No. 1 slot at box office provides nice ‘Vantage Point’


LOS ANGELES — The political thriller Vantage Point secured the top spot at the weekend box office, earning an estimated $24 million in ticket sales, according to studio estimates Sunday.

The previous No. 1 movie, 20th Century Fox’s Jumper, dropped to second with $12.7 million, raising its domestic total to $56.2 million in two weeks. Paramount’s family fantasy The Spiderwick Chronicles was a close third with $12.6 million. Disney’s dance saga Step Up 2 The Streets and Warner Bros.’ romantic comedy Fool’s Gold rounded out the top five.

Vantage Point, a Sony Pictures action-drama about a presidential assassination seen from the viewpoints of different characters, included a star-studded ensemble cast that featured Dennis Quaid and Matthew Fox as Secret Service agents.

“Audiences really love it when they get a summer-style popcorn movie at a time of the year when they don’t expect it,” said Paul Dergarabedian, president of box office tracker Media By Numbers.
