New comedy releases weren't enough to knock Puss in Boots out of the first spot at the box office — the animated comedy starring Antonio Banderas's voice as a sword-wielding cat dominated the weekend with $33 million. The Ben Stiller-led Tower Heist came in second with $25.1 million, while a fellow new comedy release, A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas, followed in third place with $13.1 million. The horror sequel Paranormal Activity 3 landed in the No. 4 spot with $8.5 million. Justin Timberlake's sci-fi drama In Time rounded out the top five with $7.7 million.
