ParaNorman came in third with $8.5 million.
The Campaign and The Dark Knight Rises jockeyed for fourth and fifth places with $7.4 million and $7.1 million, respectively.
Rounding out the Top 10 were The Odd Life of Timothy Green Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s new bike messenger thriller Premium Rush ($6.3 million), the anti-Barack doc 2016: Obama’s America ($6.2million), middle-aged romance Hope Springs ($6 million), and car chase comedy Hit and Run ($4.5 million).
