NEW YORK — A trio of wide-releases sputtered while the gothic family fantasy “The House With a Clock in Its Walls,” starring Jack Black and Cate Blanchett, ticked its way to a weekend-best $26.6 million in ticket sales, according to final box-office figures Monday.

The Universal Pictures release, produced by Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment, exceeded industry expectations on a weekend that was otherwise littered with disappointments.

Amazon Studio’s “Life Itself,” from “This Is Us” creator Dan Fogelman, bombed with a mere $2.1 million in 2,609 theaters. Sam Levinson’s “Assassination Nation,” which Neon made the top purchase at January’s Sundance Film Festival, debuted with only $1.1 million. And Michael Moore’s Donald Trump documentary “Fahrenheit 11/9,” from the newly launched Briarcliff Entertainment, opened with $3 million, or about half what was expected.

The top 20 movies at U.S. and Canadian theaters Friday through Sunday, followed by distribution studio, gross, number of theater locations, average receipts per location, total gross and number of weeks in release, as compiled Monday by comScore:
