Box Office Breakdown: ‘Jack’ Slays ‘Identity Thief’

Jack the Giant Slayer

Nicholas Hoult is not faring too well as a box office star.

Though Jack and the Giant Slayer took number one at the box office, the Bryan Singer-directed thriller only raked in $27.2 million - a sad fraction of its $195 million budget. Last week's number one film, Identity Thief, managed to only dip down to number two with $9.7 million while 21 and Over debuted at number three with $8.7 million. Summit's Snitch dropped two spots to number four with $7.8 million while horror film The Last Exorcism Part II debuted at number 5 with $7.7 million.
