“22 Jump Street” ruled the box office this weekend.
The sequel, reuniting Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum, brought in a huge $US60 million opening weekend, matching analyst estimates.
That marks the second largest opening for an R-rated movie.
2011’s “The Hangover Part II” holds that record with $85.9 million.
The first movie, released in 2012, made $US36.3 million opening weekend and went on to earn $US201.6 million worldwide.
The other big movie out this weekend, DreamWorks Animation’s “How to Train Your Dragon 2” also had a big weekend debuting to $US50 million.
The number wasn’t as big as estimates predicted, but the animated picture should continue to perform well for the studio.
