Subject: McCarthy dethrones Batman v Superman at US box office

Written By: Philip Eno on 04/11/16 at 8:06 am

Melissa McCarthy's new comedy The Boss has unseated Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice from the top of the North American and Canadian box office.
The film, in which McCarthy plays an eccentric tycoon, took an estimated $23.5m (£16.5m) on its debut weekend.
Dawn of Justice was knocked to second place in its third week, pulling in an estimated $23.4m (£16.4m).
But when final box office figures are released on Monday, the DC comics "mash-up" could still come out on top.
The margin between the top two films is one of the closest in recent years, according to industry analysts.
Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill's superhero movie has defied poor reviews, having taken almost $300m (£211m) in the US.
