"Jack the Giant Slayer" won the box office crown this weekend but according to Film.com it was a Pyrrhic victory at best, as the film's total of $28 million still puts it on pace to be an epic flop despite debuting at number one.
And "Jack the Giant Slayer" wasn't the only giant disappointment at the box office, as fellow new releases "21 and Over" and "The Last Exorcism Part II" both tanked as well, bringing in just $9 million and $8 million respectively.
Pretty much the only bright spot of the weekend was Melissa McCarthy's "Identity Thief," which topped the $100 million mark in its fourth week of release. Overall, though, Hollywood is just holding its breath for next weekend's release of "Oz the Great and Powerful."
