Inferno debuts in second while Masterminds fails to break box office top five

Hollywood blockbuster, Inferno, failed to knock The Girl on the Train from the top of the box office charts on its opening weekend

The sequel to the Da Vinci Code, which sees Tom Hanks reprise his role as Robert Langdon, took $2.22m on debut, less than the $2.615m The Girl on the Train managed in its second weekend, with total takings of $8.441m so far.

No other film cracked a million, with Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children third at $969,843, and Deepwater Horizon dropping to fourth, achieving $940,869 on its second weekend.

Zach Galifianakis’ flick Masterminds suffered a weak debut with $612,669 on 179 screens.

Last week the Hillsong church’s first foray into film making, Hillsong: Let Hope Rise – which follows Australian band Hillsong United and claims to have created “a new motion-picture genre—the theatrical worship experience” – debuted on 18 screens and took $199,435 across the weekend, or $11,079 per screen, with just chart-topper The Girl on the Train managing a greater return per screen.

However, its takings dropped to $32,772 this weekend on 15 screens, dropping out of the top 10.
