LOS ANGELES (AP) — The gods of ancient Greece have extended their rule to the weekend box office with a No. 1 debut for the action tale “Immortals.”

The story of Greek hero Theseus took in $32 million domestically, while studio estimates Sunday put Adam Sandler’s new comedy “Jack and Jill” at No. 2 with a $26 million opening.

The new movies bumped the animated hit “Puss in Boots” to the No. 3 spot after two weekends at the top. “Puss in Boots” earned $25.5 million, raising its domestic total to $108.8 million.

Director Clint Eastwood’s “J. Edgar,” a film biography starring Leonardo DiCaprio as longtime FBI boss J. Edgar Hoover, played in narrower release and opened at No. 5 with $11.5 million.
