LOS ANGELES (AP) – The Elisabeth Moss-led thriller â€œThe Invisible Manâ€ rode a wave of good reviews to a very visible spot atop the box office this weekend. Universal Pictures on Sunday estimated that the film from writer-director Leigh Whannell earned $29 million from North American theaters. Internationally, it picked up an additional $20.2 million.
â€œThe Invisible Manâ€ carried a relatively modest budget, costing under $10 million to produce.
â€œSonic the Hedgehogâ€ slid to second place in its third weekend in theaters with $16 million. â€œThe Call of the Wild,â€ with Harrison Ford, placed third in its second weekend with $13.2 million.
And in limited release, Benh Zeitlinâ€™s re-imagining of the Peter Pan myth, â€œWendy,â€ got off to a bumpy start with just $30,000 from four theaters.
