Star Trek Beyond is the third film in the new franchise and has grossed $59.6 million since hitting cinemas on Friday.

Justin Lin has taken over the director's chair from J.J. Abrams for the first time in what is his first film since the success of Fast & Furious 6. Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg, and Zoe Saldana were some of the familiar faces on the Star Trek Beyond cast list.

The Secret Life of Pets fell just a single place to number two while Ghostbusters was also down one this week at number three.

Horror film was the second new entry, as it opened at number four. David F. Sandberg is in the director's chair for the film while Teresa Palmer and Maria Bello star.

Ice Age: Collision Course was the third and final new entry inside the top ten this week, as the animated film opened at number five. Collision Course is the fifth film in the franchise but opened with a rather disappointing $21 million.

Finding Dory slipped out of the top five as fell from four to this week's number six. The Legend of Tarzan was this week's biggest faller as it slipped from three to number seven.

Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates was down three at eight while Hillary's America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party was up from thirty-seven to this week's number nine.

The Infiltrator was a two place faller as it ended the weekend at number ten.
