20th Century Fox says Sunday that the James Cameron-produced film earned an estimated $27.8 million over the weekend against a reported $170 million budget.

In second place, "The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part," fell 38 percent with $21.2 million. Warner Bros. also has the No. 3 movie with the meta romantic comedy "Isn't It Romantic," which debuted to $14.2 million.

"What Men Want" landed in fourth with $10.9 million and the sequel to "Happy Death Day" opened in fifth with $9.8 million.
