The New Year's holiday undeniably is the perfect period for family to spend time together and so has brought such great advantage to family-friendly flick "Night at the Museum."

Yes, the Fox release again rules in its second round on the box office during the four-day weekend ended Monday, January 1, 2007, pulling a superb number of $48.2 million ($ 36.8 million for Friday-Sunday earnings) to once more put its rival "The Pursuit of Happyness" on number two for the inspiring tale scores far below at $25.4 million ($19.4 million) in its third spin on the chart.

Third-spot holder surprisingly goes to "Dreamgirls" which jumps a mammoth 105 percent to amazingly collect $18.3 million ($14.1 million) followed by "Charlotte's Web" and "The Good Shepherd" with $14.9 million ($11.7 million) and $14.2 million ($11 million), respectively, to round out the big five of the list.

MGM's "Rocky Balboa" comes next on the sixth slot after managing to garner $13.7 million ($10.6 million) into its pocket to make a total gross of $51.1 million, forcing Fox's fantasy feature "Eragon" to go down a notch from its last-week position as the pic only reaches a fair result of $10.8 million ($8.2 million) this time.

The rest positions arranged in order up to the tenth rank are sports drama film "We Are Marshall" with $10.4 million ($8.1 million), animated penguin romp "Happy Feet" with $10 million ($7.7 million), and Sony Pictures' "The Holiday" with $8.8 million ($6.7 million).
