Disney’s ‘Tangled’ crept over ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1‘ in a very lackluster weekend with Darren Aronofsky’s ‘Black Swan‘ opening very well alongside Danny Boyle’s ’127 Hours’ which is still holding strong.
1. Tangled (Disney) Week 2 [3,603 Theaters] Friday $5.1M, Saturday $9.9M, Weekend $21.5M (-55.9%), Cume $96.5M
The weekend after Thanksgiving is always very quiet, and studios don’t usually put out any wide releases. Rogue/Relativity made an exception with ‘The Warrior’s Way‘, which bombed rather well so case made for keeping the status quo on films. Usually this is one of those weekend when films that going up for Academy Award nominations are put out in limited release such as ‘Black Swan‘ and ‘The King’s Speech‘.
So Disney’s ‘Tangled‘ did as we expected last weekend and has moved up to the number one spot on the box office weekend charts even though it’s number dropped nearly 60% from their last week’s opening. The animated film is doing well and shows that Disney is still kicking it with this type of movie. When it hits DVD/blu-ray, ‘Tangled’ will surely do even more monster business.

2. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 (Warner Bros) Week 3 [4,125 Theaters]
Friday $4.8M, Saturday $7.4M, Weekend $16.7M, (-65.9%) Cume $244.2M
‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1‘ dropped over 60% leaving it still trailing ‘Twilight Sage: New Moon’ and all of the previous Harry Potter films after 17 days.

3. Burlesque (Screen Gems/Sony) Week 2 [3,037 Theaters]
Friday $2M, Saturday $2.5M, Weekend $6.1M (-48.9%), Cume $26.9M
‘Burlesque‘ held in there tied with ‘Unstoppable‘ this week even with all the naysaying that the film was Screen Gems Clint Culpepper’s nail in the coffin as Sony would be ousting him at any moment. That’s doubtful as the musical film that brought Cher back to the big screen will slowly make it’s money back on DVD/blu-ray.

4. Unstoppable (Fox) Week 4 [3,152 Theaters]
Friday $1.9M, Saturday $2.7M, Weekend $6.1M, (-46.6%) Cume $68.8M
‘Unstoppable’ just keeps rolling along and moved up some notches to tie with ‘Burlesque’ this week. This has done much better than Denzel Washington’s last Tony Scott pic, ‘The Taking Of Pelham 1 2 3′, plus it’s still tracking well with an older demographic much in the vein of ‘Red’.

5. Love And Other Drugs (Fox) Week 2 [2,458 Theaters] Friday $1.9M, Saturday $2.3M, Weekend $5.7M (-41.5%), Cume $22.6M
‘Love and Other Drugs‘ had a nominal drop, but the Anne Hathaway Jake Gyllenhaal starrer proved that sending out sexy shots for marketing won’t always work like it did for ‘Life As We Know It‘. In all honesty, there’s something more sexy about Josh Duhamel sucking from a long neck bottle than a flashing glimpse of Jake Gyllenhaal’s butt.

6. Megamind (DreamWorks Animation/Paramount) Week 5 [3,173 Theaters] Friday $1.1M, Saturday $2.3M, Weekend $5M, (-60.0%) Cume $136.7M
‘Megamind’ is still holding on with numbers that have been average with a 60% drop from last week’s numbers and dropping 3 places this week.

7. Due Date (Warner Bros) Week 5 [2,450 Theaters] Friday $1.3M, Saturday $1.8M, Weekend $4.2M, (-41.2%) Cume $91M
‘Due Date‘ has made back it’s production budget and a big chunk of the advertising spent so we may wind up getting ‘Another Due Date‘ which we are hoping doesn’t happen.

8. Faster (CBS Films/Sony) Week 2 [2,470 Theaters]
Friday $1.2M, Saturday $1.6M, Weekend $3.8M (-55%), Cume $18.1M
‘Faster‘ helped push out CBS Films COO Bruce Tobey after it’s rather weak opening weekend so it’s no surprise to see it nearly slipping off the top ten.

9. The Warrior’s Way (Rogue/Relativity) NEW [1,622 Theaters]
Friday $1.1M, Saturday $1.1M, Weekend $3M
Rogue/Relativity decided to take a gamble putting ‘The Warrior’s Way‘ into wide release which gave them a post-Thanksgiving turkey headache. Our sources are telling us that since there was barely any advertising/marketing done for the film, Relativity’s not taking it too hard even though they’ve not been on the best role with their movies this year.

10. The Next Three Days (Lionsgate) Week 3 [2,236 Theaters] Friday $815K, Saturday $M, Weekend $2.6M, Cume $18.4M
‘The Next Three Days‘ Russell Crowe underperformer is nearly off the charts as has been Crowe’s temper about his latest films performances at the box office. Someone needs a timeout from what we’ve been hearing along with reading scripts that might help you regain your acting footing.

Black Swan made quite the sensation at the box office weekend making over $77,000 per screen and with it’s Academy Award campaigning, this one will easily be in the top ten next weekend. It was right behind our other favorite ’127 Hours’ which was at number 12 this week. The Oscar race is heating up rather nicely nice.
