Weekend B.O. (Feb. 17-20 - Safe House Stays Strong)

Safe House held off all comers to get the No. 1 slot this weekend moving up from the second place last weekend. Admittedly that was a surprise to me considering the ending of the film, which did not go well with the audience I saw it with (I didn't like it either) and I thought it would hurt the long lasting b.o. potential of the film.
