Becoming one of Pixar's lowest opening weekends, the Dan Scanlon-directed animated film's $40 million earning in its first weekend is blamed on coronavirus concerns.

AceShowbiz - "Onward" debuted at the top of the North American box office with one of Pixar's lowest opening weekends.

The animated film raked in $40 million (£30.6 million), with cinema experts putting the unexpectedly low earnings down to coronavirus concerns.

"Onward" also lagged globally, picking up $28 million (£21.4 million) in 47 territories - $12 million (£9.2 million) below the forecasted result.

Thriller "The Invisible Man" comes in second in the U.S. with a second weekend $15.1 million (£11.6 million) take, and Ben Affleck's basketball drama "The Way Back" debuts at three.

"Sonic the Hedgehog" and "The Call of the Wild" complete the new top five.
