'Act Of Valor' Tops US Weekend B-O

FEB 27, 2012 - Act of Valor trounced a handful of movies with major names attached over the weekend. The movie wound up in first place with US$24.7 million from 3,039 locations, which is just a little bit less than Tyler Perry's Good Deeds, Wanderlust and Gone made combined. The Top 12 earned an estimated US$115.8 million this weekend, which is up a whopping 20 percent from the same frame last year.

Safe House
fell 52 percent to an estimated $11.4 million in its third weekend. That brings its total to US$98.1 million, which trails Denzel Washington's American Gangster by just US$2.5 million. Barring some kind of weird twist, Safe House is poised to end up being Denzel's second-highest-grossing movie ever ahead of Remember the Titans $115.7 million.

This Means War fell 51 percent to an estimated US$8.1 million bringing its total to US$33.6 million. The Vow crashed 57 percent to an estimated US$10 million. That's nothing to cry about, though, since it became the first Sony/Screen Gems movie to ever pass US$100 million on Saturday. It's also the first 2012 movie to reach that mark, and through 17 days in cinemas the Channing Tatum-Rachel McAdams romance has made a massive US$103 million.
