Holding down the number-two position for a second consecutive week, the film grossed an estimated additional $15.4 million, bringing its three-week total to $139.8 million.

Landing in third place is the DreamWorks-produced How to Train Your Dragon 2, grossing $12.1 million in its third week of release.
