The Boss is the boss at the weekend box office

the-boss-poster-1It was a tight race between Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and The Boss, but it looks like Melissa McCarthy fans can celebrate a victory, with the 3-star-rated, Martha Stewart-esque comedy about a convicted mogul taking home $23.5 million over the weekend.        

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice fought the good fight, but just could not hold onto the top spot. The superhero mashup landed at a very, very close second, however, with $23.4 million — a difference of just about $45,000. Despite a marked decrease in box office earnings since its opening weekend, the DC flick has still managed to rake in close to $800 million worldwide and earn 3.7 stars from users.

After an impressive five weeks in the top two, Disney’s animated comedy Zootopia dropped down to third, earning $14.4 million this weekend. But with an almost $300 million domestic haul and a consistently stellar 4.3 star rating among users, there’s still no stopping this kid-friendly and feminist flick about a crime-fighting bunny.

Nia Vardalos and her sequel My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, which earned 3.9 stars from users, landed in fourth, adding $6.4 million to the over $70 million its already earned at the global box office.  

The innovative first-person action movie Hardcore Henry rounds out the top five with a modest $5.1 million showing, halfway recouping its small $10 million budget. And with a 4 star user rating, this POV feature made an even more solid showing here at

    Melissa McCarthy is the funniest “it” person the past couple years. I gotta say, she’s better than Will Farrell has ever been. She’s smart, witty and other than doing the leg lift splits thing, she’s not usually repetitive with her humour. She is a great top dog right now.
