Box Office Weekend:New Moon Wins Big

New Moon broke a few records this weekend but not the biggest one. It's final total was 141 million, huge compared to it's previous opening of about 69 million. Still the drop off is indicitive that it may not last the week much less the next weekend. With Thanksgiving coming up Thursday and Friday a day off it may be able to stay on top but it will fall big time. The Blind Side managed a respectable 34 million weekend, not bad for Sandra Bullock who is having a good year so far, minus All about Steve.2012 fell to just 25 million but made it over the 100 milion mark total this week, while newcomer Planet 51 opened meekly.
