The Wizarding World has moved on from Harry Potter and a new era is here with Fantastic beasts and Where To Find Them, which this weeks predictably hits the top in America.

The film may not have hits the heights that were expected as the film makes its debut with with $75 million dollars (£60 million) but still is a fantastic debut.

This debut is no where near as big as any of the Harry Potter film, but to many that series of films defined the Wizarding World, but this new series has had better reviews so may last longer, Potter films tended to be front loaded.

Still doing well is last weeks top film, Doctor Strange, which only falls into second place this week with $17.6 million and a total gross of $181.5 million, this also makes it the highest total grossing film on the US box office.

Also new this week in America are The Edge of Seventeen at number 7 with $4 million and Bleed for This at number 8 with $2.3 million.

Longest running film on the box office this week is The Accountant which has been on the box office for 6 weeks and this week is at number 9.
