The third installment in Sony's animated series, entitled Smurfs: The Lost Village, took in $14 million (£11.3 million) to finish behind The Boss Baby and Beauty And The Beast.

From far away, one might expect families to pack in for the latest animated picture after both Beauty and the Beast and The Boss Baby had their weekends in the sun, but this looks to be the time for babies voiced by Alec Baldwin. "Beauty", meanwhile, is estimated to make around $25 million in its fourth weekend in theaters.

In four weeks, Disney's live-action fairy tale has earned $432.3 million (£349.3 million) in the US. The studio's live action-CGI "The Smurfs" grossed $563.7 million globally in 2011, followed by 2013's "The Smurfs 2", which made $347.5 million worldwide on a $105 million budget. The film was well received by opening day audiences as the 18-and-under demographic gave it an "A+" CinemaScore, while the overall audience CinemaScore was an "A", a touch above the "A-" the two previous Smurfs films received. Rainn Wilson, Joe Manganiello and Jack McBrayer are among the voice cast and Kelly Asbury (Gnomeo & Juliet) directed.

The new Warner Bros. release "Going in Style" opened in fourth place, which brought in an estimated 12.5 million USA dollars. Ann-Margret and Matt Dillon also star in Going in Style, which had been expected to open to $8 million.

The box office beast also added another $36 million overseas this weekend to bring its worldwide total to $545 million, putting it just $23 million away from hitting the $1 billion global benchmark.

At the top of the box office it's Fox's The Boss Baby as the animated feature dropped 48% for an estimated $26.3 million sophomore session as its domestic cume is now just shy of $90 million after ten days in release.

Colossal, starring Anne Hathaway as a woman who battles a Godzilla-like creature in South Korea, opened in four theaters in NY and Los Angeles, grossing an estimated $130,000 for a screen average of $32,500, the best of the weekend.
