'Roommate' moves into box office's top spot

The college thriller "The Roommate" took the top spot at the box office with a $15.6 million debut during a typically slow Super Bowl weekend in which the NFL championship game may preoccupy some movie fans, The Associated Press reports.

The Sony release features Leighton Meester as a psycho freshman who becomes obsessed with her new roomie (Minka Kelly).

The 3-D underwater cave adventure "Sanctum," whose producers include "Avatar" creator James Cameron, drew even more modest crowds for second, with $9.2 million. Released by Universal, "Sanctum" is a survival story about explorers trapped in flooded caves during a monster storm.
