Argo, inspired is by the real-life rescue of six U.S. embassy workers during the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis, finally found its way to the top of the box office after three weeks with a revenue of $12.4-million this weekend.



The Warner Bros. thriller, which stars Ben Affleck, had been in the second place since the past two weeks and has now made about $60.8 million in total.



Debuting at number three was the sprawling, star-studded Cloud Atlas, which made a disappointing $9.4 million, the New York Post reported.



It was a soft weekend all around, though, with several newcomers opening poorly, Hollywood.com box-office analyst Paul Dergarabedian pointed out.



The horror sequel Silent Hill: Revelation 3-D from Open Road Films debuted at number five with $8 million and the Paramount Halloween comedy Fun Size arrived in 10th place with just over $4 million.







Chasing Mavericks, an inspirational surfing drama from Fox 2000, came in at number 13 with $2.2 million.



The top 10 movies at the weekend box office were:



Argo - $12.4 million

Hotel Transylvania - $9.5 million

Cloud Atlas - $9.4 million

Paranormal Activity 4 - $8.7 million

Silent Hill: Revelation 3-D - $8 million

Taken 2 - $8 million

Here Comes the Boom - $5.5 million

Sinister - $5.07 million

Alex Cross - $5.05 million

Fun Size - $4.1 million
