The Jungle Book continued it’s reign at the box office with another $42.4 million in it’s third week at number one.  The movie has made over $252 million domestically and over $432 million worldwide.  It will get tagged out by Captain America: Civil War this coming weekend as Disney extends it’s domination of the 2016 box office.  Civil War has already made $84 million in the international markets it’s been released in.

Second went to The Huntsman: Winter’s War, which fell over 51% from last weekend and made another $9.39 million, just edging out newcomer Keanu, which took third with $9.35 million.

Mother’s Day was the worst performing of the trilogy of sappy romantic holiday movies from Garry Marshall with $8.3 million and fourth place, compared to the $56 million opening of Valentine’s Day or even the $13 million from New Year’s Eve.  It got absolutely eviscerated by the critics as well.

Barbershop: The Next Cut rounded out the top five with another $6 million, putting it just over $44 million for it’s three weeks out but it’s still third compared to the two previous Barbershop films.

The other new release, Ratchet & Clank, took seventh with a mediocre $4.8 million, putting it’s opening as far as video game films go between Wing Commander and Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li.  It seems like it’s a better idea to just play the new PS4 game, as you’ll get the same story with the awesome Ratchet & Clank gameplay instead of just watching what seems like just the game’s cutscenes.

Elsewhere on the charts, critically acclaimed thriller Green Room is slowly expanding and took in $960,000 at 470 theaters while Jason Bateman’s The Family Fang had the best per theater average of the weekend with $15,285 in the 1 theater it played in.
