Elsewhere Dwayne Johnson’s Jumanji sequel, The Next Level, dropped down to fifth, with new entry The Turning, a horror movie starring Mackenzie Davis, opened with $6.9m.

Elsewhere Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker was seeing more of a fall in seventh despite surpassing $500m in its six weeks, with Greta Gerwig’s Little Women adaptation, Michael B Jordan’s drama Just Mercy and Rian Johnson’s whodunit comedy Knives Out completing the top ten.
