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.

I'm happy for New Moon. I helped with the $42.5M this weekend. LOL!!! Heard the Blind Side was good so I will go see it.

YAY for Blind Side, thought it was a great movie and definitely better than New Moon in terms of acting and the theme (not going to see it in theaters).

i'm not surprised that it's still #1 and that it didn't make nearly the numbers that it did last week since everyone was soo excited to see it. i was actually thinking about seeing it again since i'm not one of those who thinks that it's better than the first one and i figure that maybe i need to see it again to get why everyone thinks that. i DID go see blind side and thought it was great so i'm thrilled that it's doing so well.
