‘Town’ Is Talk Of Box Office, Opening With $23.8M

LOS ANGELES (AP) — “The Town” is the talk of the box office, opening with $23.8 million to take the No. 1 spot.

The Warner Bros. drama about bank robbers in an insular section of Boston earned rave reviews. This is the second movie directed by Ben Affleck, who stars star alongside Jeremy Renner, Rebecca Hall and Jon Hamm.

It was a crowded field this weekend, with three other movies opening nationwide and several others in limited release. The high-school comedy “Easy A” from Columbia Pictures came in second place with $18.2 million, and the Universal Pictures thriller “Devil” came in third with $12.6 million.
