Jack the Giant Slayer took first place at the box office with a disappointing $7.7 million Friday opening. The 3-D adventure, which was originally slated for a June 2012 release, opened wide this weekend in 3,525 locations and averaged about $2,187 per screen. The $200 million epic directed by Bryan Singer (X-Men, X2) stars Ewan McGregor and Nicholas Hoult, and could be the first big flop of 2013. EW wrote about the hurdles Jack is expected to face in the coming weeks, especially after Disney’s Oz: The Great and Powerful opens March 8.
