NEW YORK (AP) — "The Jungle Book" extended its box-office reign to three weeks, easily besting a handful of newcomers that made little impact.

In its third week of release, the Disney release took in $43.7 million, according to final box-office figures Monday. Jon Favreau's well-reviewed Rudyard Kipling adaptation has held up extremely well, bringing its North American sum to $253.4 million.

Three new releases didn't come close. Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele's action comedy debuted with $9.5 million; Garry Marshall's latest holiday-themed romantic comedy "Mother's Day" weakly opened with $8.4 million; and the video-game adaptation "Ratchet & Clank" took in just $4.9 million.
