Based on young adult fantasy book series, Sony Screen Gems has already committed to a sequel.

The top five is completed by Disney’s Planes, a spin-off of Cars, which took $8.6 million.

The global box office chart, which excludes the US and Canada, was dominated by Jurassic Park, which has been re-released in 3D. Its strong showing, with $30 million, bodes well for the franchise restarting next year with Jurassic Park 4.

Second in the global chart was Matt Damon’s Elysium, followed by Monster’s University and Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters.
