Even with the release of the much-anticipated Cloud Atlas, it seems that Ben Affleck's latest directorial effort, Argo, was able to find its way to the top of the weekend box office!
While the ambitious Tom Hanks flick landed third with $9.4 million, putting it behind the still-making-bank Hotel Transylvania with $9.5, it still fared better than Gerard Butler's surf flick Chasing Mavericks, which didn't even break the top ten with $2.2 million, and Chelsea Handler and Victoria Justice's new comedy Fun Size, which just made it into the 10 spot with $4.1 million!
Not surprisingly, in honor of Hallowee-kend, Silent Hill: Revelation 3D also managed to debut to some SPOOKY SCARES, making it to five with $8 million!
We'll see if it can hold its momentum next weekend once the holiday passes, though!
