New Moon Tops the Box Office in the Highest-Grossing Thanksgiving Weekend Ever

Box Office: New Moon Still Shines at No. 1

Give thanks for movies! This weekend broke sales records, making it the highest-grossing Thanksgiving holiday ever with $278 million over the five days. In the top spot? New Moon reigned supreme once again, raking in $42.5 million. (That's a significant decline from last week's jaw-dropping $140 million, but a strong showing nonetheless.) Nipping at its heels was the Sandra Bullock feel-good film, The Blind Side which drew in even bigger numbers than its debut last week and took in $40.1 million.

Following far behind in third was 2012 with $18 million, box office newcomer Old Dogs in fourth place with $16.8 million, and A Christmas Carol in fifth with $16 million.
