Spokeswoman: Kardashian West held up at gunpoint

LOS ANGELES

A spokeswoman for Kim Kardashian West says she was held up at gunpoint inside her Paris hotel room Sunday night by two armed masked men dressed as police officers.

The representative said the reality TV star is “badly shaken but physically unharmed.”

She offered no other details. Paris police declined to comment.

Kanye West was performing at the Meadows Music and Arts Festival in New York at the time. He abruptly ended his set Sunday night after telling his fans had a family emergency.

‘Miss Peregrine’ bests ‘Deepwater Horizon’

NEW YORK

In a box-office rarity, three acclaimed, original films from studios opened in theaters over the weekend.

Only one caught on.

Tim Burton’s latest fantastical oddity, “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children,” debuted with $28.5 million, leading North American 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.

Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to comScore. Where available, the latest international numbers for Friday through Sunday also are included. Final domestic figures will be released today.

1. “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children,” $28.5 million ($36.5 million international).

2. “Deepwater Horizon,” $20.6 million ($12.4 million international).
