Box Office — “Identity Thief” managed $14, “Snitch” $13, and “Dark Skies” under $9

The final tallies for the weekend at the box office showed the weeks-old “Identity Thief” still showing some legs — $14 million.

“A Good Day to Die Hard” took a deep dip and only hit $10, “Safe Haven” cleared that.

So “Snitch” opened at $13, not bad for Dwayne Johnson, and “Escape From Planet Earth” got one more good weekend in before “Jack the Giant Slayer” sucks all the kid-friendly money out of theaters.

“Dark Skies” came in behind “Safe Haven,” “Die Hard,” a bunch of other films — only $8.85.

“Silver Linings,” which won a single Oscar, was in the top ten. Will “Life of Pi” and “Les Miserables” add on business thanks to the Oscar telecast? I think so. “Argo” too.
