Trainwreck tops box office while The Fantastic Four has less than amazing opening weekend

Romantic comedy Trainwreck steamrolled its way to the top of the box office for the first time over the weekend, three weeks after it opened.

The Amy Schumer and Bill Hader offering made $3.2m after the number of screens showing it increased to 396, up from 211 last week and 236 on its opening weekend.

Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation slipped to second with takings of $2.687m across 405 screens, down from last week’s high of $5.019m from the same number of screens.

Meanwhile the latest Marvel themed film, The Fantastic Four, failed to set the box office alight, pulling in $2.619 over its opening weekend in 333 screens.

Australian film Last Cab to Darwin performed well, coming in fourth in the box with $1.148m on its debut in 221 screens.

Figures for Ant-man, fell below $1m ($905,758), putting it just ahead of Japanese animated feature film Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘f’ which took $838,281 in its opening weekend.
