Your weekend box office:

1. Jack the Giant Slayer - $28 million, giving the $200 million film a weaker opening than even John Carter, last year's gold standard of "man, did that do shitty."

2. Identity Thief - $9.7 million. The film is now at over $100 million domestic. You'd really hope Melissa McCarthy would get to stop making Mike & Molly episodes sometime soon.

4. The Last Exorcism, Part II - $8 million--less than half the opening of the last Last Exorcism.

5. Snitch - $7.7 million. Needed more askew eyebrow arching, The Rock.
