Disney’s live action remake of animated classic Cinderella earned $70.1 million to grab the top spot at the weekend box office, handily beating Liam Neeson’s latest, Run All Night, which earned a disappointing $11 million.
Cinderella, which stars Cate Blanchett as the stepmother, is the latest in a string of Disney remakes to transform animation into live action with financial success, Variety reports. Both Maleficent and Alice in Wonderland performed well at the box office in recent years; the studio has similar plans for Beauty and the Beast and Dumbo.
Run All Night, which was largely panned by top critics, entered a box office that may have been over saturated with action films starring Neeson; he starred in Taken 3, which hit theaters in January, as well as last year’s Non-Stop.
Colin Firth’s Kingsman: The Secret Service finished third with $6.2 million, crossing the $100 million mark in total earnings, while Will Smith’s heist film Focus finished fourth with $5.8 million. The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel rounded out the top 5 with $5.7 million.
