'The Bourne Legacy' beats 'The Dark Knight Rises' at US box office

By
The Bourne Legacy has topped the US box office on its first weekend on release.

The Bourne sequel, which sees Jeremy Renner take over the franchise from Matt Damon, pulls in an impressive $40 million to emerge as the number one movie ahead of Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis's political comedy The Campaign and The Dark Knight Rises.

Hope Springs, the romantic comedy starring Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones, debuts at number four, while Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days completes the top five.
