NEW YORK -- "Kung Fu Panda 3" again led the box office over Super Bowl weekend, while the Coen brothers' "Hail, Caesar!" and the Jane Austen-monster mashup "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" followed distantly behind.
DreamWorks Animation's "Kung Fu Panda" sequel earned an estimated $21 million in its second weekend of release, according to studio estimates Sunday. Joel and Ethan Coen's '50s Hollywood satire "Hail, Caesar!" opened in second place with an estimated $11.4 million for Universal Pictures.
The two other major new releases struggled.
The Nicholas Sparks' romance "The Choice" debuted with $6.1 million for Lionsgate. Despite expectations of a no. 2 opening, "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" eked out a meagre $5.2 million.
