It seems absence really does make the heart grow fonder  especially after nine years. Matt Damon’s return to the Bourne franchise with Jason Bourne (we’ll never forget you, Jeremy Renner!) formidably topped the box office this weekend, with an estimated $60 million opening in the U.S. The minimum-word flick also performed extremely well oversees, netting an additional $50.1 million in 46 territories, rendering it the best opening day in the action-thriller franchise’s history. In the U.S., the comedy Bad Momswhich stars megababes Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, and Kathryn Hahn — finished strong in third place for its debut weekend, with $23.2 million, while Star Trek Beyond, although in respectable second place, dropped in ticket sales by 60 percent, to take in a total of $24 million. The Secret Life of Pets ($18.2 million), Lights Out ($10.75 million), and Ice Age: Collision Course ($10.45 million) round out the weekend box office in the fourth, fifth, and sixth place positions, respectively.
