"Identity Thief" Reclaimed the Top Spot at the Box Office This Weekend

"Identity Thief" Reclaimed the Top Spot at the Box Office This Weekend

Though it was released at the beginning of this month, Melissa McCarthy- Jason Bateman-starring comedy Identity Thief managed to snag the top spot at the box office for a third time this weekend, the Hollywood Reporter is reporting. The film just beat the newly released action-thriller Snitch, earning $14.1 million to bring its domestic total to a solid $93.7 million.

The weekend itself was a rather slow one for the box office - though this is thought to be due in part to the fact that it's Oscars weekend, numbers have dropped quite a bit compared to last year when Act of Valor took in an impressive $24 million in theaters. 

Snitch took the second place spot with $13 million earned, Escape From Planet Earth came in at number three with $11 million, and the Nicholas Sparks romantic drama Safe Haven snagged the fourth spot with $10.6 million. The news was even worse for last week's box office winner, A Good Day to Die Hard - revenue for that film tumbled a whopping 60 percent, and the film only pulled in $10 million.

As always, final weekend numbers will be released tomorrow.
