Pixar's "Brave" hung onto third with $20.2 million, while Blake Lively's "Savages" debuted at four ($16.2 million) and Channing Tatum and Matthew McConaughey's stripper movie "Magic Mike" dropped to five ($15.6 million).

Concert movie and biopic "Katy Perry: Part of Me" failed to break into the top five, amassing just $7.2 million.
