The Equalizer Opening Weekend


The Equalizer won the box office in its opening weekend.

Denzel Washington stars in the vigilante thriller, which earned $35 million to vanquish its competition.

Last week’s chart-topper, The Maze Runner, dropped to second place with $17.5 million.

That was enough to narrowly edge out the $17.3 million brought in by The Boxtrolls.

Ensemble comedy This Is Where I Leave You raked in $7 million for the #4 spot.

Dolphin Tale 2 came in fifth with $4.8 million.

Rounding out the Top 10 were: A Walk Among the Tombstones ($4.2 million), Guardians of the Galaxy ($3.8 million), Let’s Be Cops ($1.5 million), and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ($1.5 million)
