Two big-budget films bombed over the weekend but that didn't prevent the overall box office from rising nearly 3 percent above the comparable weekend a year ago. While Disney's $300-million epic John Carter may only have brought in $30.18 million and Paramount's Eddy Murphy comedy A Thousand Words , just 3.18 million, several holdovers performed solidly. The second weekend of Universal's Dr. Seuss' The Lorax topped the chart with $38.85 million, while Warner Bros.' Project X , also in its second weekend, held on with $11.14 million. Relativity Media's Act of Valor continued to perform above expectations, with the film placing fourth with $6.99 million, bringing the low-budget film's domestic total to $56.09 million. Thus far this year, the box office is up 17.84 percent, while attendance is up 20.55 percent.
