An excellent result for the female led Ghostbusters movie, although good reviews have helped and the marketing push to banish the negativity has certainly helped.

Here is the global top 5
The film had a fantastic first day of release which put it in good stead to top the box office, and it finally took over $40 million from the weekend.
Compared to the 2013 original this film is just a shade below but it is certainly in the same ballpark which gives it every opportunity to finally gross about the same $137 million.
The Conjuring 2 comes in ahead of the weeks other new releases in the shape of, Warcraft at number 2 and Now You See Me 2 at number 3.
Highest total grossing movie on the US box office this week is The Jungle Book which has now taken $353 million at the US box office.
Brendan O'Carroll transvestite creation takes a second week gross of £2.2 million which gives it a 10 day gross (2 weekends) of £9.3 million, not bad really.
With little movement on the box office worth mentioning is How To Train Your Dragon 2, still on previews it took £475,270 over the weekend, it has now taken £1.5 million before it's official release on Friday.
Another film doing this is Transformers: Age of Extinction which had previews from Saturday evening and took £s;4.7 million and would have been the top film, this will be added to the opening gross next week so the film WILL be number 1.

The only other new film this week is The 100 Year Old Man Who Climbed Out The Window and Disappeared at 11.
Looking backA Year ago Despicable Me was still a the top of the UK box office keeping Now You See Me from the top meaning it debuted at 2.
Five years ago Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs was the new top film which it did on it's debut week of release.
Ten years ago number one and highest new film was Shrek 2 which knocked Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban from the top.
Fifteen years ago The Mummy was still the top film in the UK while Sean Connery was the highest new entry at 2 with Entrapment.
Twenty yeas ago the original The Flintstones movie was the top film in the country for the month of July knocking Four Weddings and a Funeral from the top.
Twenty five years ago Batman was still the top film for the month of July but Indianan Jones and the Last Crusade and Licence to Kill were doing well.
The animated sequel took close to £4 million pound over the weekend, and despite a drop of £10 million from it's debut it stayed comfortably.
The strongest challenge of the week was from Now You See Me, debuting at 2 with a take of just under £3 million for the 3 day weekend.
According to my prediction Now You See Me did much better than I expected, I predicted a top 5 entry and didn't expect it to debut at number 2
The other new film I predicted last weekend to enter the box office chart was The Internship, which debuted at 3. I expected this to be the big challenge for Despicable Me 2.
This time last year The Amazing Spider-man took the box office by story, the reboot film flew into the top spot with a debut of £11 million and left the rest of the box office dead.
Five years ago Will Smith starred in the superhero movie Hancock and debuted at the top with just under £10 million knocking Prince Caspian from the top.
Ten years ago Charlies Angels: Full Throttle debuted at the top knocking Jim Carey in Bruce Almighty from the top.
Fifteen years ago there was a fairly static box office with Six Days Seven Nights retaining to box office crown.
Twenty years ago Jurassic Park was the big film of the summer and although Arnie was challenging with Last Action Hero it was never a threat to the dinosaur film.
Now You See Me has a host of big names, Morgan Freeman, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher, Jesse Eisenberg and not forgetting our own Michael Caine. The story is a bank heist, of sorts, by a group of magicians.
Not much buzz or excitement around this film, it opens on a Wednesday but with little excitement it will probably have a top 5 entry.
The Internship is a Google based film about a couple of “old people” who win an internship at the search giants. Everyone who works there is very young and the 2 older guys do their best to win favour and do a good job.
Starring 2 massive comedy names in Vince Vaughn and Own Wilson, and a massive advertising campaign this could see a good opening weekend, not strong enough to displace Despicable Me 2 and I think it may struggle with Man of Steel but 3rd place entry.
Come back next week to see if I came close to predicting the entries of these 2 films.
