Posted Sunday February 12, 2012 7:53 AM GMT

Pulling in much higher than anticipated numbers, Hollywood is rolling in the cash with "The Vow" leading the way by topping the box office over the weekend of February 10-12, 2012.

The Rachel McAdams/Channing Tatum starring romantic drama took home an approximate $15.3 million on Friday and another $16.4 million on Saturday while pacing towards a pack-leading $41 million total.

Just slightly behind "The Vow" is another theatrical newcomer in the Denzel Washington/Ryan Reynolds spearheaded crime/thriller "Safe House," which took in an estimated $13.8 million on opening day and $16.5 million on its second day while projected to end up with $39 million during its first weekend of release.

Rounding out the top five at the box office in estimated weekend totals are the Josh Hutcherson/Vanessa Hudgens/Dwayne Johnson starring adventure tale "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island" ($27 million), followed by "Star Wars 3D" ($23 million) and last week's winner "Chronicle" ($12 million).
