'The Bourne Ultimatum' Has An Ultimate Weekend At Box Office

We expected 'The Bourne Ultimatum' to easily take top spot in the weekend box office, over last week's topper 'The Simpsons Movie'. But even we didn't expect this.

Superspy Jason Bourne delivered the biggest August opening of a film ever with a whopping $70.2 million this weekend, easily surpassing openings of the first two films of the series.

The opening also meant that "The Simpsons Movie" saw a huge drop with just $25.6 million, down over 63% from last weekend, although it still continues to hold the top spot at the international box office.

The first film in the series, "The Bourne Identity," had an opening weekend of $27.1 million when it debuted in 2002 and "The Bourne Supremacy" took in $52.5 million in its opening weekend in 2004.

The complete list for the weekend:

1. "The Bourne Ultimatum," $70.2 million.
2. "The Simpsons Movie," $25.6 million.
3. "Underdog," $12 million.
4. "I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry," $10.5 million.
5. "Hairspray," $9.3 million.
6. "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix," $9.3 million.
7. "No Reservations," $6.6 million.
8. "Transformers," $6 million.
9. "Hot Rod," $5 million.
10. "Bratz," $4.3 million.
