NEW YORK (AP) — "Kingsman: The Golden Circle" came in a little shy of expectations but still managed to move New Line's horror hit "It" off the top spot at the North American box office.

Fox's spy comedy sequel to 2015's "Kingsman" debuted with $39 million, according to final figures Monday. The film cost $104 million to make, but improved little on the original's $36 million opening two years ago.

After two weeks atop the box office, New Line's "It" slid to second with $29.8 million in its third weekend of release.

Ticket sales were disappointing for Warner Bros.' "The Lego Ninjago Movie," which opened with $20.4 million. The release was the second "Lego Movie" spinoff of the year, following "The Lego Batman Movie," possibly hurting the performance of "Ninjago."
