The couple of weeks after Thanksgiving always tend to be dominated by holdovers at the US box office, but this year it’s been particularly light on new entries, seemingly because everyone is running scared of The Hobbit, which is expected to completely take over cinemas this coming weekend.
This has allowed Skyfall to rise back to the top of the US box office on its fifth weekend, taking $11.4 million over the three days. It’s not a huge amount to make it to the top of the chart, and indeed overall it’s been the third worst weekend at the boox office this year. However it’s good news for Skyfall, as no movie has toped the box office on its fifth weekend since 2010.
The only major new release tanked, with the Gerard Butler soccer themed rom-com Playing For Keeps taking just $6 million on its first three days.
Take a look below for the US box office top 10 for the weekend of December 7th-9th.
|Rank||Title||Weekend Gross (millions)||Total Gross to date (millions)|
|2||Rise Of The Guardians||$10.5||$61.9|
|3||The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2||$9.2||$268.7|
|5||Life Of Pi||$8.3||$60.8|
|6||Playing For Keeps||$6.0||$6.0|
|10||Killing Them Softly||$2.7||$11.7|
