MTV: Box Office Report

The Super Bowl couldn't stop another found-footage flick from topping the box office.

Box-office receipts were up more than 30 percent from last year's Super Bowl weekend as "Chronicle" took the #1 spot with Daniel Radcliffe's first post-"Potter" flick, "The Woman in Black," close behind at #2. "Chronicle" took in $22 million while "Woman in Black" earned $21 million, according to studio estimates. CLICK HERE to read the rest of my report.
