Well I can finally report a box office weekend in which Twilight is not number 1!!! The saddest news of all is that New Years Eve is the winner this weekend...making us all losers. I someday wish to live in a world where a movie with a 27% on Rotten Tomatoes doesn't take the box office title 3 weekends in a row only to be usurped on week 4 by a movie with a 7%. Gah, I don't want to keep talking or it will get nasty. The good news is that no movies did well this weekend as New Years took the top prize with only $13.7 million...extremely weak. Second place went to The Sitter which took in $10 million followed by Breaking Dawn which pulled $7.9 million. Fourth place saw The Muppets with just over $7 million and Arthur Christmas rounded out the top 5 with $6.6 million. Next week should be absolutely massive with the triple release of Mission Impossible, Sherlock Holmes and Alvin and the Chipmunks. Want to hear my prediction? Sherlock and Mission Impossible split audiences while the Chipmunks get all the kids and families to take the first place spot.
