The Alec Baldwin-voiced "Boss Baby" took in another $26.3 million over the three days, taking its total haul in North America to $89.3 million. Internationally, Boss Baby added another $37.5 million this weekend from 46 markets as its worldwide cume now stands at $110.4 million for a global total just shy of $200 million.

Beauty And The Beast was in second after earning $25 million (£20 million). In four weeks, Disney's live-action fairy tale has brought in $432.3 million domestically and is close to crossing $1 billion at the worldwide box office. Considering that "The Lost Village" was meant to revitalize the franchise after the success of 2011's "The Smurfs" and 2013's "The Smurfs 2", the cume was not as spectacular as expected. Embarking on a rollercoaster journey full of action and danger, the Smurfs are on a course that leads to the discovery of the biggest secret in Smurf history! Zach Braff's Going In Style, which unites Sir Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman and Alan Arkin, entered the chart at the number four position with $12.5 million following mediocre to poor reviews from critics. The faith-based drama, from Pure Flix Films, tells the real-life story of a self-avowed atheist and journalist who sets out to disprove his wife's newfound Christian faith. On average, DreamWorks Animation films cost as much as $135 million to make and $65 million to market, according to Bloomberg Intelligence. Nabbing an A+ CinemaScore, Case for Christ stars Mike Vogel, Erika Christensen, Faye Dunaway and Robert Forster. These movies rated 7.8/10 and 6.4/10 in IMDb respectively.
