Box Office Roundup: December 24 - 26, 2010 'Fockers' #1

This weekend found Little Fockers opening in the #1 position with $34 million ($48 million including Wednesday and Thursday’s take). While that may seem like a win for Universal, it is below expectations when compared to the previous sequel, Meet the Fockers, which opened at $46 million in three days.

True Grit captured some pretty impressive numbers in the #2 position. It managed a $25.6 million opening which is the biggest opening ever for Joel and Ethan Coen. Thanks to a well-received advertising campaign and strong word-of-mouth True Grit earned $36.8 million including Wednesday and Thursday’s numbers. And with a budget of a mere $38 million, Paramount should be mighty happy with the past weekend.

The other new release, Gulliver’s Travels, didn’t fare so well. The family film opened with a weak $7.2 million and didn’t seem to attract audiences with its familiar premise. Meanwhile, Tron: Legacy dropped about 54% with just over $20 million. While the film hasn’t done badly with $88 million so far, it certainly hasn’t gained the numbers Disney was certainly hoping for.

Finishing off the top 5; The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader finished at #4 with $10.8 million, followed by Yogi Bear at #5 with 8.8 million.
