WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: On Super Bowl weekend, The Roommate tops the chart with a bettr-than-expected 15.6 million against a 16 million budget (though some reports say it was half that). Screen Gems has practically turned the bad-but-profitable PG-13 horror-thriller into a science. Sanctum comes in second with 9.2 million, which was also better than expected. Was this cabin fever following the big bizzard? Hmmm. No Strings Attached shows with 8.4 million, on a 37.4 percent drop that suggests football counter-programming.

Rounding out the Top 5 is The Green Hornet with 6.1 million. Hornet likely suffered from the Big Game competition, but has more than recouped its budget worldwide.
