Subject: Hotel Transylvania sets box office record

Written By: Philip Eno on 09/28/15 at 6:23 am

Kids film Hotel Transylvania 2 has set a US box office record, taking $47.5 (£31.2m) in its first weekend in cinemas.

That's the biggest-ever opening weekend for a film released in September, beating the previous record set by (wait for it) Hotel Transylvania.

The animation, which stars Adam Sandler, Mel Brooks and Selena Gomez, far exceeded expectations - Sony Pictures had only predicted a paltry $32m.

And its success is likely to continue, as it's the only major kids film scheduled for release until November, when the Peanuts movie hits the big screen.

The US box office top 5 looks like this:

1. Hotel Transylvania 2
2. The Intern
3. Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials
4. Everest
5. Black Mass
