    I couldn't find a 2012 Box Office thread, so here goes the take for this weekend. Opening at #1 in it's first weekend is Relativity Media's Act Of Valor with $24.7 million. What started out as a short training video spawned into a full fledged theatrical movie with a cast made up mostly of actual Navy SEALS. The Navy has actually stated Act Of Valor will be a recruiting video for future SEALS. With a budget of only $18 million, 'Valor' is an instant success. In it's first weekend in theaters, Tyler Perry's Good Deeds opened in second place with $16 million. His last film, Madea's Big Happy Family, opened with $25 million in 2011, but his last non-Madea related film, For Colored Girls, opened with $20 million in 2010. Journey 2: The Mysterious Island continues to perform well for Warner Brothers, netting $13.47 in it's third week in theaters. The family film is $10 million ahead from Journey To The Center Of The Earth, in it's comparable third weekend. The Vow took a huge 57% hit in it's second week bringing in $10 million, for a $30.3 million total. It's currently made over $105 million worldwide, so it's more than tripled it's $30 million budget. Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace 3D adds another $3.1 million in it's third week in release for a $40 million + total. Next week will see Dr. Suess' The Lorax up against Project X. Lorax is trending easily to be the top film of the weekend.
