Box office: 'John Carter,' Eddie Murphy beat by 'The Lorax'
The animated adaptation of Dr. Seuss' "The Lorax," starring Zac Efron and Taylor Swift, managed to reign supreme at the box office once again, raking in $39.1 million dollars to come in first place on March 11, according to BoxOfficeMojo. The big-budget Mars epic "John Carter" only managed to make $30.6 million, a disappointment considering how much it cost to make.
Teen party flick "Project X" continued to surprise, earning $11.5 million and taking third place, while the Elizabeth Olsen-starring horror film "Silent House" pulled in slightly more than "Act of Valor" at around $7 million each.
"A Thousand Words" didn't even crack the top 5, but the comedy, which was actually made in 2008, pulled in $6.3 million to come in sixth place. The thriller "Safe House" wasn't too far behind with $5 million. "The Vow" earned $4 million to "This Mean's War's" $3.75, and "Journey 2" rounded out the top 10 with $3.7.
