Jack the Giant Slayer Kills the Weak Competition

Jack and the Giant Slayer easily took the top of the box office this weekend ($28 million).  However, that may not be a big enough start to recoup it's reported $190 million budget.  Many were predicting it to be this year's John Carter or Battleship... and it might just be.

It also doesn't help that Oz comes out next weekend, which will more that likely, take most of Jack's audience.

Identity Thief is still holding strong($9.7 million) with only a 30% drop from last weekend, to come in second.  The poorly reviewed comedy has strong legs and is the first movie of 2013 to pass the $100 million mark domestically.

A Good Day to Die Hard is officially a disappointment domestically, as it continues to fall dramatically at the box office.  It will probably end up short of the original Die Hard's $83 million, which came out back in 1988. Luckily, it has a strong overseas following, where it has already made over $161.5 million.
