Universal has estimated that Safe House will earn $28.5 million for the four-day holiday weekend, while Screen Gems and parent company Sony are estimating that The Vow will gross $27.4 million.

Overseas, the film grossed $6.8 million in its second weekend from 24 markets for an international cume of $22.8 million and worldwide total of $108.3 million.
Sony‘s Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance grossed $22 million for the three-day weekend to take the No. 3 spot though the film is expected to post a four-day holiday gross of $25.5 million.

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, receiving a tepid C+ CinemaScore, was fueled by males, who made up 61% of the audience. Moviegoers under the age of 25 made up 48 percent of the audience. Sony and Hyde Park Entertainment co-produced and co-financed the sequel, which cost $57 million to produce.

This Means War opened at No. 5 for the three-day weekend grossing an estimated $17.6 million. The romantic drama lost the No. 4 spot to Warner Bros. and New Line‘s sequel Journey 2: The Mysterious Island that grossed $20.1 million for the three-day weekend.
