Still from New Year's Eve
On a weak weekend at the Box Office, Warner Bros.' New Year's Eve takes the top spot with only $13.7million, a far cry from Director Garry Marshall's last Effort Valentine's Day, which brought-in $56 million in its debut back in 2010. The Rom-Com with an All-star Cast overall has been panned by Critics, but likely will have an impact into the Holidays and currently it is showing at 3,505 theatres in North America.

20th Century Fox's The Sitter starring Jonah Hill debuts in second this weekend with $10 million, also opening to negative reviews overall, although it didn't cost nearly as much to make as New Year's Eve.  Finally knocked-out of top spot is The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Pt. 1 with $8 million this weekend, accounting for a North American total of $259 million in four weeks of release.

Disney's The Muppets is still going steady in fourth spot with $7.2 million in its third week.  In total it has earned $65.7 million, earning back already its $45 in Production costs.  Paramount Pictures' Hugo 3-D meanwhile is in sixth spot with $6 million, expanding to 2,608 theatres.

The Descendants continues to impress in seventh spot for Fox Searchlight, bringing in $4.3 million, showing in 876 theatres only and a total of $23.5 million in three weeks.  Universal Pictures' Tower Heist rounds out the Top Ten with $2.5 million in its sixth week of release.
