Spy has taken the number one spot at the U.S. box office - toppling San Andreas after just one week.



Spy marks the return of Paul Feig to the director's chair, while he reunites with actress Melissa McCarthy for their third project together.

The movie, which also stars Jason Statham, Jude Law, and Rose Byrne, took $30 million in its opening weekend to end the reign of San Andreas.

San Andreas has been enjoying huge box office success but slipped one place in the U.S. this weekend and had to settle for number two.

Insidious: Chapter Three - which takes us back to the very beginning of this story - was new in at three, while Entourage was the third and final new entry at number four.

Mad Max: Fury Road was down just one at number five - the movie has crossed the $300 million at the global box office this weekend.

Pitch Perfect 2 and Tomorrowland were the two biggest fallers this week as they dropped four places from two and three to six and seven.

Avengers: Age of Ultron was also down this week as it dropped three places from five to eight. However, the movie has just become the fifth highest grossing movie of all time - leapfrogging Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2.

Aloha, which marks the return of Cameron Crowe to the director's chair has come in for a lot of criticism this week and slipped three places from six to nine.

Horror movie Poltergeist rounded off the top ten as it slipped three places from last week's number seven.
