Jason Bourne made a killer comeback this past weekend, opening #1 at the US box office with an estimated $60 million.

According to Box Office Mojo, this is nearly $22 million more than the Matt Damon-less Bourne Legacy grossed during its opening weekend in 2012. However, Jason Bourne couldn’t top The Bourne Ultimatum, which made $69.2 million when it first hit theaters in 2007. Jason Bourne did have the franchise’s biggest international opening, though, making $50.1 million overseas.

Meanwhile, Star Trek Beyond struggled during its second weekend, dropping to #2 with an estimated $24 million. This 60% drop doesn’t bode well for the latest Trek film, which has made $105 million on a $185 million budget thus far.

Jason Bourne beats Star Trek Beyond.

Bad Moms had a solid opening weekend, coming in #3 with $23.4 million. The comedy has already surpassed its $20 million budget, which means it will likely go on to show a profit.

Meanwhile, The Secret Life of Pets fell to #4 with an estimated $18.2 million, bringing its domestic total to just under $300 million. Rounding out the top five was Lights Out with an estimated $10.8 million. Nerve, this weekend’s other new release, fell below expectations with an estimated $9 million and $15 million total, ultimately coming in #8.
