Boldly going where Power Rangers couldn't...

It seemed like it was going to be an impossible feat to knock Beauty and the Beast from the top spot of the US Box Office. After all, even Power Rangers couldn't manage it, despite raking in an absolutely massive $40.5 million last weekend.

But now Alec Baldwin's Boss Baby has done just that, by taking $49 million in its opening weekend and pipping Emma Watson's Disney remake to the post.

Belle and her castle full of enchanted objects totalled an impressive $47,543,000 this weekend, making them second in the film's third week in cinemas.

Meanwhile, fellow new entry Ghost in the Shell debuted at number three – albeit considerably behind the top two films, making less than half the cash with $19 million.

Power Rangers slipped to the fourth spot, making $14.5 million while Kong: Skull Island rounds out the top five with $8.8 million.

X-Men spin-off Logan made $6.2 million, just dropping out of the top five into sixth.

Surprise hit horror film Get Out is continuing to get fans to the cinema, as it made just over $5.8 million in its sixth week, dropping a place from sixth to seventh place in the box office top ten.

Life, the Alien-esque sci-fi horror starring Ryan Reynolds and Jake Gyllenhaal, and buddy cop film CHiPs came in at number eight and number nine, earning $5.6 million and $4.05 million respectively.

Finally, The Zookeeper's Wife, featuring Jessica Chastain, debuted at the number 10 spot – earning just over $3.3 million in its opening weekend.

Check out the March 31 – April 2 weekend box office estimates below:

1 – The Boss Baby – $49 million
2 – Beauty and the Beast – $47.5 million
3 – Ghost in the Shell – $19 million
4 – Power Rangers – $14.5 million

6 – Logan – $6.2 million
7 – Get Out – $5.8 million
