LOS ANGELES (AP) — "The Divergent Series" stumbled this weekend as the third movie in the four-picture series, "Allegiant," opened to only $29 million — a far cry from the previous two films that both debuted in the same time frame to over $50 million.

"Allegiant" took second place to Disney's "Zootopia," which held on to the top spot in its third weekend with $37.2 million, pushing its domestic total past the $200 million mark.

Sony's faith-based "Miracles From Heaven" debuted in third place with a robust $14.8 million as well. The film starring Jennifer Garner cost only $13 million to produce and has made $18.4 million since its Wednesday opening.
