The latest young adult drama in theaters, “Divergent,” was released in theaters this past weekend. New additions also include “Muppets Most Wanted” and “God’s Not Dead.” On Monday, March 24, the Box Office updated their charts to feature the top 10 movies of the weekend.

While Summit Entertainment’s “Divergent” didn’t beat the “Hunger Games” franchise, it still opened with $56 million. The number is impressive for the film being the first of the series. “Divergent” is based on Veronica Roth’s bestselling books of the same name. The series stars Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Miles Teller, and Jai Courtney.

“Muppets Most Wanted,” however, did not do nearly as well. Although it debuted at number two, “Muppets” only collected $16.5 million. A low sum when compared to the $29 million its previous installment opened to. Besides Kermit and Miss Piggy, “Muppets Most Wanted” stars Tina Fey, Ricky Gervais, and Ty Burrell.

Lastly, new debut “God’s Not Dead” managed to bring in $8.5 million. This places the faith drama at number five. Below are the top 10 films this past weekend:

  1. “Divergent” $56 million
  2. “Muppets Most Wanted” $16.5 million
  3. “Mr. Peabody & Sherman” $11.7 million
  4. “300: Rise of An Empire” $8.6 million
  5. “God’s Not Dead” $8.5 million
  6. “Need for Speed” $7.7 million
  7. “The Grand Budapest Hotel” $6.7 million
  8. “Non-Stop” $6.3 million
  9. “The LEGO Movie” $4.1 million
  10. “Tyler Perry’s The Single Moms Club” $3.1 million
