Box Office Top 20: 'Beauty' adds $90.4 million in weekend 2

LOS ANGELES — Disney’s live-action “Beauty and the Beast” performed even better than expected in its second weekend in theatres, adding $90.4 million to its North American grosses, which now tally at $319 million.

“Beauty and the Beast” easily topped the crop of newcomers, including Lionsgate’s “Power Rangers” which got off to a solid start with $40 million and a few less successful debuts as well.

The sci-fi thriller “Life,” starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan Reynolds opened in fourth place, behind “Kong: Skull Island,” with a middling $12.5 million, while the big screen take on “CHIPS” only managed to bring in $7.7 million in its first weekend in theatres for a seventh place start.
