With an estimated $36 million, the sci-fi war movie starring Aaron Eckhart forces Johnny Depp's 'Rango' to leave its first position.
"Battle: Los Angeles" has conquered North American Box Office in its opening week by debuting at the penthouse of the weekly rundown. The Aaron Eckhart-starring movie, costing $70 million in production, enters the chart with an estimated $36 million.
Giving up the first spot to "Battle: Los Angeles" is Johnny Depp-voiced animated movie "Rango". This Paramount Pictures flick slips from the No. 1 position to the runner-up place by dropping a modest 40% in ticket sales with an addition of $23.1 million.

In between the third and fifth places, there is "The Adjustment Bureau". After opening at No. 2 last weekend with a solid $21.1 million, The Matt Damon's science fiction thriller now has dropped 46 percent in ticket sales by adding another $11.5 million.
