‘Kung Fu Panda 4’ kicks ‘Dune 2’ out of its top slot opening night

A panda with mad martial arts skills displaced the sandworm Friday.

“Kung Fu Panda 4” pulled in a whopping $19.4 million on its opening night to take the top slot in Friday’s box office, according to IMBD’s Box Office Mojo.

The latest Jack Black-led installment of the franchise pushed another sequel, “Dune 2,” down to second place, though it still took in $12.3 million.

Kung Fu fell short of hitting Dune’s opening day slot as the Timothée Chalamet-led film raked in $32 million last Friday — a movie The Post called a “sci-fi triumph that’s better than the first.”

Coming in third was “Cabrini,” which follows an Italian immigrant in New York embarking on a journey to persuade the mayor to provide housing and healthcare to orphaned children. It brought in $3 million Friday, its opening day.

“Bob Marley: One Love” continued to draw, bringing in $1.1 million nearly a month after its Valentine’s Day release date.

“Yolo,” which casts Le Ying in the role of a female boxer, took in $805,000 in its first day of a limited release to take the fifth slot.
