"Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials" sprinted away with the box office lead with a $30.3 million debut that came in below its 2014 original but was still enough to surpass Johnny Depp's "Black Mass."

Warner Bros.' Whitey Bulger drama opened with $22.6 million. A solid return for an R-rated adult drama, the debut brought relief to a bad box-office run for Depp following failures like "Mortdecai," ''Transcendence" and "The Lone Ranger."

Opening in 545 IMAX and large-format screens, Universal's mountaineering thriller "Everest" took in $7.2 million ahead of its wider expansion.
