LOS ANGELES (AP) — “Captain Marvel” has continued to dominate the global box office in its second weekend in theaters, leaving newcomers in the dust.

Walt Disney Studios on Sunday estimates that the intergalactic superhero has earned an additional $69.3 million from North American theaters and $120 million internationally, bringing its global grosses to $760 million.

In a very distant second, Paramount’s animated family film “Wonder Park” struggled with $16 million against a reported $100 million budget.

“Five Feet Apart” took third place. CBS Films and Lionsgate’s teen romance managed to nearly double its production budget with an estimated $13.2 million in ticket sales.

“How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World” dropped to fourth place with around $9.3 million and Tyler Perry’s “A Madea Family Funeral” landed in fifth with $8.1 million.
