After reining at the top of the box office for three weeks in a row, Suicide Squad was finally dethroned by newcomer Don’t Breathe.

According to Box Office Mojo, Fede Alvarez’s latest horror flick grossed an estimated $26.1 million. Suicide Squad dropped to second with an estimated $12.1 million, bringing its domestic total to $282.9 million. Kubo and the Two Strings actually managed to climb up to third place, making $7.9 million during its second weekend. Sausage Party continued to perform well, coming in fourth with $7.66 million.
