Jungle Book roars at US box office

Disney’s new version of The Jungle Book has taken a big bite out of the US box office, topping it with $103.6m (£73.1m) in its opening weekend.
Its debut was the second biggest April opening in history, behind only Furious 7’s $147.2m (£104m) launch in 2015.
According to the studio, Jon Favreau’s film also made an estimated $136.1m (£96m) outside the US and Canada.
Comedy sequel Barbershop: The Next Cut came a distant second, with opening weekend takings of $20.2m (£14.2m).
Disney has achieved success of late with transforming its classic cartoons into live-action remakes, including Alice in Wonderland, Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty makeover Maleficent.
