It apparently takes more than a lost village to make Smurfs relevant again, as Alec Baldwin's wise-cracking Boss Baby stayed atop the box office a second week with $26.3 million. Beauty and the Beast was close behind with $25 million as it heads toward the $1 billion mark, leaving Smurfs: The Lost Village to bomb with $14 million, what the Hollywood Reporter calls "one of the worst starts in recent memory for an animated offering from a major Hollywood studio." Coming in at No. 4 was Going in Style, a Zach Braff-directed flick starring Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine, which pulled off a surprising $12.5 million. Ghost in the Shell was fifth with $7.3 million. (Baldwin is having quite a time of it lately.)
