Noah storms to top of US box office

PFW is delighted to learn that Darren Aronofsky's Noah, starring Russell Crowe, has opened at the top of the US box office, taking $44m (£26.4m) over the weekend.

"I think these biblical-themed movies are like the next frontier in Hollywood," said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for box office tracker Rentrak.

"Hollywood hadn't cracked the code on a biblical movie that would have mainstream appeal. Now, I think they've figured it out," he added.

Second on the box office chart was teen science fiction thriller, Divergent, starring Shailene Woodley and Kate Winslet, which took $26.6m (£15.9m) in its second week of release.

Muppets Most Wanted, also in its second week, took third spot with $11.4m (£6.8m).
