The Bean Bag Boys, the self-appointed nickname for the trio of best friends in Universal's 'Good Boys, ' are conquering much more than sixth grade.

It was the first time an R-rated comedy had placed No. 1 since the same studio s Melissa McCarthy film "The Boss" in early 2016, according to Hollywood Reporter.

"The Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg-produced movie is the first R-rated amusing film to open in first place in three years (since 2016's 'The Boss"), as well as the biggest opening for an original comedy this year.

Universal's kid-oriented comedy Good Boys topped the North American box office this weekend, taking in an estimated US$21 million (S$29.07 million) for the weekend, industry watcher Exhibitor Relations reported Sunday (Aug 18).

The R-rated movie, carrying a US$20 million price tag, also debuted overseas with US$2.1 million for a global start of US$23.1 million. That was also released by Universal.

In third spot for a second straight week, showing considerable staying power, was Disney s animated "The Lion King", at $11.9 million.

The film earned 2.1 million dollars in 13 worldwide territories for a global weekend of 23.1 million dollars, according to studio figures collected by measurement firm Comscore. But the $65 million-budgeted film, which opened on Tuesday is projected to earn just $8.8 million this weekend and $14.5 million six-day opening from 3,869 screens, well below the $38 million opening earned by its predecessor in 2016.

Opening out of the top 10, "Where'd You Go, Bernadette" made $3.4 million. The cast also includes Billy Crudup and Kristen Wiig.
