There are few things that are more of a sure bet at the box office than a young adult novel-turned-franchise. Insurgent, the latest film in the Divergent series, didn't fail to deliver, hauling in $54 million in its first weekend. The film, starring Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort, as well as Mekhi Phifer, Octavia Spencer and Zoe Kravitz, fell just short of Divergent's $54.6 million take last year.
Coming in at number two was Cinderella, which boasted $34.5 million in gross, while Liam Neeson's latest action thriller, Run All Night, in which Common co-stars, bested Sean Penn's The Gunman by a hair for third place. Run All Night's total came in at $5.1 million, while the Gunman fell short at $5 million.
Kingsman: The Secret Service, starring Colin Firth and Samuel L. Jackson, rounded out the top five with $4.6 million.
