Fockers, however, came in a close second with nearly $13.8 million for the weekend.

As far as new releases go, Nicolas Cage’s latest, Season of the Witch, debuted in the #3 spot with a respectable $10.8 million. Country Strong, featuring Gwyneth Paltrow as a has been country star, expanded into wide release and found itself in the #6 spot, earning $7.3 million.
