‘Boss Baby’ Beats ‘Beast’ at Box Office

DreamWorks Animation film The Boss Baby—which features Alex Baldwin as a talking, suit-wearing infant—bested Beauty and the Beast this weekend, surprising box-office analysts. It was nearly universally panned by critics, but The Boss Baby took in $49 million anyway with an exceptionally strong turnout all over the country. Beauty and the Beast had $47.5 million in ticket sales for its second week, and Ghost in the Shell, starring Scarlett Johansson, came in third place, taking in $19 million.
