Tyler Perry’s Boo! A Madea Halloween took the top spot at the U.S. box office.
Inferno, the third entry in Ron Howard’s Da Vinci Code film series, bombed at the domestic box office, earning an estimated $15 million during its opening weekend.
The film, which stars Tom Hanks and Felicity Jones, was expected to claim the top spot at the box office with somewhere between $20 million to $30 million during its opening weekend, THR reports. However, it was eclipsed by Tyler Perry’s Boo! A Madea Halloween, which placed first with a second-weekend haul of $16.7 million.
Fortunately for Sony, Inferno fared much better overseas, having now earned approximately $132.9 million since its international debut earlier this month. It topped the charts during its opening weekend in China with $13.3 million.

Meanwhile, Ouija: Origin of Evil placed fifth during its second weekend in theaters with $7.1 million, coming in just behind Jack Reacher: Never Go Back and The Accountant, which placed third and fourth with $9.6 million and $8.5 million, respectively.
