LOS ANGELES (AP) — "The Wolverine" slashed monsters and minions to debut atop the weekend box office.

According to studio estimates Sunday, the Fox film featuring Hugh Jackman's sixth turn as the claw-wielding superhero opened with $55 million.

Last weekend's top movie, Warner Bros.' low-budget horror "The Conjuring," slipped to second place, adding another $22.1 million to its North American take.

"Despicable Me 2" was in third with $16 million. The Universal animated sequel has made more than $600 million worldwide since it came out four weeks ago. Another animated film, Fox's "Turbo," was in fourth place with $13.3 million. "Grown Ups 2" followed with $11.5 million.

Woody Allen's latest, "Blue Jasmine," opened in just six theaters but still brought in $612,767.
