The star power of T.I., Chris Brown, Idris Elba, and more proved to be a powerful force at this weekend’s box office. While it barely missed the top spot, the action flick still managed to pull in strong figures.

Based on weekend estimates, the horror film The Last Exorcism grossed an estimated $21.3 million at 2,874 locations, enough to narrowly edge out Takers, which came in at No. 2 after earning $21 million at 2,206 theaters, according to studio estimates. At this rate, it should have no problem recouping its $32 million budget.

Takers, which also stars Paul Walker, Hayden Christensen, Matt Dillon, Jay Hernandez, and Zoe Saldana, focuses on a group of professional robbers who plan mind-blowing heists. When the recently-paroled member Ghost (played by T.I.) rounds up the crew for one last sting, they have to dodge a pair of detectives (Dillon and Hernandez) intent on putting a stop to their theft.

“Takers is suspenseful  modern male version of ‘Set it Off’ or a black ‘Ocean’s 11’ with a young hip hop cast…. “
