Quentin Tarantino's World War II movie Inglourious Basterds, starring Brad Pitt, has entered the North American box office chart at number one.

布拉德皮特主演的昆汀塔伦蒂诺的二战电影Inglourious Basterds进入北美票房排行榜第一位。

The film took $37.6m (£22.2m) in its opening weekend, replacing low-budget alien saga1(传说,英雄事迹) District 9 at the top.

It gives Tarantino the best opening weekend of his career, beating the mark set by Kill Bill: Vol 2 in 2004.

His latest outing also scored big debuts2 in other countries including France and Germany.

The movie tells the story of a group of Jewish-American commandos(突击队,民兵) who plot to take violent revenge against the Nazis3.

Big hitters

Its performance provides a success for movie moguls(显要人物,权势之人) Harvey and Bob Weinstein, who have failed to make an impact at the box office and the Oscars since the launch of their new company in 2005.

The pair were previously4 behind a string of big hitters including Shakespeare In Love, Chicago and Tarantino's 1994 hit Pulp5 Fiction.

The weekend's box office showed little change, with last week's hits including GI Joe and The Time Traveler's Wife remaining in the top five.

District 9, produced by Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson, is on course to surpass the $100m mark.
