Boss Baby is still in charge at the US box office

Boss Baby is still in charge of things at the US box office as it’s retained the top spot for the second week just ahead of Beauty and the Beast.

The animation took in $26.3 million in its second week, and although the Disney remake has taken a whopping $432,316,034 so far, it made $25 million in the last seven days.

Ghost in the Shell still hasn’t managed to claw back much cash after its opening weekend flop, taking just $7.3 million this weekend and dropping to number five – which is a complete disaster against its $110 million budget.

The film has been overshadowed by whitewashing controversy since Scarlett Johansson was announced to be playing the lead, which could have played a part in the flop.

Smurfs: The Lost Village was the highest new movie this week at number three, taking $14 million, with another new entry of Going in Style taking $12 million in its opening weekend.

The Power Rangers reboot has dropped a couple of spots to sixth place, taking $6.2 million this week and Kong: Skull Island is at seventh place by bringing in $5.8 million.

Still clawing in the crowds is Hugh Jackman’s Logan at eighth place, making just over $4 million this weekend, totalling a rather impressive $218,057,408 in the six weeks since its release.

Get Out follows at number nine with $4 million earnings and rounding out the top 10 is new entry The Case With Christ which brought in $3.9 million in the opening weekend.
