NEW YORK — The Coen brothers’ “Hail, Caesar!” and the Jane Austen-monster mashup “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” followed distantly behind “Kung Fu Panda 3,” which remained on top of the box office over Super Bowl weekend.
DreamWorks Animation’s “Kung Fu Panda” sequel earned an estimated $21 million in its first weekend of release, according to studio estimates Sunday.
Joel and Ethan Coen’s ‘50s Hollywood satire “Hail, Caesar!” opened in second place with an estimated $11.4 million in North American theaters for Universal Pictures.
The two other major new releases struggled.
The Nicholas Sparks’ romance “The Choice” debuted with $6.1 million for Lionsgate.
