Ben Affleck's The Town, featuring Affleck, Jeremy Renner, Rebecca Hall, Jon Hamm, and Blake Lively, topped the North American box office for the sixth day in a row, taking in $2.26 million on Wednesday, Sept. 22, according to Box Office Mojo. Total to date: $30.98m.

At no. 2, the Emma Stone vehicle Easy A earned $1.01 million, falling perilously close to the $1m-per-day mark. Next was the Milla Jovovich-Wentworth Miller actioner Resident Evil: Afterlife with $730k.

At no. 4, the M. Night Shyamalan presentation Devil earned $660k, followed by the animated Alpha and Omega with $319k.

The Anton Corbijn-George Clooney thriller/drama The American collected $229k.

Next in line were the Hayden Christensen-Chris Brown-Paul Walker thriller Takers with $213k at no. 7, and Julia Roberts-Javier Bardem-James Franco's romantic drama Eat Pray Love with $184k at no. 8.

Rounding out the top twelve were Ethan Maniquis-Robert Rodriguez's Machete with $173k, Christopher Nolan-Leonardo DiCaprio's Inception with $166k, Will Ferrell-Mark Wahlberg's The Other Guys with $140k, Drew Barrymore-Justin Long's Going the Distance with $132k.

Among the top twelve movies, The Town had the highest per-theater average, $793. Going the Distance had the lowest, $66.

The top ten movies at the North American box office were down 15.5 percent on Wednesday. Not surprisingly, every single movie on the top twelve chart posted attendance decreases.

Inception had the lowest Tuesday-to-Wednesday drop-off rate, -6.7 percent. Devil had the highest, -22.9 percent.
