The Dennis Quaid thriller The Intruder dropped from second to fourth with $6.6 million and the Seth Rogen romanticcomedy Long Shot also fell two slots to round out the Top 5 with $6.1 million.

The weekend’s two other big releases fell outside the Top 5. The senior cheerleader comedy Poms debuted in sixth with $5.1 million. The JRR Tolkien bio-pic Tolkien came in ninth with $2.2 million.
