Box Office: The Roommate Moves In

January may be a tough month at the box office, but Leighton Meester and Minka Kelly's thriller The Roommate managed to make its mark. It earned $15.6 million, which landed it in first place in the least-attended Super Bowl weekend in 15 years.

In second place was Sanctum, the James Cameron-produced cave thriller and fellow new release, which made $9.2 million. Following it in third was Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher's romantic comedy No Strings Attached with $8.4 million, and Oscar hopeful The King's Speech was right on its heels with $8.3 million. Rounding out the top five was The Green Hornet, which came in with $6.1 million.
