Bourne Tops Box Office, Star Trek Drops Big

Jason Bourne Box Office

The Bourne franchise topped the box office this weekend. Star Trek Beyond dropped large.

Matt Damon returned to the Bourne franchise for the first time in 9 years, and it looks like that move has paid off for all involved. Jason Bourne opened easily at number one at the box office this weekend with $59.2 million. It wasn’t even close, more than doubling the second place Star Trek Beyond, which was in its second week of release.

Beyond‘s significant drop – over 58% to $24.8 million – is the bigger story coming out of the weekend. The third in the rebooted Star Trek franchise, Beyond is currently looking to be a commercial failure, which may kill the potential for any future Trek movies.

In other box office news, Bad Moms opened third, just barely behind Beyond, at $23.8 million. Given its budget, the film can already be considered a success. Thrill-seeking Nerve opened at number 8 with $9.5 million, although it made a significant chunk of change before the weekend with its Wednesday opening, closing the weekend with a total of $15.5 million.

Here is the top ten for the weekend:

1. Jason Bourne ($59.2 million, week 1)
2. Star Trek Beyond ($24.8 million, week 2)
3. Bad Moms ($23.8 million, week 1)
4. The Secret Life of Pets ($18.9 million, week 4)
5. Ice Age: Collision Course ($11 million, week 2)
6. Lights Out ($10.8 million, week 2)
7. Ghostbusters ($10.1 million, week 3)
8. Nerve ($9.5 million, week 1)
9. Finding Dory ($4.3 million, week 7)
10. The Legend of Tarzan ($2.5 million, week 5)
