Tim Burton’s latest fantastical oddity, “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children,” debuted with $28.5 million, leading North America ticket sales, according to studio estimates Sunday.

Peter Berg’s well-reviewed disaster movie “Deepwater Horizon,” about the 2010 oil rig explosion, however, failed to tap North American moviegoers, opening with an estimated $20.6 million. And Disney’s uplifting chess prodigy tale “Queen of Katwe,” starring David Oyelowo and Lupita Nyong’o, brought in a dismal $2.6 million in its national expansion.
