The Equalizer Takes Out the Box Office Competition

IGN:
The Equalizer, Sony's big screen adaptation of the 1980s TV series, debuted atop the domestic box office this weekend with an estimated $35 million. That makes it the third biggest domestic opening for star Denzel Washington behind American Gangster ($43.6 million) and Safe House ($40.2 million).

The weekend's other major new release was LAIKA's animated movie The Boxtrolls, which opened in third place with an estimated $17.3 million. That makes it LAIKA's biggest domestic bow yet, ahead of Coraline's $16.8 million debut.
