NEW YORK (AP) - Nothing could punt “Kung Fu Panda 3” from the top spot at the box office over Super Bowl weekend, where the 20th Century Fox animated sequel hauled in $21.2 million in its second week of release.

A trio of new releases didn’t come close to challenging. Joel and Ethan Coen’s 1950s Hollywood send-up “Hail, Caesar!” opened unspectacularly with $11.4 million for Universal. The latest Nicholas Sparks adaptation “The Choice” debuted with a meager $6.1 million for Lionsgate. And the Sony Screen Gems Jane Austen monster mashup “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” scared up only $5.3 million.
