Kingsman holds top spot at weekend box office, but The Emoji Movie climbs back to second

It has now made a total of $7.32m.

Fourth was horror film IT, which made another $1.439m over the weekend. The film has made almost $22m in total since its premiere more than two weeks ago.

Fifth was sci-fi film Flatliners, collecting $1.222m on its premiere weekend at box office.

The Sony film tells the story of five medical students who embark on an experiment to gain insight into what lies beyond life.
