(NEWSnet/AP) — It was a quiet weekend at North American movie theaters, dominated again  by Sony’s “The Garfield Movie" and “Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga” and some holdovers.

“Garfield” earned a chart-topping $14 million in ticket sales while “Furiosa” settled into third place in a close race with “IF,” according to studio estimates Sunday. Both “IF” and “Furiosa” are estimated to have earned $10.8 million, with “IF” getting the slight edge.

“Garfield” fell 42% in its second weekend in North America. “Furiosa” fell 59% from its first weekend, adding about $10.8 million from 3,864 locations in the U.S. and Canada. 

Several new releases opened on over 1,000 screens this weekend: Sony/Crunchyroll’s anime “Haikyu!! The Dumpster Battle”; IFC’s horror “In a Violent Nature”; Roadside Attractions’ Diane Keaton-Alfre Woodard-Kathy Bates comedy “Summer Camp”; And Bleecker Street’s father-son drama “Ezra.” None managed to crack the top five.
