The new movie adaptation of John le Carre's novel, which stars Oldman and Colin Firth, brought in $4.3 million (£2.8 million) in its opening weekend (17-18Sep11) following its debut at the Venice Film Festival in Italy earlier this month (Sep11).
Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, which was first brought to life as a 1979 Bbc drama series starring Sir Alec Guinness, took the number one slot and knocked The Inbetweeners movie into second place.
The TV show's big screen spin-off garnered $1.8 million (£1.2 million), ahead of Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis' comedy Friends With Benefits at three ($1.4 million/£936,025). The top five is rounded out by Jane Eyre ($1.1 million/£734,071) and The Change-Up ($1.09 million/£727,497) at four and five respectively.
