NEW YORK (AP) - The Hugh Jackman kidnapping drama "Prisoners" opened with a box office-leading $21.4 million, a good start to Hollywood's fall season.

The Warner Bros. thriller, starring Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal, is among the first fall films with Oscar aspirations to open in theaters. For a serious, adult-oriented drama that cost $30 million to make, it was a strong debut.

Last week's top film, "Insidious: Chapter 2," slid to second place for FilmDistrict. The horror film made $14.5 million in its second weekend, according to studio estimates Sunday. It has made $60.9 million in two weeks domestically.

The Chris Brown dance film "Battle of the Year" opened poorly for Sony Pictures' Screen Gems, taking in only $5 million.
