'Spy', Melissa McCarthy's latest hit action comedy with her 'Bridesmaids'/'The Heat' director Paul Feig, clocked up an impressive $86.5 million worldwide in its first weekend. The film's US debut ($30m) was considered a bit soft, which pundits say may be due to audience frustration with McCarthy's less enjoyable recent films 'The Identity Thief' and 'Tammy'. But 'Spy' has a 7.6/10 audience rating at IMDb and an impressive critics' score of 95% positive at Rotten Tomatoes.

This has already put 'Spy' into the top 100 of spy movies as ranked by Box Office Mojo. 'Despicable Me 2', 'Skyfall' and 'The Bourne Ultimatum' hold the top three slots, followed by three 'Mission: Impossible' films and two 'Austin Powers' movies.

McCarthy's films tend to have longer lives in cinemas than most, so look for 'Spy' to add considerably to its box office haul, especially since there are very few female-driven blockbusters still to come this summer. That said, 'Spy' doesn't stand a chance of keeping the top spot on the charts with 'Jurassic World' incoming this weekend.

Meanwhile, Disney has taken a rare bump this year (they have Marvel and 'Star Wars' to soothe their worries), as 'Tomorrowland' failed to live up to expectations. The film has taken $170 million so far, but it cost an estimated $180 million to make, and with marketing costs added in has a long way to go before turning even a small profit. Other box office disappointments this year include 'Jupiter Ascending' and 'Seventh Son'.
