is back at the top of the U.S. box office after her new vigilante film The Brave One
claimed $14 million at the box office in its opening weekend.
The R-rated film, in which the actress plays a vengeful girlfriend on the hunt for her slain lover's killer, has displaced last week's number one, 3:10 to Yuma
, which slips a place to number two on the new countdown with a $9.2 million weekend take.
Billy Bob Thornton's
turn as a psychotic gym teacher in Mr. Woodcock
earned that film the number three spot with an opening weekend box office tally of $9.1 million.
The only other new entry in the new top 10 is Dragon Wars
at number four.
