Box office top 20: 'The Jungle Book' rules with $103.3M

The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) "The Jungle Book" ruled the box office with $103.3 million in its debut weekend, the latest Walt Disney Co. live action adaptation of one of the studio's cartoon classics to score big with moviegoers.

The larger-than-expected debut succeeded by drawing a wide audience to the well-reviewed PG-rated film. Only five PG-rated films have had larger openings. But Jon Favreau's CGI-enabled update of the "The Jungle Book" landed the second highest April opening ever.

Opening solidly in second was Ice Cube's "Barbershop: The Next Cut" with $20.2 million, according to final box office figures released Monday. The Kevin Costner action thriller "Criminal" limped into theaters with $5.8 million.
