"Comme des bêtes 2", Universal's new animated film, took the lead at the box office, according to data released Monday by the company Exhibitor Relations.

For its release weekend, the sequence of "Like Beasts" (2016) grossed $ 46.7 million between Friday and Sunday in the United States and Canada.

Comedian Louis C.K, who lent his voice to dog Max in the first play, is no longer showing. He fell disgracefully in Hollywood as part of the #MeToo movement since the women accused him of flaunting.

The cartoon is ahead of Marvel's new line of mutants, "X-Men: Dark Phoenix." The Fox movie, overwhelmed by negative reviews, grossed $ 32.8 million, a very disappointing figure for its first weekend of operation.

The podium is completed by "Aladdin" Disney, with Will Smith. For its third week, it raised $ 24.7 million in revenue, bringing the total to $ 232.6 million.

"Godzilla 2 – King of Monsters" last week fell to fourth place, especially because of a bad press. The sequel to "Godzilla" 2014 grossed $ 15.5 million for its second week in theaters and 78.5 million in total.

Fifth, we find "Rocketman," the biopic about Elton John's life at $ 13.8 million. He reported $ 50.3 million in two weeks.

Here's the rest of the Top 10:

6 – "Ma": US $ 7.8 million (US $ 32.8 million in two weeks)

7 – "John Wick Parabellum": 7.4 million (138.7 million in four weeks)

8 – "Avengers: Endgame": 4.9 million (824.4 million in seven weeks). At global box offices, the film grossed $ 2.73 billion and is only $ 58 million from the "Avatar" record.

9 – "Detective Pokémon Pikachu": 3.2 million (137.6 million in five weeks)

10 – "Booksmart": 1.6 million (17.8 million in three weeks)
