winter's War.
The live-action take on the Rudyard Kipling novel brought in $60.8 million in its second weekend, tripling The Huntsman's meager $20 million, according to Box Office Mojo. Not only did The Huntsman fail to topple the Disney film, but it only brought in about a third of what its predecessor, Snow White and the Huntsman, earned in its opening weekend in 2012.
Disney's Zootopia also performed well, dropping to No. 4 with $6.6 million in its eighth week in theaters, behind Barber Shop: The Next Cut, with $10.8 milion. Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice dipped to No. 6 with $5.5 million. The superhero epic was topped by Melissa McCarthy's The Boss, which dropped two spots to No. 5 with almost $6.1 million.
The bottom half of the chart also holds familiar titles. Criminal ($3.1 million) and My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 ($2.1 million) landed at No. 7 and No. 8 respectively. The week's other new release, Compadres, ranked at No. 9 with $1.4 million, just beating out Eye in the Sky, which finished in 10th place with $1.2 million.
