The suspense thriller “The Purge” topped the weekend box office with a shocking $36.4 million, according to studio estimates.

The Google-promoting comedy “The Internship” opened with $18.1 million, a decent debut for Fox’s Owen Wilson, Vince Vaughn comedy.
But that was good enough only for fourth place, as Universal’s “Fast & Furious 6” earned $19.8 million in its third week of release. And the magician movie “Now You See Me” also held strong in its second week, earning $19.5 million for Lionsgate.
