Men in tights are no match for the Queen of the box office.
Melissa McCarthy once again proved she is critic-proof by winning the top spot at the box office this weekend by a narrow margin. The Boss took in $23.48M in its opening weekend off of a $29M budget.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice came in a very close second with $23.43M. It now stands at $296.68M domestically and $486.8M foreign for a global total of $783.48M off of a $250M budget.
Zootopia is still going strong and landed in third place this week with $14.35M for a new domestic total of $296M and a global total of $852.51M.
Fourth place went to My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 with $6.42M for a new domestic total of $46.75M. Globally it stands at $70.85M.
Rounding out the top five was Hardcore Henry with $5M.
The biggest releases next weekend are Barbershop: The Next Cut, Criminal and The Jungle Book.
