22 Jump Street stuns with $60 million opening weekend

Sequel 22 Jump Street has become one of the year's biggest surprises at the box office after debuting nationwide with $60 million on Sunday (15Jun14).

The comedy, featuring Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill as hapless detectives, was expected to open with $50 million but it over-performed, beating animated sequel How to Train Your Dragon 2 to the top spot by $10 million.

Angelina Jolie's Disney hit Maleficent was third with $19 million, while Tom Cruise's action film Edge of Tomorrow and The Fault in Our Stars round out the new top five.
