Safe House

They're smiling in the executive offices in Hollywood because everyone came out to see movies this weekend with the four major weekend releases all opening strong.

The romantic soaper The Vow edged out Denzel Washington's thriller Safe House, though the film over-performed, pulling in $10 million more than what experts predicted it would make this weekend. This makes it the second biggest b.o. opening for Washington after American Gangster, which pulled in $43.5 million on its opening weekend. People love Denzel when he's mean.
