The third installment in Sony's animated series, entitled Smurfs: The Lost Village, took in $14 million (£11.3 million) to finish behind The Boss Baby and Beauty And The Beast.
Disney's "Beauty and the Beast" continues to draw huge crowds with an estimated 25 million USA dollars fourth weekend performance as it rides a wave of continued audience enthusiasm and support for a 24-day total of 432.3 million US dollars.
Surprisingly enough, it appears Smurfs: The Lost Village isn't having the best of opening weekends at the box office after debuting to a lackluster $14.1 million despite its impressive cast and $60 million budget, which, in all honesty, actually isn't much for an animated film whose predecessors carried a hefty price tag twice that size. The movie earned an A CinemaScore. Rainn Wilson, Joe Manganiello and Jack McBrayer are among the voice cast and Kelly Asbury (Gnomeo & Juliet) directed. Russian Federation accounted for $24 million, while Mexico did $12 million, and it grossed $10 million in the United Kingdom and slightly less in France.
The new Warner Bros. release "Going in Style" opened in fourth place, which brought in an estimated 12.5 million US dollars.
