The espionage comedy "Kingsman: The Golden Circle" dominated North American box offices in its debut weekend, industry figures showed Sunday.

It ousted "It", a freaky horror hit which had held the crown for two weeks.

With a star-studded cast featuring Colin Firth, Channing Tatum, Halle Berry and even Elton John, "Kingsman" raked in an estimated $39 million(R517.24 million) for the weekend, according to Exhibitor Relations.

The sequel to "Kingsman: The Secret Service", "The Golden Circle" sees British spy organization Kingsman join forces with American counterpart Statesman to take on a new global threat.

"It", based on a Stephen King novel and starring Bill Skarsgard as a creepy clown who menaces a sleepy Maine town, earned an estimated $30 million -- half its take last weekend.

But having stormed the box office in its opening weekend with revenue of $123 million, "It" still boasts impressive earnings of $266.3 million in only three weeks.

In at third was new animation "The Lego Ninjago Movie", the third instalment of Warner Bros.' "The Lego Movie" franchise, which made $21.2 million.

Trailing far behind in fourth was "American Assassin", starring Dylan O'Brien as a CIA "black ops" recruit who teams up with crusty veteran agent Michael Keaton to fight terrorists. The film took in just $6.2 million, bringing its total earnings to $21.6 million in two weeks.

Now in its third week, Open Road Films' "Home Again" dropped one place to fifth with a take of $3.3 million. With earnings totaling $22.3 million, the romantic comedy stars Reese Witherspoon as a newly single woman whose life changes when three young men move into her house.

Rounding out the top 10 were:

"Mother!" ($3.2 million)

"Friend Request" ($2.4 million)

"The Hitman's Bodyguard" ($1.8 million)

"Stronger" ($1.7 million)

"Wind River" ($1.2 million).

    I think that everything posted was actually very
    reasonable. But, think on this, suppose you wrote a catchier title?
    I mean, I don't want to tell you how to run your website, but what if you added a headline that makes people want more?
    I mean It's All Over For 'It' As 'Kingsman' Sequel Tops Box Office is kinda plain. You might peek at Yahoo's
    front page and see how they create news headlines to grab viewers interested.
    You might add a video or a picture or two to get readers interested about everything've written. In my opinion, it could bring your blog
    a little bit more interesting.
