Downton Abbey. Focus

Downton Abbey won the weekend box office with an estimated $31 million at the domestic box office.It's the biggest opening ever for a Focus Features movie.In second place was the Disney/Fox release Ad Astra, starring Brad Pitt, with $19.2 million.Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

Though it has been off the air for four years there is clearly still an audience for Downton Abbey.

The big screen version of the show opened in theaters this weekend and the movie brought in an estimated $31 million at the domestic box office:

Despite what you may think of popular TV shows getting big screen versions, it's clear there's a market for them. Coming soon you'll see a Breaking Bad movie, Netflix's El Camino (which the streaming giant will be releasing theatrically), and movie versions of The Walking Dead and The Sopranos (the prequel The Many Saints of Newark ). Everyone involved just hopes they get the success Focus is seeing with Downton Abbey and not a dud Warner Bros. had when it made the HBO show Entourage into a movie. That opened in fourth place the weekend it was released in 2015 and ended up with a lifetime gross of just $49.2 million worldwide.

Downton Abbey beat out a lot of competition to take the top spot. Along with popular holdovers like Warner Bros.' It Chapter 2, and STXfilms' Hustlers, there were new releases like Disney/Fox's Ad Astra, starring Brad Pitt, and Lionsgate's Rambo: Last Blood.

Out of that group, Ad Astra took the second place slot this weekend with $19.2 million (20% of which came from Imax screens). A good start for a movie Disney is hoping will gain traction as we go deeper into award season.

In third place was Rambo: Last Blood with $19 million. Fourth place was It Chapter 2 with $17.2 million. And in fifth place was Hustlers with $17 million.
