Kung Fu Panda 3
"Kung Fu Panda 3" debuted at number one over the weekend with $41 million in ticket sales. The film features the voices of Jack Black, Angelina Jolie, Dustin Hoffman, and Kate Hudson.

In the film, the evil Kai (J.K. Simmons) steals the chi from China's kung fu masters, leaving Po (Black) with the impossible task of turning a village full of fun-loving, clumsy pandas into a powerful team of warriors.

Also at the box office, "The Revenant" took second place with $12.4 million, just one day after Oscar favorite Leonardo DiCaprio won the SAG Award for his role as wilderness man Hugh Glass.

Joseph Fiennes On Playing Michael Jackson: 'I'm As Shocked As Yo
Joseph Fiennes admits it may seem odd for him to play iconic singer Michael Jackson in an upcoming British half-hour comedy special. The actor told ET about playing the King of Pop: "I'm a white, middle-class guy from London. I'm as shocked as you may be."

The film is a "light tongue-and-cheek look" based on an urban legend published in a 2011 Vanity Fair article. It centers on Marlon Brando, Elizabeth Taylor and Jackson renting a car and taking a road trip following 9/11.

Fiennes explained: "It's kind of off the wall, but the writing is a delight, and the kind of interaction between the...
