Disney’s remake of “The Lion King” continued to rule North American theaters over the weekend, spoiling the otherwise strong debut of Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” according to final figures released Monday.

“The Lion King” earned $76.6 million over the weekend to maintain the top spot at the box office, according to Comscore. In its two weeks of release, “The Lion King” has collected nearly $351.9 million.

“Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie, debuted with $41.4 million to secure second place.

The superhero tale “Spider-Man: Far From Home” collected another $12.4 million over the weekend, pushing its four-week total to $344.7 million. “Toy Story 4,” meanwhile, continued padding its box-office totals, earning $10.4 million to give it a six-week haul of $396.2 million.

The horror/thriller “Crawl” took fifth place with $4 million.

Rounding out the top 10 films of the weekend were “Yesterday” ($3.1 million); “Aladdin” ($3 million); “Stuber” ($1.8 million); “Annabelle Comes Home” ($1.6 million); and “The Farewell” ($1.5 million).
