LOS ANGELES - "Sully" took flight in theaters this weekend and has landed with a solid $35.5 million to take the top spot at the box office, according to studio estimates Sunday.

The Clint Eastwood-directed film about the Miracle on the Hudson stars Tom Hanks as Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, who made an emergency landing of US Airways Flight 1549 in the Hudson River in 2009, minutes after taking off.

The Warner Bros. film cost a reported $60 million to produce and scored particularly well with audiences.

Taking second place with $15 million is the Screen Gems thriller "When the Bough Breaks" starring Morris Chestnut and Regina Hill.

Holdovers "Don't Breathe" and "Suicide Squad" took spots three and four, while the animated "The Wild Life" opened in fifth with a dim $3.4 million.
