LOS ANGES: Ryan Reynolds has had a tough week at the US box office, with two new films struggling to attract audiences. The actor starred in two new releases, crime caper RIPD and animated comedy Turbo, both of which cost more than $130m (£85m) to make.

But RIPD, a police story with a supernatural twist, took just $12.8m, entering the chart at number seven.  Turbo, about a snail with ambitions to become a racing champion, fared a little better, taking $21.5m. It took third place, but was beaten by rival animation Despicable Me 2, which made $25m - despite having been on release for three weeks.–BBC
