'Chronicle' leads weekend box office

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA (AHN) -- Tickets sales have been chronicled for the current three-day weekend and results show that "Chronicle" took the No.1 spot.

The action film, about three teenagers who acquire superpowers, sold $22 million in tickets.

The $12 million flick, produced by Twentieth Century Fox, was written by Max Landis, son of writer and director John Landis whose work includes numerous cult classics including "National Lampoon's Animal House" and "Coming to America." "Chronicle" drew 61 percent of its weekend audience from the under-25 age group.

"Women in Black," a supernatural thriller starring Daniel Radcliffe, was a close second with $21 million.

Last week's number one movie, "The Grey," featuring Liam Neeson, slipped to No. 3, bringing in $9.5 million.

Taking the number four slot was "Big Miracle," starring Drew Barrymore and Jon Krasinski. The film, about a reporter whose ex-girlfriend helps him attempt to save a family of whales in the Arctic Circle, grossed $8.5 million in its opening weekend.

"Underworld: Awakening" rounded out the top five, bringing in $5.6 million over the weekend. The vampire thriller, starring Kate Beckinsale, has a cumulative total of $54.4 million.
