Box Office Breakdown: Bourne Takes Down the Dark Knight

Jeremy Renner in 'The Bourne Legacy'

With a little help from the Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis comedy The Campaign, the latest Bourne film -- which sees Jeremy Renner replace Matt Damon in the starring role -- The Bourne Legacy was able to make its way past The Dark Knight Rises to the top of the box office this past weekend with $40.2 million.

Ferrell's political comedy debuted in second place with $27.4 million, bumping last week's number one, The Dark Knight Rises, to number three with $19.5 million. The Meryl Streep romantic comedy Hope Springs debuted at number four with $15.6 million while Diary of Wimpy Kid: Dog Days slipped two spots to number five with $8.2 million.
