LOS ANGELES — The Jodie Foster vigilante flick The Brave One scared up $14 million at the box office to become the weekend’s top film.

The Warner Bros. tale of revenge transcended gender, appealing to older women as well as men who might naturally be expected to enjoy the violent, R-rated film.

“Revenge movies often appeal to men, but the fact that Jodie Foster was in it brought in the women,” said Paul Dergarabedian, president of box-office tracker Media By Numbers. “That combination worked.”

While the film’s box office take was fairly modest, it is about right for this transition time of year between the summer blockbuster season and the fall Oscar push. The Warner Bros. film displaced last week’s box-office winner, “3:10 to Yuma,” which placed second with $9.2 million in ticket sales.
