Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sequel tops US box office.


The latest Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film has topped the US box office on its opening weekend, taking $35.3m (24.2m).

But the movie was not as successful as its predecessor, which took $65.6m (45.4m) when it opened in August 2014.

Last week's number one, X-Men: Apocalypse, slipped to number two with earnings of $22.3m (15.5m).

Me Before You, based on the best-selling novel by Jojo Moyes, debuted at number three despite mixed reviews.

The film sees Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke play a young woman who falls in love with a disabled banker played by Sam Claflin.

Alice Through the Looking Glass, starring Johnny Depp, fell to number four, grossing just under $10.7m (7.4m) in its second weekend.

The Angry Birds Movie rounded off the top five, making $9.8m (6.8m).
