NEW YORK >> It took Alec Baldwin in diapers to bring down “Beauty and the Beast.”

The 20th Century Fox release and DreamWorks Animation production “The Boss Baby,” featuring the voice of Baldwin as the film’s pipsqueak protagonist, was the weekend’s no. 1 film. It opened with $50.2 million, according to final box-office figures from comScore.

The gap between it and “Beauty and the Beast” (the box-office leader the last two weeks) was a little greater than expected, too. “Beauty and the Beast” trailed in second with $45.4 million in its third weekend.

Paramount Pictures’ controversy-plagued “Ghost in the Shell,” made for $110 million, flopped in its debut. It sold $18.7 million in tickets.
