Weekend B.O.

Friday's box office results offer few surprises.

Vantage Point, despite some rancid reviews, leaps to the top of a weak field ...

Jumper slides to second place, while Step Up 2 the Streets and Spiderwick Chronicles race neck-and-neck for #3 and #4 ... and animation titles are in scant supply.

Late Addendum: The weekend totals saw Vantage Point atop the proverbial heap with $24 million. Not bad for a film that got few critical hossanahs, but not a barn burner.

In animation land, Alvin at #21 has collected $213 million, Persepolis (#27) gets a bump of 7.6% nd now totals $3.5 million, and the hapless Pirates Who Don't Do Anything at #28 has now raked in a whopping $12.5 million.
