'Maleficent: Mistress of Evil' claims No. 1 over 'Joker'

'Maleficent: Mistress of Evil' claims first place at box office, ending 'Joker's' reign

LOS ANGELES -- The Walt Disney Co.'s "Maleficent: Mistress of Evil" has knocked "Joker" out of the No. 1 spot at the box office, but just barely.

Warner Bros.' "Joker" landed in second place in its third weekend with $29.2 million. The villain origin story has grossed over $247 million domestically.

Third place went to another sequel, Columbia Pictures' "Zombieland: Double Tap" with $26.7 million. The R-rated comedy comes 10 years after the original.

And in limited release, Taika Waititi's Nazi satire "Jojo Rabbit" opened in five theaters with a strong $350,000.
