Peter Rabbit Trailer Starring The Voices Of James Corden, Daisy Ridley & Margot Robbie

#TheJungleBook Opens Huge

Disney's crusade to turn its animated properties into live-action movies has largely been a successful one, and that continues with Jon Favreau's new version of The Jungle Book, which has opened to $103.5 million in the States, according to studio estimates.

That's a healthy start for the film, which carried a reported $175 million production budget and cost a fair chunk on top of that to market. But with overseas openings also showing strong returns, the movie is already past $290 million worldwide. Audiences seem to be embracing the immersive CG aesthetic, which uses digital technology to conjure everything but Neel Sethi's Mowgli and one or two tiny chunks of the jungle. With an "A" CinemaScore and some glowing reviews, expect this one to stay healthy for a while.

Comedy sequel Barbershop: The Next Cut (the first in the series since 2004's Back In Business and 2005's spin-off Beauty Shop) couldn't quite perform at the same level, opening with $20.2 million. Still, thanks to a much lower budget and decent audience response, it should stick around and do some solid business. It shoved The Boss down to third, with Melissa McCarthy's latest falling 56% and earning $10.1 million this weekend. But that was still a better return than Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, which took in $9 million in fourth. The superhero match-up has now made more than $311 million in the States and currently sits at $827.3 million worldwide after four weeks on release. And Zootopia, which saw a cut in business thanks to its Disney stablemate's new animal action, still managed to bring in $8.2 million despite being in the charts for seven weeks now.

Kevin Costner mind-swap action thriller Criminal limped into sixth place, stung by bad reviews and low turnout. It made $5.8 million, just a couple of million more than My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, which has been out for four weeks and cost less to make. The family comedy sequel earned $3.2 million and has taken $52 million in the US alone so far.

At eighth we find Miracles From Heaven with $1.9 million, still ahead of God's Not Dead 2, clinging to the bottom on the charts at ninth and $1.7 million. And finally, holding steady at 10th was drone drama Eye In The Sky, making $1.5 million for a $13.1 million US total to date.

#TombRaider Official Trailer

Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was scarcely a teen. Now a young woman of 21 without any real focus or purpose, Lara navigates the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier, barely making the rent, and takes college courses, rarely making it to class. Determined to forge her own path, she refuses to take the reins of her father’s global empire just as staunchly as she rejects the idea that he’s truly gone. Advised to face the facts and move forward after seven years without him, even Lara can’t understand what drives her to finally solve the puzzle of his mysterious death.



Going explicitly against his final wishes, she leaves everything she knows behind in search of her Dad’s last-known destination: a fabled tomb on a mythical island that might be somewhere off the coast of Japan. But her mission will not be an easy one; just reaching the island will be extremely treacherous. Suddenly, the stakes couldn’t b…

COOK-OFF! Trailer Starring Melissa McCarthy

Reality-show shenanigans mix with the true-life fiery-and-fierce world of competitive baking in the deliciously sly mockumentary COOK-OFF! As a buffet of quirky contestants prepare for the renowned Van Rookle Farms Cooking Contest, the heat is on to win a one million-dollar prize. The filmmakers follow them as the foodie media and celebrity judges descend on a hotel convention area to see which contestants rise, which ones fall, who will reveal their true nature, and who will find love with the contest’s costumed Muffin Man mascot.



Costarring a cast of improv geniuses including Melissa McCarthy, Ben Falcone, Stephen Root, Diedrich Bader, Wendy McLendon-Covey, Gary Anthony Williams, and Sam Pancake, the zesty COOK-OFF! is an affectionate nod to ordinary Americans who believe they’re one dollop of spray cheese away from achieving their dreams.
