“The Jungle Book” Stays on Top at the Box Office


Walt Disney Studios(NEW YORK) — It’s still a jungle out there at the box office.

For the second weekend in a row, The Jungle Book was the top movie. The Disney film raked in an estimated 60.8 million dollars from Friday through Sunday. It has now made more than 191 million domestically since its release just over a week ago.

Disney is the parent company of ABC News.

The weekend’s lone wide release, The Huntsman: Winter’s War, opened in second place, collecting 20.1 million dollars — a somewhat-underwhelming total, considering its reported budget was 115 million.

The Huntsman: Winter’s War, starring Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron, Emily Blunt and Jessica Chastain, is the follow-up to 2012’s Snow White and the Huntsman.

Here are the top 10 movies from Friday through Sunday, with estimated ticket sales, according to Rentrak:

1. The Jungle Book, $60.8 million.
2. The Huntsman: Winter’s War, $20.1 million.
3. Barbershop: The Next Cut, $10.8 million.
