‘Jack The Giant Slayer’ Tops Weekend Box Office With $28M
“Identity Thief” and another newcomer, “21 and Over,” finished in second and third place, respectively.
Jack may have won the weekend box office, but it was a relatively quiet one to begin with.
The 3D fantasy flick Jack the Giant Slayer grossed some $28 million, beating fellow box office newbies 21 and Over and The Last Exorcism: Part II, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Meanwhile Identity Thief continues to hold strong with moviegoers, taking in another $9.7 million to bring its to-date total to $107.4 million.
In third place was 21 and Over, a self-described film courtesy of Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, the brains behind The Hangover script.
A Good Day to Die Hard, which opened on top only two weeks ago, dropped like a fly to 9th place, taking in some $4.5 million.
Silver Linings Playbook, starring the newly minted Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence, is still holding strong with another $5.9 million. The David O. Russell picture has grossed more than $115 million since opening in November.
