Box Office Top 20: 'Angry Birds' slingshots past 'Civil War'

LOS ANGELES (AP) — In its first weekend in theaters, "The Angry Birds Movie" soared past "Captain America: Civil War," dethroning the superhero pic from its first place run with $38.2 million to "Captain America's" $32.9 million, according to studio actuals released Monday.

The final numbers for "The Angry Birds Movie" were slightly less than Sunday estimates but still bode well for the PG-rated animated movie, which has earned $150 million worldwide.

Newcomers "Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising" and "The Nice Guys," both R-rated comedies, fared less well. "Neighbors 2" earned less than half of the first film's opening weekend with $21.8 million, while "The Nice Guys" brought in only $11.2 million.

Disney's "The Jungle Book" rounded out the top five with $10.9 million, bringing its total to $327.4 million.
