The latest installment of the Bourne series, starring Matt Damon, has topped the US box office on its opening weekend of release.

Jason Bourne, took an impressvive $60m (€53.7) in ticket sales, beating last weekend’s top draw, Star Trek Beyond, into second place.

Damon reprises the role of the former CIA assasin, who he last played in 2007, in the hugely successful Bourne Ultimatium.

He stars alongside Alicia Vikander and Tommy Lee Jones, in the fifth installment of the Bourne series.

So far, the film has received favourable reviews, with RTÉ Entertainment awarding it a 3.5 star rating just last week. That review can be accessed here.
