Just like last weekend, another close battle was waged at the box office, and this time Denzel Washington has come out on top. The Oscar winner’s latest foray into the action genre, Safe House should gross an estimated $24 million over the three days – giving it $78 million total. That’s a great number for the film, which will cross the $100 million mark and make it one of Washington’s highest grossing efforts. It’s even better news for co-star Ryan Reynolds, who needed to anchor a hit following the one-two punch combo that was Green Lantern and The Change-Up.
Hit romantic drama The Vow is also continuing to do well, grossing another $23.6 million and upping its cume to $85.5 million, a great gross for the $30 million film.
