Kung Fu Panda 3 handily led the field again on Wednesday with $1.4 million, bringing its six-day domestic tally up to $46.7 million. With healthy word of mouth and a strong lack of competition through February, we remain confident that the animated sequel will continue playing strongly for weeks to come.

The Revenant claimed second place yesterday with another $0.955 million. That gives the 12-time Oscar nominee a domestic total of $141.7 million so far as it continues to benefit from strong awards buzz and word of mouth.

Meanwhile, Star Wars: The Force Awakens rounded out the top three with $0.8 million yesterday. The all-time domestic record holder now stands at $898.

The 3D computer animated sequel from Fox and DreamWorks Animation was up a healthy 31 percent over Monday. Kung Fu Panda 3 has grossed $45.32 million in five days of release. The film is running a bit below expectations and 16 percent behind the $53.78 million five-day start of last year's Hotel Transylvania 2 (which increased 27 percent on its First Tuesday to gross $2.98 million). With no new family films going into wide release during the month of February, Kung Fu Panda 3 will have a strong chance of holding up well going forward.

Kung Fu Panda 3 easily led the box office this weekend with $41.28 million. However, the 3D computer animated sequel from Fox and DreamWorks Animation opened below expectations, which had been boosted a bit as a result of strong online pre-sales heading into the weekend. Kung Fu Panda 3 debuted 21 percent below the $52.11 million debut of last year's Home and 13 percent below the $47.66 million opening weekend take of 2011's Kung Fu Panda 2 (which was deflated a bit from opening on a Thursday). Without adjusting for ticket price inflation, Kung Fu Panda 3 did register the third largest January debut of all time (behind only American Sniper and Ride Along).

Kung Fu Panda 3 easily led the box office this weekend with an estimated $41.0 million.

Fox reports that DreamWorks' Kung Fu Panda 3 bowed to an estimated $10.5 million on opening day Friday, claiming first place in the process -- the first animated film to do so since October 1 (Hotel Transylvania 2's last day in that position). Unfortunately, that does fall slightly short of pre-release expectations (and south of Home's $15.7 million opening day last March). However, the long game should benefit the long-awaited second sequel in the franchise as strong word of mouth (89 percent on Flixster) and very positive reviews (79 percent on Rotten Tomatoes) are in its favor, in addition to a lack of any real competition until March's Zootopia. For opening weekend, BoxOffice projects a $37 million haul, followed by strong legs thereafter.

Fox's The Revenant took in $1.52 million on Thursday to remain in first place at the daily box office. The Alejandro González Iñárritu directed western starring Leonardo DiCaprio was down 4 percent from Wednesday and down just 29 percent from last Thursday. The Revenant was the week's top film with a weekly take of $22.58 million. That represented a 50 percent decline from the previous frame and brings the film's domestic total to an impressive $125.77 million through three weeks of wide release (and two additional weeks of platform release).

Disney's Star Wars: The Force Awakens held steady in second with $1.34 million.
