"Kingsman: The Secret Service" collects another USD11.8 million, giving it yet another week as first runner-up. Last week's third place, "The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water", similarly refuses to slide down, squeezing another USD10.8 million into its growing collection over the weekend.
Over in Malaysia, "Kingsman: The Secret Service" switches place with last week's big winner, moving up to number one while "From Vegas to Macau 2" moves down to number two.
Newly released "King of Mahjong", featuring Hong Kong's Chapman To and Singapore's Mark Lee, settles for number three.
Meanwhile Singapore's local movie "Ah Boys to Men 3: Frogmen", does not croak from the chart's top spot. "Kingsman: The Secret Service" makes another switch with the chart's other runner-up, effectively moving up to second place as "Dragon Blade" falls down to third.
