Making a surprise move from runner-up to the pole position, "Argo" finds itself atop the pack at the box office to kick off the dismal weekend of October 26-28, 2012 .

The Ben Affleck starring/directed thriller - which is about Tony Mendez's account of the rescue of six U.S. diplomats during the 1979 Iran hostage crisis - garnered estimated sales of $3.9 million on Friday with a $13.2 million projected take during its third weekend of release.
