The Jungle Book overpowers Huntsman

Associated Press Associated Press 26/04/2016

Even with its star-studded cast of Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron, Emily Blunt and Jessica Chastain, The Huntsman: Winter's War proved to be no competition for the CGI majesty of The Jungle Book, which easily topped the box office again with $US61.53 million.

The Disney adaptation has earned $192.2 million in the United States and Canada in just two weeks in theatres.

Left in its wake was the fantasy epic Huntsman. The sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman came in a distant second with $19.4 million in its debut - slightly less than Universal's Sunday estimates anticipated.

1. The Jungle Book, Disney, $61.53m
