The Possession tops N America Movie

Industry estimates released Horror flick “The Possession” exorcised A-list action romp “The Expendables 2” from the top slot at the North American box office at the weekend.

The newly-released supernatural thriller, which stars Kyra Sedgwick and Jeffrey Dean Morgan as divorcing parents trying to rid their daughter of an evil spirit, raked in $17.7 million, pointed out movie tracker Exhibitor Relations.

In this regard, another new release, Depression-era Western “Lawless,” took second place in the rankings but it lagged in takings – generating $9.7 million on a slow, late summer weekend which will be followed by the Labor Day holiday, while “The Expendables 2” and “The Bourne Legacy” fell to third and fourth places, with $8.8 million and $7.2 million in ticket sales, respectively.
