"The Twilight Saga: New Moon" Rises at Box Office Again!  


Vampires and werewolves continued to dominate box-office with a $42.5 million Thanksgiving weekend for "The Twilight Saga: New Moon."

Based on Stephenie Meyer's novel, "New Moon" remained on top even though during Thanksgiving day, "The Blind Side" seemed to topple the vampire romance flick.

The Sandra Bullock starrer proved to be strong in its second weekend, earning $40.1 million for the No. 2 position.

The best part? So far, Hollywood has made $9.5 billion and it's almost on the verge of breaking its previous record of $9.7 billion set in 2007.

"2012" remained at No. 3 with $18 million. New releases did not quite do good at the box office. Disney's "Old Dogs" starring John Travolta and Robin Williams only scored $16.8 million to come in at No. 4 while Warner Bros.' "Ninja Assasin" opened at a weak No. 6 with $13.1 million.

My pick of the week, "Fantastic Mr. Fox," pulled in $7 million to finish at No. 9 and the gripping post-apocalyptic drama "The Road" opened strongly with a $1.5 million weekend.

Here are the Top 10 Box Office films for the weekend of Nov. 27th:

1. "The Twilight Saga: New Moon," $42.5 million.


2. "The Blind Side," $40.1 million.
