Top 10 at the Weekend Box Office


  • In a close race, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows -- Part 1 remained the #1 movie with $50.3 million over Thanksgiving weekend. The next-to-last movie in the series raised its domestic total to $220.4 million after just 10 days in theaters, according to distributor Warner Bros. The film also has taken in $389.2 million overseas, giving it a worldwide total of $609.6 million.
  • Tangled, a 3D animated adventure based on the Rapunzel fable, was easily the top grosser among the new pictures with a surprisingly strong $49.1 million in second place and a $69 million cume since unspooling Wednesday in the biggest Disney-branded animated debut in years. The film far exceeded industry expectations, delivering the second-biggest Thanksgiving debut ever behind Toy Story 2, which had a $57.4 million opening in 1999.
  • The other Wednesday openers did not fare as well. Sony Screen Gem's musical Burlesque kicked up $11.8 million in fourth place during the weekend for a $17.2 million cume since its midweek bow. Fox's romantic comedy Love and Other Drugs earned $9.9 million in sixth place for the three days and a five-day cume of $14 million. CBS Films' Dwayne Johnson action film Faster snagged $8.6 million in seventh place for a $12.2 million cume.
  • Collectively, the weekend top 10 rung up $170.5 million, or 1% less than top performers in the same frame last year.
  • All figures are industry estimates. Final weekend figures will be released on Monday.
