Robot drama Chappie made its debut at the top of this week’s US box office after an unusually quiet weekend, in which takings were 38% down on the same time last year.

Neill Blomkamp’s film, starring Hugh Jackman, Dev Patel and Sigourney Weaver, took just $13.3 million but still topped this week’s chart.Chappie movie box office
