NEW YORK (AP) -- Disney's "The Jungle Book" trounced a handful of underperforming new releases to rule the box office for a third consecutive week, while next week's certain champ, "Captain America: Civil War," began setting records overseas.

Jon Favreau's live-action Rudyard Kipling adaptation earned $42.4 million in its third week at North American theaters, according to studio estimates Sunday. One of the year's biggest hits, "The Jungle Book" has now totaled $684.8 million globally.

The weekend's debuts withered in the wake of "The Jungle Book." Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele's feline action-comedy "Keanu" opened with a modest $9.4 million.

Garry Marshall's latest holiday-themed romantic comedy, "Mother's Day," bowed with a weak $8.3 million, despite the presence of stars Jennifer Aniston and Julia Roberts.

In 37 international territories, "Civil War" debuted with $200.2 million.
