Box Office Top 20: 'Kung Fu Panda 3' dethrones 'Revenant'

LOS ANGELES (AP) — "Kung Fu Panda 3" punched "The Revenant" back to its second place spot over the weekend. The animated sequel brought in a robust $41.3 million — which is a franchise low, but nonetheless a healthy showing in a generally slow time of the year at the box office. "Kung Fu Panda 3" will also have animated family film territory to itself until "Zootopia" opens in March.

In second place, "The Revenant" added $12.8 million to its total, and in third place, "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" earned $11.1 million.

Other new openers were not so lucky. Disney's live-action Coast Guard adventure pic "The Finest Hours" opened in fourth place with $10.3 million, while the parody film "Fifty Shades of Black" debuted in tenth place with a mere $5.9 million. The saddest of the bunch, though, was the beleaguered Natalie Portman-led Western "Jane Got a Gun" which opened to a measly $835,572 from 1,210 locations.
