The Top 5 Highest-Grossing Films in America Over the Weekend

Universal thriller The Girl on the Train was the #1 highest-grossing film this weekend with approximately $25m. The Emily Blunt-led adaptation of a best-selling book was also the only debut to make the Top 5 for that matter. The next biggest bow belonged to Fox Searchlight's The Birth of a Nation (a Sundance favorite), which appeared at #6 with $7.1m. The latter is a biographical drama that surrounds the story of Nat Turner, an enslaved man who led a slave rebellion in 1831.

1. The Girl on the Train (Universal) $25m 3,144/$7,844 avg. (debut)
2. Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children (Fox) $15m 3,144/$7,844 avg. (week 2)
3. Deepwater Horizon (Lionsgate) $12m 3,259/$3,605 avg. (week 2)
4. The Magnificent Seven (Sony) $9.2m 3,696/$2,476 (week 3)
5. Storks (Warner Bros.) $8.5m 3,608/$2,342 (week 3)

It's also worth noting that, this weekend, Disney's Finding Dory became the 27th film in recorded history to pass the $1b mark.
