Safe House sneaks past The Vow as box office champion

The thriller Safe House starring Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds, squeaked past last week’s top movie, The Vow, at the weekend box office, taking in an estimated $24 million (all figures U.S.) in its second weekend, earning a solid 4 out of 5 stars from Tribute viewers. The romantic drama The Vow, starring Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams, followed closely behind with an additional $23.6 million for a two-week total of over $85 million. The new sequel Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance debuted with lower-than-expected earnings of $22 million and 3 stars from Tribute viewers. The 3D children’s adventure Journey 2: The Mysterious Island dropped a place to fourth, taking in $20.1 million. Rounding out the top five was the new Reese Witherspoon romantic comedy This Means War, earning a disappointing $17.6 million but 4 stars from Tribute viewers.

    I don’t understand how Safe House is number 1. It was such a waste of time…good acting by the 2 guys but the storyline was so deflated. I hate chick flicks but I wouldve rather seen The Vow or even This Means War!

    Joey what’s wrong with you? Safe House was SO good! Denzel Washington is THE MAN! Although a Rachel McAdams movie is always a win with me
