’22 Jump Street’ Conquers Weekend Box Office with $60 Million

1

22 Jump Street has become one of the year’s biggest surprises at the U.S. box office after debuting with $60 million on Sunday.

The comedy, featuring Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill as hapless detectives, was expected to open with $50 million (GBP31 million) but it over-performed, beating animated sequel How to Train Your Dragon 2 to the top spot by $10 million (GBP6.25 million).

Wonder what this will mean for that little bet that Jonah Hill still needs to pay out for Channing Tatum? We’re pretty sure Hill is glad he didn’t take Tatum’s offer to double down.

Angelina Jolie’s Disney hit Maleficent was third with a $19 million, while Tom Cruise’s action film Edge of Tomorrow and The Fault in Our Stars round out the new top five.
