The latest installment of “The Chronicles of Narnia” went head-to-head with Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie’s latest pictures, “The Tourist,” over the weekend … and it was fantasy that won over moviegoers.

The third installment of the “Narnia” franchise, titled “The Voyage of the Dawn Treader,” pulled in $24.5 million to give it the top spot at the weekend box office.

However, it was a disappointing start for a series, who first two films — “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” and “Prince Caspian” — debuted with $65.6 million and $55 million in their opening weekends, respectively. But, Fox is expecting it to be a slow burn.

“Its best days are ahead of us,” a studio rep told EW.com

Despite the star presence of Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie, “The Tourist” — a remake of the 2005 French movie — opened to a modest $17 million to put it in second place.

In third place was Disney’s animated musical “Tangled”, earning another $14.6 million and bringing its domestic total to $115.6 million.

Falling from #2 to #4 this week was “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1,” earning $8.5 as it passes the $250 million mark.

Closing out the top 5 was Denzel Washington’s “Unstoppable”, which continued to remain within the top five movies in its fifth week in theaters. It brought in another $3.8 million over the weekend to bring its total to about $74 million.

Paramount’s boxing drama “The Fighter,” starring Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale, opened at #19 with $320,000 from four theaters.

That’s a wrap for this weekend. Next weekend, look out for the release of the sci-fi action “TRON: Legacy,” the comedy/drama “How Do You Know”, and the animated “Yogi Bear”.

This weekend’s top 10 is as follows:

1 – “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader,” $24.5 million.

2 – “The Tourist,” $17 million.

3 – “Tangled,” $14.5 million.

4 – “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1,” $8.5 million.

5 – “Unstoppable,” $3.7 million.

6 – “Black Swan,” $3.3 million.

7 – “Burlesque,” $3.2 million.

8 – “Love & Other Drugs,” $3 million.
