With Hollywood's summer blockbuster season winding down, Universal Pictures is celebrating its first hit of the fall, with "The House With a Clock in Its Walls" taking the #1 spot at the domestic box office in its opening weekend.
Based on John Bellairs' 1973 children's book, House stars Owen Vaccaro as a boy who goes to live with his eccentric uncle (played by Jack Black) after the death of his parents and is plunged into a world of magic.
Internationally, Clock debuted in just 14 markets, bringing in an estimated $3.1 million led by Germany with an estimated $789k.
A number of holdovers filled out the top five as a trio of new releases came in way under expectations.

Critics' reviews were generally favorable, and moviegoers gave it a B+ CinemaScore. Lionsgate's thriller A Simple Favor will earn about $10.4 million in its second weekend, edging out Warner Bros'. horror movie The Nun, with about $10.3 million in its third frame. Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 11/9, a satirical film about President Trump, barely cracked the top ten with $3.1 million while festival-style flicks Life Itself ($2.1 million) and Assassination Nation ($1 million) did even worse. That's a long way from the $23.9 million managed by Moore's 2004 film Fahrenheit 9/11, which ultimately became the highest-grossing documentary ever with $119.2 million. How much of a draw the music video may have been isn't clear, but it's an interesting side note to a solid debut for the $42 million production.
The weekend itself was projected to be among the slowest of the year, with Box Office Mojo predicting the top films would struggle to produce $80 million in North America.
"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.
