“The Jungle Book” had it’s third top box office weekend, but it knows that another ruler is coming to town to knock it down in the form of Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War,” which is already setting international box office records. Remember when these American based movies used to open in our own country first?

Disney’s “The Jungle Book” trounced a handful of underperforming new releases to rule the box office for a third consecutive week, while next week’s certain champ, “Captain America: Civil War,” began setting records overseas.

Jon Favreau’s live-action Rudyard Kipling adaptation earned $42.4 million in its third week at North American theaters, according to studio estimates Sunday. One of the year’s biggest hits, “The Jungle Book” has now totaled $684.8 million globally.

The weekend’s debuts withered under the stampede of “The Jungle Book.”

Keegen-Michael Key and Jordan Peele’s feline action-comedy “Keanu” opened with a modest $9.4 million. That was a whisker behind “The Huntsman: Winter’s War,” which limped its way to $9.4 million in its second disappointing week of release.

Warner Bros.’ R-rated “Keanu,” from the former Comedy Central stars of “Key and Peele,” cost only about $15 million to make. In it, they play Los Angeles cousins who are led into a criminal underworld in their search for a lost cat.

Garry Marshall’s latest holiday-themed romantic comedy, “Mother’s Day,” bowed with a weak $8.3 million despite the presence of stars Jennifer Aniston and Julia Roberts. Though Marshall’s “Valentine’s Day” opened with $56.2 million in 2010, audiences have since been less enthusiastic for his poorly reviewed Hallmark card ensembles. “Mother’s Day,” released by Open Road, even trails the $13 million opening of 2011’s “New Year’s Eve.”

The video-game adaption “Ratchet & Clank,” from Focus Features, made even less of a dent with an estimated $4.8 million.

With “Captain America: Civil War” opening next weekend in North America, the box office was largely in a holding pattern, waiting for Marvel to effectively launch the summer movie season. “Civil War” gave a preview of its might in 37 international territories over the weekend, taking in an estimated $200.2 million. That includes record openings in Mexico, Brazil and the Philippines for the film some expect to be the year’s biggest hit.

Once it lands, Disney will have accounted for three of the top five movies of the year, along with “The Jungle Book” and “Zootopia.”

Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to comScore. Where available, the latest international numbers for Friday through Sunday are also included. Final domestic figures will be released Monday.
