The House With A Clock In Its Walls easily topped the domestic box office with a better than expected $26.8 million in an otherwise quiet weekend at theaters.

Despite the over performance of Universal's new release The House with a Clock in Its Walls and the strong hold from Lionsgate's A Simple Favor, this weekend is still one of the worst of the year.

Internationally, Clock debuted in just 14 markets, bringing in an estimated $3.1 million led by Germany with an estimated $789k. After all, The House fetched the biggest opening of his career, which has mostly been sliding since the original Hostel film back in 2006. The cast also includes Cate Blanchett, Kyle MacLachlan, and Renée Elise Goldsberry. Just 63 percent of critics recommended "The House With a Clock In Its Walls", according to review aggregator RottenTomatoes.com.

Rounding out the rest of the weekend's top five are: "The Nun" in third place, with the latest instalment in the "Conjuring" franchise taking in $10.25 million in its third weekend, adding to a total domestic gross of more than $100 million; "The Predator" at #4, bringing in $8.7 million for a two-week domestic total of $40.4 million; and "Crazy Rich Asians" in fifth place, adding $6.5 million in its sixth week of release for a domestic tally of $159.4 million.

Audiences showed considerably less interest in Michael Moore's Donald Trump-themed documentary, "Fahrenheit 11/9", than his George W. Bush-themed one. On the bright side, 11/9 has received solid reviews and an A CinemaScore.

Dan Fogelman's "Life Itself" and the home invasion thriller "Assassination Nation" both barely registered in nationwide release.

"The Predator", last weekend's box office leader, fell to fourth place with sales of $8.7 million for theaters and its distributor, 21st Century Fox Inc.
