The animated Disney film about intrepid rabbit police officer Judy Hopps, who works with a fox to solve a crime in the Zootopia animal kingdom, easily saw off the opening of "The Divergent Series: Allegiant," according to estimates from industry tracker Exhibitor Relations. "Zootopia" had surpassed the 2013 Disney blockbuster "Frozen" on its opening weekend on March 4-6 and has a total $201.8 million in its three weeks at the movies. "Allegiant," the latest in a series of films based on the action-adventure novels by the American author Veronica Roth, has had lukewarm reviews and made $29.1 million from Friday to Sunday on its debut in cinemas. Third in the box-office standings was another new entrant, "Miracles from Heaven," a drama about a young girl suffering from a rare digestive disorder who finds herself miraculously cured. It pulled in $15 million at the box office, relegating low-budget horror flick "10 Cloverfield Lane" into fourth ($12.5 million). Producer J.J. Abrams has billed the movie as a "spiritual sequel" to the riginal "Cloverfield," which stunned Hollywood with earnings of $40.1 million during its opening weekend in 2008. Superhero blockbuster "Deadpool" continued its slide, down to fifth in the standings with $8 million. Rounding out the rest of the top 10 were: -- "London Has Fallen" ($6.9 million) -- "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot" ($2.8 million) -- "The Perfect Match" ($1.9 million) -- "The Brothers Grimsby" ($1.5 million) -- "The Revenant" ($1.2 million)
