Welcome to the Box Office Report where we always take a bowl full of stuffing into the theater with us. Why do you think that's crazy? You're crazy.
1. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 (Summit): $43.1 million in 4,070 theaters [Week 2]
So, everyone went to the movies this weekend. This is the first week with high double digit grosses for every movie in the top five in... weeks? Maybe months? Feels good to be home, baby girl. Twilight still has the box office in a tight headlock, but that's not surprising. Its biggest competition this week was the Red Dawn remake, and that didn't even make the top five. Everyone is really happy with the weekend, though, because it was the highest grossing five-day Thanksgiving weekend ever.
2. Skyfall (Sony): $36 million in 3,526 theaters [Week 3]
Know what didn't work? That Heineken product placement. Maybe they should try and get into the inevitable Flight sequel.
3. Lincoln (Buena Vista): $25 million in 2,018 theaters [Week 2]
So Lincoln actually made $4 million more than it did last weekend and only added about 250 theaters. That's impressive. Movies rarely make more money on week 2, even with additional theaters, which might mean Lincoln has some slow-cooking word-of-mouth buzz. Like a good pot of chilli, or ribs. Mmmm, slow cooked ribs.
