'22 Jump Street' reached first place at the US Weekend Box Office. The comedy starring Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill gained $60 million in its opening weekend and is likely to stay at the top of the Box Office this weekend, if the new competition is anything to go by.
22 Jump Street and How To Train Your Dragon 2 have topped the US weekend box office. The two newcomers gained, respectively, first and second position knocking, The Fault In Our Stars off the top spot. The latter film has plummeted to fifth two weeks after its release. Maleficent remains in the top three, having being pushed out of second position by HTTYD2. But after two weeks, the Disney re-envisioning of the Sleeping Beauty fairytale is doing fairly well.
22 Jump Street, which stars Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill as two undercover cops in college, has received positive reviews from critics and has evidently won over audiences with the reprisal of childish antics and easy laughs we encountered in the original, 21 Jump Street. It's the perfect film for the summer months and with the new competition released this weekend (20th June), may not be out of the box office top ten for some time. So what is on offer for this weekend?

Despite achieving the fame they so desperately yearned for as young musicians, with success brought a lot of struggles; the band members' relationships became frequently tested, particularly as both fans and producers became interested in bringing Frankie's voice out more and more. Meanwhile, they had their personal lives to worry about with family troubles and problems involving the Mob - but in the end, the successes of tunes such as 'Sherry', 'Big Girls Don't Cry' and 'Walk Like a Man' would make them the one of the most iconic acts of the decade.
