Audiences did not have the "Need for Speed" this weekend.

DreamWorks' adaptation of the popular video game franchise starring Aaron Paul ("Breaking Bad") didn't finish first or even second this weekend.

The new film debuted under $20 million behind last week's new releases.

Instead, DreamWorks Animation's "Mr. Peabody & Sherman" (separate from DreamWorks) and Warner Bros. and Legendary's "300" ruled the weekend.

"Need for Speed" certainly won't be a bust. The estimated $66 million film is playing well overseas. So far, it's made $45.6 million overseas.

Overall, it wasn't a good week for new releases as Tyler Perry's latest movie, "The Single Moms Club"bombed over the weekend becoming the director's lowest opening in theaters.

The limited opening for Kickstarter-funded "Veronica Mars" starring Kristen Bell debuted to $2 million in nearly 300 theaters.

The big winner is Wes Anderson's latest movie, "The Grand Budapest Hotel" which made $3.6 million in just 66 theaters. Last weekend, the movie premiered in just four theaters to $2 million.

Here's a full look at the box-office weekend:

10. "Veronica Mars": $2 million
9. "Frozen": $2.1 million
8. "The Grand Budapest Hotel": $3.6 million
7. "Son of God": $5.4 million
6. "The Lego Movie": $7.7 million
5. "Tyler Perry's The Single Moms Club": $8.3 million
4. "Non-Stop": $10.6 million
3. "Need for Speed": $17.8 million
2. "300: Rise of An Empire": $19.1 million
1. "Mr. Peabody & Sherman": $21.2 million
