Even good things have to end – ?Deadpool? has been dethroned from the top of the U.K. box office as new movies rake in the numbers and climb up on the list.
?Deadpool?s? three-week reign has been ended with a strong showing of Disney?s ?Zootopia? which now on top of the box office list. According to ABC News, the Disney movie proved to be a blockbuster as it created buzz in North America just on its first weekend. It collected USD73.7 million, based on comScore as posted by the article of ABC.

Believe it or not, it broke the record of crowd favorite ?Frozen?, which tallied USD67.4 million in its first three days. Disney Executive Vice President of Distribution Dave Hollis stressed that the movie is the only true all-audience film until ?The Jungle Book? ends on April 15. ?Zootopia? has already earned USD232.5 million globally, after collecting USD63.4 million internationally.
Meanwhile, ?London Has Fallen? occupied the second spot after earning USD21.7 million. However, it?s a bit lower than the USD30 million opening gross.
