Disney’s new film version of The Jungle Book made more than three times as much as its nearest rival in North American cinemas over the weekend, taking $60.8 million between Friday and Sunday, despite being in its second week of release.

That compared with the $20.1 million The Huntsman: Winter’s War made in the US and Canada over the same period.

Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron and Emily Blunt appear in the follow-up to 2012’s Snow White and the Huntsman.

Original star Kristen Stewart did not return for the sequel.
