The animated movie starring Alec Baldwin topped the chart again by gaining an estimated $26.3 million, bringing its domestic total to $89.4 million. Back then, "The Smurfs" gained $563.7 million worldwide, while "Smurfs 2" made a global total of $347.5 million. Internationally, "Beauty and the Beast" earned an estimated total of $977.4 million, which means it's only a matter of time until it crosses a dazzling $1 billion.

Featuring the voices of Demi Lovato and Joe Manganiello, the Smurfs movie reportedly cost $60 million (£48.4 million) to make.

The Boss Baby remained box office champion for the second week in a row after holding off Beauty and the Beast. The live-action version of their 1990s animated classic has pulled in $432.3 million since its release in early March domestically, and over $900 million across the world. There were only two real challengers to the top spot, the first being SMURFS: THE LOST VILLAGE, which came in third place.
