The Accountant topples The Girl On The Train at US box office
Ben Affleck's latest film, The Accountant, has topped the US box office on its opening weekend.
The crime drama, which also stars Anna Kendrick and Oscar winner JK Simmons, took $24.7m (£20.3m), holding off competition from Kevin Hart: What Now?.
The US comedian's concert film took $11.98m (£9.8m).
The two new entries knocked last week's number one, The Girl On The Train, based on the novel of the same name by Paula Hawkins, down to number three.
The film, which stars Emily Blunt and Justin Theroux, took $11.97m (£9.82m) on its second weekend of release.
