Box Office Top 20: 'Jungle Book' overpowers 'Huntsman'

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Even with its star-studded cast of Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron, Emily Blunt and Jessica Chastain, "The Huntsman: Winter's War" proved to be no competition for the CGI majesty of "The Jungle Book," which easily topped the box office again with $61.5 million.

The Disney adaptation has earned $192.2 million domestically in just two weeks in theaters.

Left in its wake was the fantasy epic "Hunstman." The sequel to "Snow White and the Huntsman" came in a distant second with $19.4 million in its debut — slightly less than Universal's Sunday estimates anticipated.
