NEW YORK (AP) – Disney’s The Jungle Book trounced a handful of underperforming new releases to rule the box office for a third consecutive week, while next week’s certain champ, Captain America: Civil War, began setting records overseas.

Jon Favreau’s live-action Rudyard Kipling adaptation earned $42.4 million in its third week at North American theaters, according to studio estimates Sunday. One of the year’s biggest hits, The Jungle Book has now totaled $684.8 million globally.

The weekend’s debuts withered in the wake of The Jungle Book. Keegen-Michael Key and Jordan Peele’s feline action-comedy Keanu opened with a modest $9.4 million.

Garry Marshall’s latest holiday-themed romantic comedy, Mother’s Day, bowed with a weak $8.3 million despite the presence of stars Jennifer Aniston and Julia Roberts.

In 37 international territories, Civil War debuted with $200.2 million.

Full domestic box office weekend estimates:

  1. The Jungle Book  $42.4M
  2. The Huntsman: Winter’s War  $9.4M
  3. Keanu  $9.3M
  4. Mother’s Day  $8.3M
  5. Barbershop: The Next Cut  $6.1M
