Baby Shows Smurfs Who's Cinema Boss

Kelly Asbury is the director of the new film Smurfs The Lost Village

DreamWorks Animation and Fox's "The Boss Baby" continued to dominate the North American box office in its second week of release, outdrawing "Beauty and the Beast" and a fresh "Smurfs" movie. The live-action version of their 1990s animated classic has pulled in $432.3 million since its release in early March domestically, and over $900 million across the world.

The latest Smurfs movie lost out at the U.S. box office at the weekend, only managing to debut in third place. "Smurfs: The Lost Village", $14 million 4.

Yee said "the United States does not engage in such agreements about. how universities are going to be run in foreign countries". The US State Department has expressed its concerns about the legislation and the CEU's ability to continue operating in Hungary.

Beauty and the Beast earned $25m. Embarking on a rollercoaster journey full of action and danger, the Smurfs are on a course that leads to the discovery of the biggest secret in Smurf history! Rainn Wilson, Joe Manganiello and Jack McBrayer are among the voice cast and Kelly Asbury (Gnomeo & Juliet) directed.

"Going in Style", a Warner Bros. comedy starring Morgan Freeman, Alan Arkin and Michael Caine as an octogenarian trio determined to rob a bank after their pension money goes up in smoke, placed fourth in its opening weekend, taking in $12.5 million. Mike Vogel, Erika Christensen and Faye Dunaway star in the film about an investigative journalist who tries to disprove the existence of God.

Trump has accused China of "raping" the USA and argued that it has engaged in trade abuses to gain an advantage over the US. A sound bilateral relationship will benefit not only the two countries and peoples, but also the world at large, he said.

The competition for box office supremacy will rev up next weekend with the arrival of The Fate of the Furious. So there's no reason to believe that THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS won't do as much or more as FURIOUS 7, which puts the opening number at $147 million. (Preaching to the choir pays off, go figure.) Otherwise, it was a crowded but quiet weekend at the movies, with modest bows for Gifted ($476,000 in 56 theaters), Colossal ($125,000 in four theaters), Their Finest ($77,000 in four theaters), and Graduation ($11,000 on two screens). The independent film marks the first release from Neon, the distribution company launched by former Radius-TWC co-chief Tomas Quinn and Alamo Drafthouse founder Tim League.

EuropaCorp and STX Entertainment's critically acclaimed British romantic comedy Their Finest debuted to $77,000 from 4 theaters in Los Angeles and NY for a screen average of $19,250.
