'Immortals' Tops Box Office with $32 Million

iStockphoto/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- Immortals showed plenty of life at the box office over the weekend.

The new action flick opened in first place, earning an estimated $32 million to top the Adam Sandler comedy Jack and Jill.  Sandler's film debuted in the runner-up spot, with $26 million.

Puss in Boots, which was the box office champ the previous two weekends, dropped to third place, raising $25.5 million.  The Clint Eastwood-directed drama J. Edgar, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, premiered in fifth place, with $11.5 million.

Immortals' run in the top spot will likely be short-lived, given that The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part 1 opens this Friday.

1. Immortals, $32 million.
2. Jack and Jill, $26 million.
3. Puss in Boots, $25.5 million.
