Kung Fu Panda 3 wins again!

Po and the Furious Five held onto first place this weekend as KUNG FU PANDA 3 was once again on top at the box office with an estimated $21 million!

Although it retained the #1 spot going into Super Bowl Sunday, the Dreamworks computer-animated sequel dropped by nearly 50% from its opening last week. KUNG FU PANDA 3 has a 10-day domestic total of $69 million, plus another $129 million from international audiences (mostly China -- it doesn't open until March in many other territories) for a worldwide total of nearly $200 million.

Opening in second place was the new comedy HAIL, CAESAR! with $11.4 million. The star-filled Hollywood satire from the Coen brothers cost a reported $22 million, and critics seemed to appreciate it more than general audiences (79% on Rotten Tomatoes versus a 'C-' CinemaScore).

THE REVENANT slipped down to third with $7.1 million on its fifth weekend in wide release. Its current domestic total of $149.7 million has crawled past the $144.8 million domestic finish of star Leonardo DiCaprio's THE GREAT GATSBY, and the R-rated survival story is now at a worldwide total of $326.1 million.

In fourth place after two months in theaters was STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS with $6.8 million. The J.J Abrams-directed sequel has blasted beyond $900 million domestic and $2 billion globally, the third movie to ever reach that mark (after TITANIC and AVATAR, of course).

The new romantic drama THE CHOICE opened in fifth with $6 million. While obviously timed for upcoming Valentine's Day, the movie had the lowest opening yet for a Nicholas Sparks adaptation, and received 8% on Rotten Tomatoes to join NORM OF THE NORTH and DIRTY GRANDPA for 2016 releases with single-digit critical averages.

Opening in sixth was the long-in-production horror/literature mashup PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES with $5.2 million. The PG-13 adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's Jane Austen/undead hybrid book had a reported $28 million cost and scored 41% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Disney's Chris Pine/Casey Affleck ocean thriller THE FINEST HOURS sank from fourth to seventh with $4.7 million, a plunge of 54% from its opening last weekend.

The Ice Cube/Kevin Hart reunion RIDE ALONG 2 was in eighth with $4.5 million as it crossed $100 million worldwide, and the horror movie THE BOY and the Robert De Niro/Zac Efron comedy DIRTY GRANDPA closed out the list.

Outside the chart, the Chloe Moretz alien invasion thriller THE 5TH WAVE disappeared along with Michael Bay's 13 HOURS: THE SECRET SOLDIERS OF BENGHAZI and the Wayans parody FIFTY SHADES OF BLACK (after a single week in the Top 10). Best Picture nominees THE BIG SHORT and BROOKLYN are still doing decent business ($1.7 million and $1.1 million respectively) on fewer than 1000 screens, and the Natalie Portman Western JANE GOT A GUN dropped a disastrous 84% from its already feeble opening.

Next weekend brings Ryan Reynolds as the R-rated merc-with-a-mouth DEADPOOL, Ben Stiller strikes new poses in ZOOLANDER 2, and an R-rated romantic comedy teaches HOW TO BE SINGLE.

I liked Hail Caesar! Not one of my favorite Coen movies, but as someone with an appreciation of Old Hollywood, they nailed the style of those movies. Hopefully this is the movie that finally turns Alden Ehrenreich into more than just the love interest, as I've been a fan since Tetro.
