“The Jungle Book” blew past forecasts in its opening weekend, grossing $103.6 million in the U.S. during April 15-17. It led the domestic box office for three weekends before the arrival of “Captain America: Civil War” and was still in the top 10 last weekend with $4.4 million.

“The Jungle Book,” directed by Jon Favreau, is based on Rudyard Kipling’s works and tells the story of Mowgli, an orphaned human boy who lives in the jungle among the wild.
