Jennifer Aniston had her second number one film in as many months as the romantic comedy “He’s Just Not That Into You” earned $27.5 million, according to studio estimates from box office tracking firm Nielsen EDI. Her canine comedy “Marley & Me” was the number one in December.

“He’s Just Not That Into You” is based on a self-help book by Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo. The film is a comedic look at the elaborate excuses women create as they date and rate prospective mates.


The Liam Neeson thriller “Taken” took the number two spot this week, raking in $20.3 million in its second week out. Newcomer “Coraline” had a third-place debut with $16.3 million. The animated film is based on the children’s book of the same name by fantasy author Neil Gaiman.

Steve Martin’s “The Pink Panther 2” was fourth with $12 million, while “Paul Blart: Mall Cop” keeps chugging along, scoring fifth place with $11 million. The only other major newcomer, the action film “Push”, took in with $10.2 and earning sixth place.

Among the Academy Awards best-picture contenders, “Slumdog Millionaire” is the only movie that remains in the top ten. It made $7.4 million and raised its total to $77.4 million. Final figures are due Monday.
