Tron: Legacy Is the Number One Movie in America

Tron Leaves Its Legacy at the Box Office

All the special effects of the futuristic Tron: Legacy were enough to lure audiences to the theaters. The sequel scored the top spot at the box office for its opening weekend, earning $43.6 million. Behind it was another newcomer, Yogi Bear, which took in $16.7 million. The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader was knocked from number one and slid to third place with $12.4 million.

The Fighter reaped the benefits of a wider release and many award nominations: the boxing film was boosted from 19th to fourth with $12.2 million. Meanwhile, The Tourist stumbled to fifth place with $8.7 million. New romantic comedy How Do You Know didn't receive a warm welcome: the Reese Witherspoon/Paul Rudd/Owen Wilson flick took in just $7.6 million.

i'm happy that it did well. i really enjoyed it when i saw it this weekend and i think that there's something to be said about 'sequels' from back in the day. :) i hope that more people go to see it now that there's so much positive buzz around it. there were a few weeks there that people weren't saying the best things about it - but it's really well made - SO GO SEE IT!
