NEW YORK (AP) — The weekend debut of Disney’s “Cinderella” was revised down to $67.9 million in final box-office figures Monday.

The $2.2 million drop from Sunday’s estimate of $70.1 was a larger adjustment than usual, though “Cinderella” still comes in as one of the year’s biggest hits. The slide put Kenneth Branagh’s live-action “Cinderella” behind the opening of Disney’s last live-action fairy tale, “Maleficent,” which debuted with $69.4 million in May 2014.

Warner Bros.’ Liam Neeson thriller “Run All Night” was mightily outshined by “Cinderella.” The week’s only other major new wide-release opened weakly with $11 million, making it Neeson’s worst debut as an action film star.
