R-rated Margot Robbie film disrobes ‘Fifty Shades’

Margot Robbie and Will Smith’s con-man caper Focus has taken out the top spot at the US box office.

According to studio estimates on Sunday, Warner Bros’ Focus easily topped all competitors on a weekend with little competition at North American multiplexes.

The R-rated Focus overwhelmingly appealed to adults, with 88 per cent of its audience older than 25.

In second place was the Colin Firth spy thriller Kingsman: The Secret Service, which made $US11.8 million ($A15.1 million) in its third week of release.

After two weeks atop the box office, Fifty Shades of Grey continued its steep slide, landing in fourth with an estimated $US10.9 million for Universal Pictures.
