Box office report
For the second weekend in a row, movie-goers celebrated “Four Christmases.”
The Reese Witherspoon-Vince Vaughn comedy topped the box office for the second weekend in a row, ringing in another $18.2 million. The Warner Bros. release boosted its 12-day total to $70.8 million, according to the Associated Press.
“`Four Christmases’ was set up perfectly. It’s an evergreen subject for the holiday period,” Paul Dergarabedian, president of box-office tracker Media By Numbers, told the AP. “This is a movie that can play and is playing from Thanksgiving through the end of the year.”
“Twilight,” the film version of Stephenie Meyer’s popular book, was in second place for the second weekend, with $13.2 million.
Despite the now-confirmed economic recession, Hollywood is still outperforming year’s holiday season; revenues were on the rise for the fifth weekend in a row.
The top 12 movies took in $77.5 million, a 6 percent increase from the first weekend of December 2007, when “The Golden Compass” opened at No. 1 with $25.8 million, the AP reported.
