Two movies competed neck-and-neck, much like a Super Bowl game, this weekend to win the number one spot at the box office.
Chronicle, the movie about a group of teenagers who gain superpowers only to realize that getting what you wish for can sometimes be a curse, won with $22 million at the box office, according to The Los Angeles Times. Chronicle marks the latest in a trend of found-footage movies to do well at the box office.
Although Chronicle made the grade this weekend, it had a close competitor, The Woman in Black. The horror film about a lawyer who travels to a small village in England only to find it haunted by a sadistic woman came in second with an estimated $21 million. Starring Daniel Radcliffe in his first role after the end of the Harry Potter series last summer, the film garnered great reviews.
Coming in third with still a strong following at $9.5 million is last week's number one film, The Grey. The thriller about a group of oil workers trapped in the Alaskan tundra stars Liam Neeson and Dermot Mulroney.
Coming in fourth with a disappointing $8.5 million was the romantic comedy Big Miracle, based on a true story about a journalist and a Green Peace worker who lead the fight in rescuing California grey whales trapped off the coast of Alaska. The film stars Drew Barrymore, John Krasinski and Kristen Bell.
Sliding down to fifth place this week is the Kate Beckinsale vampire thriller Underworld: Awakening with $5.6 million. This is the film's third week at the box office.
Staying strong with $5 million is the George Lucas-produced action film about the Tuskegee airmen of World War II, Red Tails, coming in seventh place this weekend.
Rounding out the top ten is George Clooney's Oscar-contending performance in The Descendants at eighth place with $4.6 million, Sam Worthington's action film Man on a Ledge at ninth place with $4.5 million and Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close coming in tenth with $3.9 million.
