Safe House
Los Angeles - The President's Day holiday weekend box office is too close to call as the action tale Safe House and the love story The Vow compete for the No 1 spot.

Based on Sunday's studio estimates, Denzel Washington's Safe House, which was largely filmed in Cape Town, had a slim lead with $24m from Friday to Sunday. That's a fraction ahead of Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum's The Vow with $23.6m.

The winner won't be known for certain until Tuesday, when studios will report final numbers for the long holiday weekend.

The top-five was bunched up tightly. Nicolas Cage's sequel Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance opened at No 3 with $22m.

Journey 2: The Mysterious Island was No 4 with $20.1m. Reese Witherspoon's love-triangle comedy This Means War debuted at No 5 with $17.6m.
