But “The Boss Baby” — in the tradition of “Look Who’s Talking,” Stewie from “Family Guy”
and the cigar-chomping Baby Herman from “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” — proved enormously popular, pushing past Belle of “Beauty and the Beast” to take in roughly $49 million.
“Beauty and the Beast” (Disney) had $47.5 million in ticket sales, for a three-week domestic total of $395 million
and a global one of $876 million, according to comScore, which compiles box office data.
(The Los Angeles Times deemed it a “rancid diaper.”) Another new arrival, “Ghost in the Shell,” had
been written off as a contender after becoming embroiled in a “whitewashing” casting controversy.
