LOS ANGELES (AP) — Even after a nearly 10-year hiatus, "Jason Bourne" still has it at the box office. The Matt Damon-led sequel has raked in a healthy $60 million in its opening weekend, according to studio estimates Sunday.

Not adjusted for inflation, it's the second highest opening of the series, behind "The Bourne Ultimatum."

But it wasn't all about "Bourne." There was something for everyone at the theaters this weekend. The raunchy R-rated comedy "Bad Moms" blew past its $20 million budget, earning $23.4 million in its first days in theaters for a third place finish behind "Star Trek Beyond's" $24 million second week.

The youthful thriller "Nerve" also performed well, taking in $15.1 million since launching on Wednesday. Starring Dave Franco and Emma Roberts, "Nerve" cost a reported $20 million to make.
