The Kung Fu Panda franchise is going strong as it takes the #1 spot in the Box Office for it’s second weekend in a row. The film managed to bring in a another$21 million and beat out it’s competitors by a landslide. This pretty much ensures we’ll continue to see those animated films starring Jack Black until he gets it’s on Netflix series voiced by different actors. Come on, it’s inevitable.
The newcomers of the week were Hail, Caesar, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, and The Choice. The films took in $11.4mil, $5.2mil, and $6.9mil respectively.
