True Grit Wins No. 1 at the Box Office During a Bad January Weekend

Box Office: True Grit Takes No. 1 in a Lackluster Weekend

Box office numbers were down over the holiday break, and the slump continued this weekend. The box office fell 30 percent from last weekend's tally, making it one of the worst first weekends of January since 2000. But at least there's good news for True Grit. The Western took in $15 million, making it the first Coen brothers film to pass the $100 million mark. It also pushed the film ahead of reigning champ Little Fockers for first place. Little Fockers slipped to second with $13.7 million, while the Nicolas Cage flick Season of the Witch debuted at third with $10.7 million.

Tron: Legacy took the fourth spot with $9.8 million, followed by Black Swan, which took in $13 million and cracked the top five for the first time. Though Gwyneth Paltrow's Country Strong went wide in more theaters this weekend, it wasn't enough to push the film to the top of the competition; it came in sixth with $7.3 million.

True Grit is a great movie! I think I may be one of the only people that didn't like Black Swan.
