Disney's sequel starring Angelina Jolie makes its debut on the global box office this week and easily does so at the top with a weekend take of $153 Million from 57 countries.
The Mouse House will be celebrating with the success of another franchise film, but with caution as the film has come no-where near the opening gross of the original movie.
The movie has had a good response from paying movie goers despite being panned by critics which could be part the reason for the lower than expected debut, or it could be just that no one really wanted this sequel!
After a couple of weeks at the top the much praised DC villain movie falls to number 2 with a weekend gross of $107 Million from 80 countries.
This puts the Joaquin Phoenix starring movie at a total gross of $737.5 Million on its third weekend and the studio will surely be looking at the $1 Billion mark being possible for the movie.
The Will Smith starring movie has been a bit of a bomb at the box office and this week falls to number 3 with $41.9 Million from 60 countries.
The film has been in global cinemas for 3 weeks now and has a total gross of just $118.7 Million.
10 years after the first film the Zombieland franchise now gets a sequel which makes it global debut at number 4 this week with $32 Million from just 18 countries.
The original film has a cult following and the sequel is largely relying on that to pull in the audience, but the reviews have been a little tepid for the film.
The Chinese language animation makes its debut at number 5 this week with a gross of $21.8 Million from just 3 countries.
The movie has actually been in Cinemas since the beginning of August in Japan and has in the last week expanded to Europe, hence has taken a quite respectable $78.4 Million so far.
