Box Office Guru Wrapup: True Grit Takes #1 Spot Over Weak Frame

Holiday holdovers True Grit and Little Fockers swapped positions atop the North American box office as new releases were met with modest business. Kidpics suffered the worst declines coming off of the New Year's holiday session while awards hopefuls held up the best as audiences caught up on buzzworthy films getting the most acclaim. Overall it was a sluggish session with the top ten slumping to the worst showing in 11 years for the first weekend of January. More…

Box Office Guru Wrapup: Fockers Win Ho-Ho-Hum Weekend

With studios dropping lumps of coal into North American multiplexes, many moviegoers stayed away over the Christmas holiday weekend as the box office fell sharply from recent years. Christmas Eve fell on a Friday helping to disrupt business, but a lack of exciting product prevented any one film from becoming a sensation. Universal saved itself from ending the year with only one number one hit with the comedy sequel Little Fockers, which topped the yuletide frame with an estimated $34M from Friday-to-Sunday. The critically panned pic grabbed $48.3M since its Wednesday debut and joined Despicable Me as the studio's only releases in 2010 to open in the top spot. Fockers averaged $9,620 from 3,536 theaters over the weekend period. Read on for the full report. More…

Critics Consensus: True Grit Is Certified Fresh

Happy holidays from RT! This week at the movies, we've got frontier justice (True Grit, starring Jeff Bridges and Hailee Steinfeld), family awkwardness (Little Fockers, starring Ben Stiller and Robert De Niro), and a fantastic voyage (Gulliver's Travels, starring Jack Black and Amanda Peet). What do the critics have to say? It takes guts to try to fill John Wayne's shoes. But if anyone can substitute for the Duke, well, why not the Dude? The critics say the Coen Brothers' (relatively) straightforward remake of True Grit is a rewarding movie in its own right -- it's tough, sly, and filled with marvelous performances. More…
