PHILADELPHIA (CBS) ‘The Boss Baby’ remains the boss of the box office.

The animated comedy featuring the voice of Alec Baldwin earned an estimated $26-million, scoring a second consecutive first-place triumph.

But it was another photo finish.

The third and fourth slots went to debuting releases.

The animated comedy, ‘The Smurfs: The Last Village,’ was third with a total of $14-million, while the heist comedy, ‘Going in Style,’ starring Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, and Alan Arkin, placed fourth with just under $13-million.
