LOS ANGELES (AP) — “Tyler Perry’s Boo 2! A Madea Halloween” opened in first place this weekend with $21.2 million from North American theaters, beating out spectacle and star-driven newcomers like “Geostorm,” ”Only the Brave” and “The Snowman.”

The disaster epic “Geostorm” flopped with $13.7 million against a reported $120 million production budget in its first weekend in theaters. The long-delayed pic starring Gerard Butler did not connect with critics or audiences.

The horror pic “Happy Death Day” took third place with $9.4 million in its second weekend in theaters, while “Blade Runner 2049” fell to No. 4 in its third week with $7.4 million.

The fact-based firefighter drama “Only the Brave” rounded out the top five with $6 million out of the gates, while the crime thriller adaptation “The Snowman” launched in eighth place with only $3.4 million.
