BOX OFFICE: GHOST IN THE SHELL Is No Match For The BOSS BABY

BOX OFFICE: GHOST IN THE SHELL Is No Match For The BOSS BABY

In their first weekend at the domestic box office, both Ghost in the Shell and Boss Baby looked to dethrone the reigning champ, Beauty and the Beast. Did either succeed? Find out after the jump.

In its third weekend of release, Beauty and the Beast slipped to the #2 spot, but which new film took home first place? In a stunning win, Boss Baby beat initial expectations to earn $49 million domestically, while Ghost in the Shell came in third, with $19 million. Rounding out the top 5 were Power Rangers, with $14.5 million and Kong: Skull Island, which earned another $8.8 million.

While Boss Baby and Ghost in the Shell were making their debuts, Beauty and the Beast now totals $395.5 million across three weeks, while Power Rangers has earned $65.1 million in two weeks and King Kong has accrued $147.8 million in four weeks.

The international box office could tell a different story as North American audiences have become a little more discerning over the last few years as critic reviews and aggregate scores have returned to prominence. Stay locked into CBM for a box office report for worldwide totals.
