Disney's "Dumbo" isn't exactly taking flight at the North American box office the way its other live-action remakes of animated classics have.

The Walt Disney Co. said Sunday that the Tim Burton-directed film has earned an estimated $45 million domestically against a $170 million production budget. It's less than half of what "Beauty and the Beast," "The Jungle Book" and Burton's own "Alice in Wonderland" opened to.

The remake of the 1941 animated film stars Colin Farrell and Danny DeVito. It got mixed to poor reviews from critics and has a middling 53 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.

Audiences who did turn out, however, had a different response than the critics and gave the film an A- overall, according to CinemaScore.

Disney has two other live-action remakes coming out this year in "Aladdin" (May 24) and "The Lion King" (July 19). "For Disney, the bar is set so high," said Paul Dergarabedian with comScore.

"Dumbo" bumped Jordan Peele's "Us" to second place. "Us" added $33.6 million, bringing its domestic total to $128.2 million in its second week. The Lupita Nyong'o doppelgänger movie cost only $20 million to produce.
