Jack the Giant Slayer has debuted at number one in the Us box office with $28m.

Based on the fairy tales Jack the Giant Killer and Jack and the Beanstalk, Jack the Giant Slayer stars Nicholas Hoult as the young farmhand Jack, who accidentally opens a gateway between the kingdom and the world of the Giants.

Jack and the Giant Slayer, also starring Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci and Bill Nighy, knocked down last weekend's number one movie Identity Thief to second place.

The Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy comedy earned $9.7m, adding to its total earnings of $107m.

Two more new releases also made it to the top ten list - 21 and Over with $9m and The Last Exorcism Part II with $8m.

A Good Day to Die Hard, the latest instalment of the Die Hard franchise, slipped from five to nine with $4.5m. Its total earnings are now $59.6m. »
