“The Musketeer,” which added a samurai swing or two to Alexandre Dumas’s classic tale of hero D’Artagnan’s swordplay, topped the weekend box office chart, besting the new romantic comedy “Two Can Play That Game” and Mark Wahlberg and Jennifer Aniston in “Rock Star.” “Star,” in fact, hit a sour note with critics and audiences, performing only modestly, which does not bode well for its longevity. With audiences shrinking on the first weekend following the Labor Day holiday, last weekend’s No. 1 movie, the horror flick “Jeepers Creepers,” dropped to the fourth spot on the chart. But in just two weeks, “Jeepers” has made $24.3 million, following a record debut for a Labor Day weekend opening. Jeepers, indeed. This weekend’s Top 10, according to studio estimates:

1. “The Musketeer,” $10.7 million
2. “Two Can Play That Game,” $8.3 million
3. “Rock Star,” $6.18 million
4. “Jeepers Creepers,” $6.17 million
5. “The Others,” $6.1 million
6. “Rush Hour 2,” $5.9 million
7. “American Pie 2,” $4.7 million
8. “Rat Race,” $4.4 million
9. “The Princess Diaries,” $3.4 million
10. “O,” $2.7 million
