Bourne show box office supremacy
LOS ANGELES, USA (AP) — The Dark Knight Rises has finally fallen out of first-place at the weekend box office.
Jeremy Renner's action tale The Bourne Legacy took over as the No 1 movie with a US$40.3 million debut, according to studio estimates yesterday.
Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis' political comedy The Campaign opened at No 2 with US$27.4 million.
The new movies pushed The Dark Knight Rises down to third place with US$19.5 million, raising the superhero blockbuster's three-week domestic total to US$390.1 million.
The weekend's other new wide release, Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones' marital comic drama "Hope Springs," opened at No 4 with US$15.6 million.
The Dark Knight Rises had been the No. 1 movie for three-straight weekends since debuting amid tragedy as a gunman killed 12 people and wounded 58 at a midnight screening of the film on opening day in Colorado.
The violence seems to have had little effect on the runaway success of the Batman finale.
