The sequel to 2006 hit 300 slayed the competition at cinemas this weekend, earning $45.1 million dollars in the US and Canada and 87.8 million dollars worldwide.

300: Rise of an Empire did not equal its predecessor's first weekend tally of 70.9 million dollars in North America, but still performed far above expectations.

Set in ancient Greece, it depicts a sea battle between Greeks and Persians.

The film only briefly features 300 star Gerard Butler as King Leonidas - leader of the Spartan army who famously held off a vastly superior Persian force - concentrating instead on a female warrior played by Casino Royale's Eva Green.
