"New Year's Eve" dethrones "The Twilight Saga's Breaking Dawn Part I" on the North American box office in its debut week. Though so, the star-studded romantic comedy only grosses $13 million, marking the lowest opening of 2011. The result is rather unimpressive since the Garry Marshall-directed film, which receives a "B+" CinemaScore, was expected to grab at least $20 million on its first weekend.

Dan Fellman, Warner Bros. Pictures president of domestic distribution, explained, "The box office was just in really bad shape. While we had the No. 1 movie, we were No. 1 in a very soft market." He continued, "There weren't enough moviegoers and the only thing you can hope for is that the big Chirstmas films, which start to kick in next weekend, help to pick up the pace."
