'The SpongeBob Movie' Beats 'Jupiter Ascending' at Box Office

The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water made a huge splash at the box office, taking the top spot with a whopping $56 million opening!

According to THR, the Paramount and Nickelodeon Movies sequel is doing even better overseas with $26.8 million to-date from 25 territories for an early worldwide total of $82.8 million.

Coming in at No. 2 was American Sniper, the Clint Eastwood-directed flick starring Bradley Cooper, which brought in an additional $24.2 million for a $282.3 million domestic total so far.

Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis‘ new flick Jupiter Ascending opened in the third spot with an underwhelming $19 million despite its $150 million budget.

Rounding out the top five were Jeff Bridges and Julianne Moore‘s Seventh Son, and Paddington, starring Nicole Kidman, which earned $7.1 million and $5.4 million, respectively.
