China has banned the new Disney flick "Christopher Robin" - apparently because President Xi Jinping is furious at the string of memes comparing him to Winnie the Pooh.

The sequel added another $35.0 million in receipts this weekend, bringing its cumulative haul to $124.5 million. The action adventure directed by JA Bayona has earned $405.6 million in the USA and $854.5 million in the rest of the world for a cume of $1.26 billion. McQuarrie is the first director to helm two films in the franchise.

Disney's live-action Winnie-the-Pooh revival "Christopher Robin" opened on the low side of expectation with $25 million.

The PG film was just recently released in the States and stars Ewan McGregor as a grown-up Christopher Robin.

In third place, the comedy film The Spy Who Dumped Me was unable to shake negative reviews from critics, earning a mere $12.3 million its freshman weekend. Amandla Stenberg, Mandy Moore and Gwendoline Christie round out the cast.

The final wide release, Dinesh D'Souza's "Death of a Nation", made US$2.3 million on 1,032 screens.

While the lifetime collections of last Hollywood biggie in India, Deadpool 2 [65 crore], would be crossed over the second weekend itself, it would need some real push to challenge the next in line - Avengers - The Age of Ultron [80 crore].

Universal's Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again placed # 3 with $9.1-M in its 3rd frame for a $91.3-M.

Meanwhile, Disney's "Black Panther" reached a massive milestone. The Brad Bird-directed comedy has amassed $1.047 billion worldwide: $583 million domestic and $464 million internationally.

"It's one of our smaller films and it's really focused on character and emotion, " said Taff. "It speaks to the incredible storytelling of Kevin Feige and Marvel".

Desiree Akhavan's feature, The Miseducation of Cameron Post, marked the Top location average of any film, or $26,500, upon debuting in 2 theaters. The film was shown in the open-air format.
