Jack the Giant Slayer climbs the box office

In its first week out, Jack the Giant Slayer, starring Nicholas Hoult, climbed to achieve the No. 1 spot at the box office, earning $28 million and 4.4 stars from Tribute.ca users. The action movie knocked the comedy flick Identity Thief out of the top spot to the No. 2 position, as it brought in $9.71 million and 3.4 stars out of a possible five. The third and fourth places in the box office belong to two new releases, a comedy and a horror film. 21 & Over grabbed third place, bringing in $9 million and a 4.2 star rating. The Last Exorcism Part II came in close behind with $8.03 million and an astounding 5 stars from Tribute readers. Rounding out the top five, Snitch dropped three spots in its second week out, but earned $7.7 million and 3.7 stars. No. 6-10 belong to Escape from Planet Earth, Safe Haven, Silver Linings Playbook (in its 16th week at the box office), A Good Day to Die Hard and Dark Skies.
