Will Smith's 'Focus' tops box office with $19.1 million

The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) Will Smith's caper "Focus" dethroned "Fifty Shades of Grey" at the box office, but the film's modest $19.1 million opening still left questions about the drawing power of the once unstoppable star.

According to studio estimates Sunday, Warner Bros.' "Focus" easily topped all competitors on a weekend with little competition at the multiplexes. In second place was the Colin Firth spy thriller "Kingsman: The Secret Service," which made $11.8 million in its third week of release.

After two weeks atop the box office, "Fifty Shades of Grey" slid to fourth with an estimated $10.9 million for Universal Pictures.

The weekend's only other new wide release, Relativity's horror film "The Lazarus Effect," opened in fifth place with $10.6 million.
