"Jack the Giant Slayer," the first big-budget action film of the year, was anything but a killer at the weekend box office. The movie, a retelling of the "Jack and the Beanstalk" fairy tale, earned the No. 1 spot on domestic box office charts with 28 million dollars (USD) in ticket sales in U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to studio estimates compiled by Reuters on Sunday.

But that was an underwhelming start for a 3D movie that cost 189 million (USD) to produce, plus tens of millions more to market.

The comedy "Identity Thief" took in 9.7 million to capture second place and the new adult comedy "21 and Over" finished in third place on domestic charts with 9 million in ticket sales from Friday through Sunday.

Low-budget horror sequel "The Last Exorcism Part II" rounded out the top four with 8 million.
