Box office top 20: ‘Jigsaw’ is no. 1, Clooney film flops

NEW YORK (AP) — Though it fell short of expectations, the eighth “Saw” film, “Jigsaw,” became the latest horror release to top the North American box office with $16.6 million, according to final ticket sale figures Monday.

“Jigsaw” distributor Lionsgate also claimed the No. 2 spot with $10 million in the second week of release for “Tyler Perry’s Boo 2! A Madea Halloween.”

George Clooney’s “Suburbicon” flopped in its debut, coming in at ninth place with just $2.8 million despite opening on 2,046 screens.

In its first release since the Harvey Weinstein scandal began unfolding, the beleaguered Weinstein Co. feebly released a horror sequel of its own: “Amityville: The Awakening.” Playing in an unusual Saturday-only engagement on just 10 screens, it grossed $742.
