Box Office Top 20: 'Jason Bourne,' 'Bad Moms' start strong

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Matt Damon came back strong after his nine-year hiatus from the Bourne series this weekend. "Jason Bourne" earned $59.2 million in its first days in theaters, according to studios Monday. It easily topped the charts and is a promising start for the film, which cost around $120 million to produce.

STX Entertainment's raunchy, R-rated comedy "Bad Moms" also had a phenomenal debut, surpassing its modest $20 million production budget in its first weekend in theaters. "Bad Moms," which stars Mila Kunis, earned $23.8 million to take third place. It narrowly missed second to "Star Trek Beyond," which brought in $24.8 million in its second weekend in theaters.

Rounding out the top five were "The Secret Life of Pets" in fourth with $18.9 million, bringing its total to a whopping $296.9 million after just four weeks, and, in fifth place, "Ice Age: Collision Course" with $11 million in weekend two.
