‘Texas Chainsaw 3-D’ powers its way to top of box office

It took Leatherface and his chainsaw to chase tiny hobbit Bilbo Baggins out of the top spot at the box office.

Lionsgate’s horror sequel ‘‘Texas Chainsaw 3-D’’ debuted at No. 1 with $23 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. The movie picks up where 1974’s ‘‘The Texas Chainsaw Massacre’’ left off, with masked killer Leatherface on the loose again.
