"Marley & Me" Barks Atop Crowded Box-Office Christmas Weekend 


The oh-so cute "Marley & Me" debuted on top of a very busy Christmas weekend with $37 million in ticket sales and a total of $51.7 million since opening Christmas Day.

In fact, all the new movies enjoyed a huge happy holiday Christmas weekend.

Adam Sandler's "Bedtime Stories" came in second with $28.1 million and $38.6 million since Christmas day.

The happy story at the box-office? "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" opened strong at No. 3 with $27 million for the weekend and $39 million since premiering Christmas Day.

For a 3-hour 3-hankie film, that's a huge opening, and yes, "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" is one of my favorite films of 2008!

Heck, even Tom Cruise's much-maligned "Valkyrie" enjoyed a great opening landing at NO. 4 with $21.5 million and $30 million since opening on Christmas.

The other happy story at the box-office this past weekend? All the Oscar-buzzed flicks enjoyed ho-ho-hos at the box-office. Movies such as "Doubt," "Frost/Nixon," "Slumdog Millionaire," "The Wrestler," and "Milk" marched solidly at the box-office!
