by BoxOffice Staff

Warner Bros. reports that Focus once again claimed first place on Wednesday with $1.29 million, bringing its six-day domestic total to $23.35 million. The Will Smith/Margot Robbie con artist pic is running about 4.5 percent behind the pace of 2011's Limitless.

Fox's Kingsman: The Secret Service continued to display its holding power with another $0.89 million in second place yesterday, off just 33 percent from the same day last week. The graphic novel adaptation has earned an excellent $88.8 million domestically so far, putting it 3.5 percent ahead of the pace of 2003's Daredevil. Kingsman is also quickly catching up to the pace of 2007's Ghost Rider as the former title now trails that flick by just 8 percent at the same point.

Fifty Shades of Grey held onto third with $0.81 million added to its haul on Wednesday, down 54 percent from last week. The adaptation's domestic tally stands at $150.05 million through 20 days of release, 6 percent ahead of where Twilight stood. Grey also eclipsed the $500 million global box office mark yesterday.

In fourth place, The Lazarus Effect posted $0.45 million on Wednesday. With $11.84 million in the bank through six days of release, the horror flick is pacing 21 percent behind last year's Oculus.

Filling out the top five, McFarland, USA added $0.43 million for a healthy 34 percent week-to-week drop. The Kevin Costner sports drama has tallied $23.6 million domestically thus far.
