Angry Birds soars to the top of the box office

Disney has finally been dethroned from the top spot at the box office.

The Angry Birds Movie took the top spot at the box office with $39M. Combined with its foreign take it now stands at $82M off of a $73M budget.

Captain America: Civil War took second this weekend with $33.11M. It stands at $347.39M domestically and $1.053 billion globally off of a $250M budget. It marks the third Marvel film to break the billion dollar barrier.

Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising opened with $21.79M compared to the $49M opening of the original film just two years ago. Reviews have been good, so curious it came in so much lower.

Fourth place went to The Nice Guys with $11M.

The Jungle Book hung on landed in fifth place with $11M and now stands at $327.49M. Globally it stands at $857.69M off of a $175M budget.

The biggest releases next weekend are Alice Through the Looking Glass and X-Men: Apocalypse.
