Box Score: Safe House rose to the top spot



With newcomers underperforming at the weekend box office, three sophmore films held the top three spots.  After opening in second place last weekend, Safe House [SAFEH] secured first with an estimated $28.4 million over the President's Day long weekeend.  The thriller has already banked $82.6 million.

Last weekend's champ The Vow [THVOW] netted $26.6 million to take the second slot. The romance advanced its total to $88.5 million.

Journey 2: The Mysterious Island [MYSTR] finished third with $26.4 million, bringing its earnings to $59.5 million.

Expected to contend for the top spot, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance [GHST2] flamed out in fourth place at $25.7 million over the 4-day weekend.  The sequel attracted a crowd that was 61% men.

This Means War [TMWAR] fared even worse, managing just $20.4 million for fifth overall.  The romantic actioner skewed female at 65%.

The animated film The Secret World of Arrietty [ARITY] debuted at eighth with $8.1 million over the long weekend.
