‘Honest Thief’ takes top spot at box office

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Liam Neeson’s thriller Honest Thief stole the top spot at the box office in yet another quiet weekend of movie-going.

The Open Roads Films movie brought in USD3.7 million in North America the weekend of its United States (US) debut. The film, starring Neeson as a notorious bank robber who turns himself in but was double crossed by two FBI agents, opened in Canada last week.

The film also played well in markets including Miami, Chicago, San Diego and Atlanta, according to the studio.

Honest Thief overtook The War with Grandpa, which claimed number one last week. Despite coming in second, the comedy starring Robert De Niro earned USD2.5 million.

It has garnered USD7.3 million domestically within a 10-day timespan.
