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.

The star-studded flick, starring Nicholas Hoult as the title character, also employs the talents of Stanley Tucci, Bill Nighy and Ewan McGregor.

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.
