Jack the Giant Slayer Wins Box Office, Fails to Slay

by at . Comments

Jack may have slayed a giant, and even come out on top of this weekend's box office, but he still anchored the first dud of 2013.

Indeed, Jack the Giant Slayer earned $28 million on Friday and Saturday, but the big budget fantasy adventure was made for over $150 million and will not come anywhere close to recouping that investment.

It was an especially weak weekend overall for Hollywood, as Ed Harris and David Duchovny anchored an historically terrible Phantom.

That drama was made for $18 million and opened to $465,000 on 1,100 screens. Total.

Here's a look at the top five:

  1. Jack the Giant Slayer - $28 million
  2. Identity Thief - $9.7 million
  3. 21 and Over - $9 million
  4. The Last Exorcism Part II - $8 million
  5. Snitch - $7.7 million
