BOX OFFICE

‘DEVIL’ INSIDE

Ben Affleck’s blind crime fighter ka-powed his way to the top of the box office, making Daredevil the second-highest-grossing February opening ever with $45 mil, but J. Lo’s supersqueeze wasn’t invulnerable to the blizzard that hit the Northeast over the four-day weekend and hurt grosses across the board. While How to Lose a Guy dropped only 13 percent from last week and Chicago enjoyed a hearty boost from its 13 Oscar noms, My Big Fat Greek Wedding finally fell from the top 20 after a 43-week run — just in time for the indie’s big fat DVD release.
