Russell Crowe's Noah has debuted in the number one spot at the US box office.



The biblical epic - which also stars Jennifer Connelly, Emma Watson and Ray Winstone - took an estimated $44 million during its opening weekend.

It comfortably beat its predicted $30 million opening, knocking Divergent down to number two with $26.5 million.

Muppets Most Wanted slipped to number three and took $11.4 million. Last week, the sequel opened to a disappointing $16.5 million, which was down from the $29.2 million that its predecessor took during its opening weekend.

Mr Peabody & Sherman dropped 19.7% on last week and fell to fourth place on this week's countdown, taking $9,500,000.

God's Not Dead remained consistent with only a slight decrease to $9,075,000 during its second weekend, dropping one place to complete the top five.

The Grand Budapest Hotel enjoyed a 30% rise with $8,825,000 and rose to number six, while Arnold Schwarzenegger's Sabotage performed poorly, opening to just $5,330,000.

Last year, Schwarzenegger's Escape Plan and The Last Stand both disappointed at the box office, with $25 million and $12 million respectively.

300: Rise of An Empire, Non-Stop and Need For Speed also feature in this week's top ten.
