'Maze Runner' races past 'Tombstones' with $32.5 M

The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) The young-adult thriller "The Maze Runner" raced to the box-office top spot with $32.5 million, sprinting past Liam Neeson's "A Walk Among the Tombstones."

According to studio estimates Sunday, Fox' "Maze Runner" easily outpaced the $13.1 million debut of Neeson's latest action film for Universal Studios. "The Maze Runner," adapted from James Dashner's series of science-fiction YA novels, is being launched as a new franchise, with a sequel already in the works.

The Warner Bros. dramedy "This Is Where I Leave You" came in third with $11.9 million. The Shawn Levy-directed film failed to be a big draw despite an A-list ensemble cast including Tina Fey, Jason Bateman and Jane Fonda.
