Box Office

Twilight No Longer On Top

In the midst of the family-friendly holiday season, Sandra Bullock’s heartwarming new film The Blind Side came in at No. 1 at the box office this weekend with $20.4 million. George Clooney’s corporate drama Up in the Air capitalized on weeks of buzz and was the other big winner, earning $1.2 million in just 15 theaters. Twilight continues to decline in the wake of its huge opening weekend, bringing in $15.7 million in its third weekend, while four new releases failed to live up to expectations—Brothers, Armored, Everybody’s Fine, and Transylmania all opened to less than $10 million each.
