As summer comes to a close and superheroes take a break from the box office, we get to let our imaginations wander away from comic books to something a bit more frightening.
Taking the No. 1 spot this week is Tim Burton's odd X-men, otherwise known as "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children." The dark fantasy film brought in an estimated $28.5 million domestically in its debut.
It's a lukewarm start for a film that cost $110 million to produce, but Burton has a habit of turning a profit no matter how expensive or terrible the source material.
