Act of Valor and Tyler Perry's Good Deeds top Jennifer Aniston's Wanderlust at the weekend box office

Act of Valor

When I first learned that Relativity was going to be making a movie featuring and starring real Navy Seals, I thought for sure it would either flop at the box office or bypass it completely and go straight to Blu-ray.  But that shows what I know because the film finished in first place this past weekend, hauling in $24 million and easily beating TYLER PERRY’S GOOD DEEDS.  I’m not sure what to make of a box office topped by a Navy propaganda film and a Tyler Perry movie, but there you have it.  Meanwhile, JOURNEY 2: THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND, SAFE HOUSE and THE VOW continue to battle and both are still in the hunt for third, fourth and fifth place.  And WANDERLUST couldn’t muster a top five placement, finishing with a very disappointing $6 million.

Next week sees the release of PROJECT X, which I have to admit grows on me with the more previews and clips I see from the film.  I’m sure they’ll go overboard with it, but it looks like a fun movie.  We also get DR. SEUSS’S THE LORAX, which should fill a big void since there’s zero animated kids movies in theaters right now.  My money is on The Lorax, since kids movies always seem to do well.  Note: the numbers below will be updated as they become final.

1. Act of Valor $24.5m

2. Tyler Perry’s Good Deeds $16m

3. Journey 2: The Mysterious Island $13.1m

4. Safe House $11m

5. The Vow $9.7m

6. This Means War $10m

7. Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance $9.3m

8. Wanderlust $5.8m

9. The Secret World of Arrietty $5m

10. Gone $4.6m
