The Ryan Reynolds-Samuel L. Jackson action comedy “The Hitman’s Bodyguard” debuted atop the North American box office over the weekend, knocking a spooky doll from the top spot, according to final figures released Monday.

That was good enough to push the horror film “Annabelle: Creation,” which earned $15.6 million, into second place.

The heist film “Logan Lucky” debuted in third place with $7.6 million, followed by director Christopher Nolan’s epic “Dunkirk” with $6.6 million and the animated “Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature” with $5.1 million.
