Box Office: “Vantage” points to #1

The debut of the thriller VANTAGE POINT easily took first place at the weekend box office with $24-million, pushing last week’s top films, JUMPER and THE SPIDERWICK CHRONICLES down a notch a piece.

JUMPER landed at #2 with $12.6-million, yielding a two-week total fo $56.21-million.

SPIDERWICK wove its way to #3 in its sophmore session, earning $12.6-million, which added up to $43.58-million after two weeks of release.

No other sci-fi fantasy or horror films managed to make it into the Top Ten, and it was too early to see whether Oscar wins would boost the box office for JUNO (in eighth place), THERE WILL BE BLOOD (at #10), and NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN (in twelfth place).
