Talent must runs in the Riche family! Southpaw, a boxing flick produced by Alan and Peter Riche—the husband and son respectively of beloved ex-General Hospital showrunner Wendy Riche—brought in $16.5 million at the box office this weekend.

The film, which stars Jake Gyllenhaal and was helmed by Antoine Fuqua, overperformed and managed to beat out Paper Towns to make it into the Top 5.  Kurt Sutter (Sons of Anarchy) wrote the script.
