PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A fantasy from director Tim Burton led the way at multiplexes over the weekend.
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children finished first by earning an estimated $29-million on its debut weekend.
Another new attraction finished second:
Deepwater Horizon, a docudrama about the biggest oil spill in American history, starring Mark Wahlberg, was the runner-up with $21 million.
Falling from first place last weekend to third this weekend was the holdover western remake, The Magnificent Seven, with Denzel Washington. It took in another $16-million.
And rounding out the top five were holdovers Storks and Sully, with $14 million and $8 million, respectively.
New titles claimed the next two slots:
The slapstick comedy, Masterminds, with Zach Galifiankis, was sixth with $7-million.
And the biodrama, Queen of Katwe, with Lupita Nyong’o, earned $3-million, good for seventh place.
