It was a tug of war at the box office between the Dwayne Johnson actioner, Snitch, and Identity Thief; but Thief won out the weekend.
The film came in first, with Snitch coming in second, though the severe snow storm that hit most of the mid-section of the country and northeast during the later part of last week, no doubt, affected box office totals this weekend.
Meanwhile A Good Day to Die Hard took a hard drop at the box office, no doubt, due to bad word of mouth.
