Box office reports

It used to be that if a summer flick starred Will Smith, it was a guaranteed moneymaker: First place at the box office, maybe a franchise in the making.

But the 44-year-old actor's latest film opened with a thud.

After Earth, a futuristic action-adventure co-starring Smith's 14-year-old son, Jaden, debuted in third place, collecting a disappointing $27.5 million over the weekend.

The film was deemed "rotten" by review aggregator RottenTomatoes.com, with only 12 percent of critics offering praise.

"Quite simply, this is one of the worst films of 2013," Richard Roeper wrote in the Chicago Sun-Times.

The top five movies at U.S. and Canadian theaters Friday through Sunday, as compiled Monday by Hollywood.com are:
