Still from True Grit
Despite early predictions that True Grit would take the top spot at the Box Office this New Year`s Weekend, your top three is identical to that of the week prior.  Last week`s champion Little Fockers, took top spot with $26.3 million from 3,554 theatres over a determined True Grit which brought in $24.5 million from 3,083 theatres. 

Even though it hasn't exceeded expectations, Disney`s TRON: Legacy continues to perform consistently in third again with an estimated $18.3 million this weekend.  Another representative from the same studio Tangled 3-D lands in sixth - also v. consistent considering it is now in its fifth week of release, surviving a competitive Holiday release schedule.

The Fighter likely will surpass the $45 million mark this weekend in seventh, bringing in $10 million for Paramount Pictures, just ahead of two other Best Picture contenders in Black Swan (ninth - $8.4 million) and The King`s Speech (tenth - $7.6 million), the latter which just expanded to 700 theatres.  In Canada, both Fighter and Speech are distributed by Alliance Films, marking a successful last quarter which will also see expansions for Sofia Coppola`s Somewhere and Derek Cianfrance`s Blue Valentine in coming weeks.
