Kung Fu Panda 3 Karate Chops To The Top

LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) – 20th Century Fox was the big winner at the box office with the top two movies.

The DreamWorks animated comedy, Kung Fu Panda 3, which came in at the number one spot with the much more intense survival drama, The Revenant moving down to second place, according to figures released by Rentrak.


"It's a bold move to take a franchise which has had great success in that summer corridor and move it into late January, which is generally considered a very slow time," Rentrak's senior media analyst Paul Dergarabedian said. "It also filled a huge void in the marketplace."


The Finest Hours came in fourth domestically, based on a real life 1952 rescue mission by sea.
Dergarabedian thinks that the nautical theme might have seemed too similar to the recently released "In the Heart of the Sea" for audiences.

1 Kung Fu Panda 3 – 20th Century Fox – $41,000,000
2 The Revenant – 20th Century Fox – $12,400,000
