The Maze Runner was indeed number one, so color me a winner. The teen action novel turned motion picture took in $32.5 million during its opening weekend.
A Walk Among the Tombstones strolled into number two, opening with $13.1 million. Its no Taken, but Liam Neeson should feel proud.
This is Where I Leave You opened at number three with $11.8 million. This small budget charmer and its amazing ensemble cast could go the distance if word of mouth is good.
No Good Deed plummeted to number four with $10.2 million after such a strong opening weekend. Its modest budget of $13 million though makes this thriller a hit.
Dolphin Tale 2 floated down to number five with just $9 million. Its high budget of $36 million means this franchise will be put down for good.
Guardians of the Galaxy zoomed to number six with $5.1 million. After eight weeks in release and a domestic total of $313.6 million, this is one stellar hit.
Let’s Be Cops is still pulling rank at number seven with $2.6 million and a worldwide total of $101 million.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles came out of their shells at number eight with $2.6 million added to their $333 million worldwide total.
The Drop dropped to number nine with $2 million for a small domestic total of just $7.9 million.
Rounding out the top ten was If I Stay which took in another $1.8 million, bringing its domestic run to a healthy $47.6 million.
