Kingsman: The Golden Circle not only won the box office, but its opening gross was higher than the original film. Get the details, and check out the totals for this weekend’s Top 10 movies below!

Kingsman: The Golden Circle is the sequel to 2014’s Kingsman: The Secret Service. Starring Colin Firth and Taron Egerton, the action-comedy was based on the Kingsman comic book series. Egerton, in his first big role, played a young guy recruited to be a secret spy, as trained by an agent portrayed by Firth. The second installment brought the two actors back together, joined again by director Matthew Vaughn. The cast was expanded for the new edition to also feature two pretty big names: Halle Berry and Channing Tatum. Julianne Moore came on board as well, and Elton John even appears as himself.

Though the reviews for Golden Circle were mediocre, it still debuted in the top spot with $39 million in ticket sales, which beat the $36.2 million its predecessor started out with three years ago. The film pushed two-week chart-topper It down to the runner-up position. The adaptation of the classic Stephen King novel took in another $30 million in its third weekend. Meanwhile, The Lego Ninjago Movie didn’t live up to expectations. The latest film in The Lego Movie franchise debuted with around $21.2 million to land in third place. Additionally, American Assassin secured fourth place this week with $6.3 million, and Home Again came in fifth with $3.3 million.

Rounding out the Top 10 were Mother! in sixth, with receipts totaling $3.2 million, followed by the new thriller Friend Request in seventh with $2.4 million. Coming in the eighth position was The Hitman’s Bodyguard with $1.9 million, while Stronger took ninth with $1.7 million. Just making it into the Top 10 was Wind River. The film earned $1.3 million.
