Maximus plus Batman equals success. The Russell Crowe- and Christian Bale-fronted Western 3:10 to Yuma topped the weekend box office, taking in $14.1 million in its debut. Last week's chart-topper, Rob Zombie's Halloween ($10 million), slipped to the No. 2 spot.

Rounding out the top five were Superbad ($8 million), Balls of Fury ($5.7 mil) and The Bourne Ultimatum ($5.48 mil).

Clive Owen's Shoot 'Em Up opened at No. 6 with $5.45 mil, barely half of its studio's anticipated gross.
