NEW YORK (AP) - The stylized action romp "Bullet Train," starring Brad Pitt, arrived with a $30.1 million opening weekend, according to studio estimates Sunday, as the last big movie of Hollywood's summer recovery landed in theaters.

The "Bullet Train" debut for Sony Pictures was solid but unspectacular for a movie that cost $90 million to make and was propelled by Pitt's substantial star power. Even if it holds well in coming weeks, movie theaters have no major studio releases on the horizon for the rest of August, and few sure things to look forward to in early fall.

While late summer is always a quiet period in theaters, it will be especially so this year - and likely to sap some of the momentum stirred by "Top Gun: Maverick," "Jurassic World: Dominion," "Minions: The Rise of Gru" and others.
