LOS ANGELES (AP) -- "Ant-Man" has claimed first place at the box office for the second weekend in a row, narrowly besting new opener "Pixels." The Marvel and Disney superhero pic brought in $24.8 million over the weekend, bringing its domestic total to $106.1 million according to Rentrak estimates Sunday.

The Adam Sandler end of the world comedy "Pixels" earned an estimated $24 million in its debut weekend. It's a fairly weak start for the PG-13 rated film, which cost $88 million to produce.

Meanwhile, the R-rated boxing drama "Southpaw" surpassed expectations, earning $16.5 million out of the gates and beating out the YA adaptation "Paper Towns," which earned about $12.5 million - a far cry from the $48 million debut of "The Fault in Our Stars" last year.
