Tim Burton’s latest film Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children didn’t have much trouble topping the box office over the weekend, although it wasn’t quite a smash hit either. The movie earned $28.5 million, which is slightly less than what Dark Shadows made back in 2012 and that movie was considered a box office bomb. Miss Peregrine cost $40 million less, however, and should ultimately do just fine as it rolls out internationally. In second place, Deepwater Horizon took in $20.6 million, followed by The Magnificent Seven, which dropped to third with $15 million. Storks and Sully rounded out the top 5. Meanwhile, Masterminds had a rough go of it as the heist comedy opened in sixth place, managing to pilfer just $6.6 million.
