'The Blind Side' Beats 'New Moon' on Thanksgiving


'The Blind Side' Beats 'New Moon' on Thanksgiving


Though the 'Twilight' sequel lost its crown to the Sandra Bullock's drama film during the holiday, it is expected to power back to the top spot on box office throughout the weekend.

The 20th Century Fox has at least one good reason to be thankful during Thanksgiving. Its film "The Blind Side" topped the holiday box office with $9.5 million, Variety reported. Thus, it tackled the winner of last weekend box office, "The Twilight Saga's New Moon", which collected $9.2 million on Thursday, November 26.

The Sandra Bullock's football drama movie jumped up one position after sitting on the second place with $34.1 million intake on its debut weekend. At that time, the Summit Entertainment's vampire drama film topped the box office chart with $142.8 million grossed domestically. Industry estimates, however, expect this "Twilight" sequel to return to the first place throughout the weekend.

Securing the third place during Thanksgiving was Warner Bros.' "Ninja Assassin", which has just been released on Wednesday, November 25, by pulling in $4.6 million. Walt Disney's PG comedy "Old Dogs" starring John Travolta and Robin Williams took fourth with $4.1 million.

Rounding up the top five was Sony Pictures' "2012 (2009)" with an estimated $4.0 million. Overall, the top ten films on Thanksgiving grossed an estimated $39.4 million, a 20% gain over the holiday's tally last year.

Top Ten Movies at Box Office for November 26:

  1. "The Blind Side" - $9.5 million
  2. "The Twilight Saga's New Moon" - $9.2 million
  3. "Ninja Assassin" - $4.6 million
  4. "Old Dogs" - $4.1 million
