'Jumper' movie takes the lead


Hayden Christensen, Star War's Anakin Skywalker, has proved he could finally make a box-office hit on his own.

Despite strong competition in a Valentine season, his action/sci-fi movie 'Jumper' has ruled the US Box office chart last weekend with $27.2 million gross revenues beating three more new releases such as the musical-drama Step Up 2: The Streets, children-fantasy The Spiderwick Chronicles and romantic comedy Definitely, Maybe.

Jumper reunites Hayden with his Star Wars co-star, the box-office magnet Samuel L. Jackson and it also casts 'Unfaithful' star Diane Lane and promising actor Jamie Bell.

  1. The filming style of Jumper made me feel like i myself was jumping around, which was cool. Also Christensen’s lines were as short as possible, which was ideal for the movie’s overall quality.
