Black Mass [BMASS] opened in second with $23.4 million.  The crime drama skewed 61% males and 80%over the age of 25,  The word of mouth did not match the critical hype.

Last week's top film The Perfect Guy [TPGUY] dropped to fourth with $9.7 million.  The thriller tumbled 63% to bring its total to $41.4 million.
