HOLLYWOOD, Calif., May 16, 2016 (Gephardt Daily) — Disney’s “Captain America: Civil War” and “The Jungle Book” remained in the number one and two positions over the weekend, according to Box Office Mojo.

Opening in third place was “Money Monster,” directed by Jodie Foster and starring George Clooney and Julia Roberts. The action/thriller took home $15 million over the weekend. Industry experts are pointing out that “Money Monster” should have brought in a larger take, but the film’s stars aren’t pulling the audiences they used to.
