Believe the hype - Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's first movie together has wowed America with a $51 million (GBP27 million) first weekend take.

Action comedy MR + MRS SMITH crashed in at the top of the new box office list yesterday (12JUN05) by more than doubling the three-day take of its nearest rival, last week's (05JUN05) number one, MADAGASCAR.

Meanwhile, Star Wars: EPISODE III - REVENGE OF THE SITH passed the $332 million (GBP175 million) mark in third place with a healthy $14.8 million (GBP7.8 million) weekend take.

The only other new entry in the new top 10 was the movie adaptation of beloved American sitcom The Honeymooners, starring Cedric The Entertainer and Gabrielle Union. The movie debuted at number seven with $5.8 million (GBP3 million).
