Top 10 at the Weekend Box Office


  • Little Fockers grossed an estimated $26.3 million over the holiday weekend to top the box office and jump the $100 million mark. The film now has a cume of $103.2 million. However, it is pacing well behind previous sequel Meet the Fockers, which earned $162.5 million during the same frame in 2004.
  • Paramount's True Grit finished at #2 -- earning another $24.5 million -- and raising its domestic cume to $86.8 million, the best ever gross for the Coen brothers.
  • Except for True Grit and other top awards contenders, the Christmas season has been a disappointment for Hollywood studios. Business over New Year's weekend was down a hefty 27% from last year, when Avatar and Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel, both from 20th Century Fox, did big business.
  • Big losers for the 2010 holidays include Fox's 3D family adventure Gulliver's Travels, which grossed an estimated $9.1 million to come in #8 for New Year's weekend and raise its cume to only $27.2 million. Sony also stumbled with Christmas romantic comedy How Do You Know, which fell out of the top 10 already and has a cume of just $25.1 million.
  • While it didn't become the breakout hit that Disney had hoped for, the studio's 3D Tron: Legacy was still the biggest grosser of the two-week holiday stretch. The film finished #3 over New Year's weekend at the domestic box office, grossing an estimated $18.3 million for a cume of $130.9 million.
  • All figures are industry estimates. Final weekend figures will be released on Monday.
