Suddenly Susan does it again! The Equalizer was number one at the box office. The Denzel action flick had a strong $35 million opening.
The Maze Runner slipped into the number two spot with an impressive $17.5 million second week take.
The Boxtrolls opened at number three with $17.2 million. Looks like these animated creatures should have stayed hidden.
This is Where I Leave You dropped a spot to number four with $7 million and a domestic total of $22 million.
Dolphin Tale 2 waded at number five, holding from last week, with another $4.8 million.
No Good Deed came in at number five with $4.6 million and a domestic total of $46 million.
A Walk Among the Tombstones plummeted to number seven with just $4.2 million and a domestic total of $20.8 million. With a $28 million budget, Liam should stick to the Taken franchise.
Guardians of the Galaxy took the number eight spot with $3.7 million. After nine weeks in release and a worldwide total of $644 million so far, this is the epitome of a blockbuster.
Let’s Be Cops took the number nine spot after seven weeks in release with $1.5 million. Who knew this raunchy comedy had box office legs?
Rounding out the top ten were the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, with $1.4 million and a worldwide total of $342 million. Nice, but its no Guardians.

Next week Ben Affleck takes on the blood thirsty doll Annabelle. This is a tough call. Reviews and buzz on Gone Girl is strong, but a creepy horror movie weeks before Halloween is a good bet. I’ll put my money on Annabelle for the win.
Tune in to see if I’m right. Until then, happy movie going!
