Paramount's latest G.I. Joe installment, also in its debut weekend, took in an estimated $13.4 million, recounting the origin story of its titular character Snake Eyes' involvement with the famed squad. 

In third place was Disney superhero flick Black Widow starring Scarlett Johansson, which earned an estimated $11.6 million. 

Last week's top earner, the Warner Bros. live action/animated Space Jam: A New Legacy, fell to fourth with $9.6 million. And in fifth was Universal's F9: The Fast Saga, at $4.6 million, bringing its five-week domestic total to more than $160 million.
