Box office top 20: Burton and 'Peculiar Children' are No. 1

October 04, 2016 - 5:06 AM

LOS ANGELES - In a matchup of $100 million-plus films, Tim Burton's "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children" topped Peter Berg's "Deepwater Horizon."

Both were high-priced original films that earned warm reviews. But "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children" found more interest with North American moviegoers, earning $28.9 million, according to final studio figures Monday. The film, starring Eva Green and Asa Butterfield, is adapted from Ransom Rigg's popular young-adult novel.

"Deepwater Horizon," about the 2010 oil rig explosion that resulted in one of the worst environmental disasters, had more difficulty in its debut. The Lionsgate release took in $20.2 million.
