Spy creeps to top of North American box office chart

Melissa Mccarthy's new comedy Spy has taken down the Entourage movie adaptation to land the top spot on the North American box office chart.

Spy debuts at number one with $30 million in takings, easily beating Entourage, which ends its opening weekend (05-07Jun15) in fourth place with a disappointing $10.4 million. The comedy drama, adapted from the hit TV show of the same name, officially launched in the U.S. and Canada on Wednesday (03Jun15), with its five-day total standing at $17.8 million.


Meanwhile, disaster epic San Andreas proved to be another popular choice in its second week on release, adding another $26.4 million to its haul to take second place, followed by new horror movie Insidious: Chapter 3 at three with a solid $23 million.


Mad Max: Fury Road rounds out the new top five at five.
