|Still from Little Fockers|
Staying true to form, the latest installment of the Meet the Parents franchise, Little Fockers, lands on-top of the Box Office this Christmas long weekend. The Comedy starring Robert DeNiro, Ben Stiller, Dustin Hoffman and Barbra Streisand, brought in a healthy $34.1 million from 3,536 theatres, significantly weaker than 2004's Meet the Fockers which brought in $46.1 million in its debut also on Christmas weekend.
Performing surprisingly well in second is True Grit with $25.6 million from 3,047 theatres. It has grossed $36.8 million since Wednesday and was made from $38 million, proving a moneymaker for Paramount Pictures.
Disney's TRON: Legacy 3-D this weekend slips to third spot with $20.1 million in its second week. The visually stunning Film has made $88.2 million in total, just shy of the $170 million it cost to make. Around the world though, it has made $111 million and that is nothing to scoff about.
The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of Dawn Treader started strong three weeks ago and is still holding on in fourth spot. Although it has only made $63.9 million in North America, this third Film from the Narnia series, actually fared much better overseas, where it has made $128.9 million to-date.
Paramount's The Fighter comes in sixth this weekend with $8.5 million, showing in 2,511 theatres, just ahead of critically-panned Gulliver's Travels starring Jack Black, with $7.2 million.
Black Swan continues to exceed its modest beginnings, still in the Top Ten with $6.6 million, good enough to keep it in eighth spot. Showing only in 1,466 theatres, Natalie Portman's Oscar vehicle has garnered $29 million now, being made with a tiny $13 million budget.
