The film, based on the blockbuster YA novel, landed in first place with a stunning $32.5 million. That was way more than double the second place film, Liam Neeson’s A Walk Among the Tombstones, with its $13.1 million debut.

The ensemble dramedy This Is Where I Leave You debuted in third place with $11.8 million and should easily recoup the $20 million it cost to make. And it should also be noted that the film scored nicely with its $4,135 per location in ticket sales.

No Good Deed, last week’s number one movie, landed in fourth place, adding another $10.2 million to its total box office of $40.1 million.

Closing out the top five was Dolphin Tale 2 as the true story sequel made $9 million for a two-week total gross of $27 million.
