Ryan Reynolds' superhero movie Green Lantern has shot to the top of the box office charts with an opening weekend $52.7 million take.

The film was an easy winner among new releases, with Jim Carrey's family comedy Mr. Popper's Penguins coming in third with $18.2 million.

The two debuts sandwiched last week's chart topper, Super 8, which slipped to two on the new box office countdown.

The new top five is rounded out by prequel X-Men: First Class and sequel The Hangover Part II.
