The Blind Side Overtakes New Moon at the Box Office

Box Office: The Blind Side Tackles New Moon

Looks like New Moon should have kept an eye on its blind side! The surprise hit has been nipping at the Twilight sequel's heels since they were both released two weeks ago, but this is the first weekend that the football drama actually took the top spot at the box office. The Blind Side earned $20.4 million, while New Moon pulled in $15.7 million.

In its first weekend out, Jake Gyllenhaal and Tobey Maguire's sibling thriller Brothers nabbed the third spot with $9.7 million, while A Christmas Carol continues to bring in audiences with $7.5 million. Rounding out the top five is Robin Williams's comedy Old Dogs, with a $6.9 million haul.

Jason Reitman's Up in the Air also had an impressive showing, taking in $1.2 million. The film was only open in 15 theaters, proving that all the hype is already paying off for the George Clooney dramedy.

i can't imagine that anyone's surprised by this. i think that we all went to see New Moon when it first came out which meant that last weekend and this weekend Blind Side was open to make a strong play. both were good movies though :)
