Universal’s “Kung Fu Panda 4” fell to third place with $16.8 million in its third weekend, bringing its domestic total to $133.2 million.

In fourth place was the weekend’s other new release, “Immaculate,” which debuted with $5.4 million on 2,354 screens. The horror film starring Sydney Sweeney as an American nun at a remote Italian convent premiered at SXSW, costing less than $10 million to make.
