Safe House Overthrows The Vow

Safe House

Well, it looks like the guys had to restore their movie-going masculinity this weekend for taking their women to see The Vow before Valentine's Day: action thriller Safe House has taken the number one spot with $23.8 million from the romantic drama, which came close with $23.1 million.

Nicolas Cage's return as the dark, motorcycle-loving superhero in Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance took the number three spot in its debut with $22.1 million. Dropping down one more spot from last week, Journey 2: The Mysterious Island took #4 with $19.9 million, and the action-packed romantic comedy This Means War rounded out the top 5 in its first week with $17.4 million.
