Three new movies opened this weekend, but Jack the Giant Slayer was the only one to cross the $10 million mark. Produced on an estimated budget of $195 million, Jack the Giant Slayer earned $28 million this weekend and took first place. Identity Thief continues to impress, taking second place and crossing the $100 million mark.

Because of its small production budget, The Last Exorcism Part II’s opening take wasn’t a failure, but it certainly did not come anywhere close to the first movie’s $20 million opening weekend. Dark Skies managed to stay in the top 10 this weekend, earning a total of $13.4 million since opening.

Next week sees the release of Oz The Great and Powerful and Dead Man Down, along with a limited theatrical release for The ABCs of Death. Sam Raimi’s Oz should easily take the top spot, and early buzz makes it seem like Raimi has another hit on his hands. »
