NEW YORK (AP) -- In its third week of wide-release, Alejandro Inarritu's Oscar-nominated "The Revenant" rose to the top of box office with $16 million, according to final studio figures Monday.

"The Revenant" ascended to no. 1 amid the kind of snowy conditions central to the frigid and brutal 1820s frontier thriller. The snowstorm that battered the East Coast - and caused hundreds of movie theaters to temporarily close - took approximately a 10 percent bite out of overall North America receipts.

Last week's top film, the Kevin Hart-Ice Cube comedy "Ride Along 2," dipped heavily to third with $12.5 million in its second week. A trio of poorly reviewed new releases - "Dirty Grandpa," ''The Boy" and "The 5th Wave" - all struggled to make a dent.

The top 20 movies at U.S. and Canadian theaters Friday through Sunday, followed by distribution studio, gross, number of theater locations, average receipts per location, total gross and number of weeks in release, as compiled Monday by Rentrak:
