"Little Fockers" has proven to be a perfect option for holidays' movie. It wins at North American Box Office on new year's weekend with $25.8 million cume after debuting on number one during Christmas.

"True Grit" still follows on number two, adding $24.4 million to its domestic revenue. "Tron Legacy" also remains strong, securing the second runner-up position in its third week with $18.8 million gross.

"Yogi Bear" and "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader" swap places with the former rising to number four and the latter dropping to the fifth. The animation earns $12.4 million this weekend, while the third installment of the fantasy film franchise pulls in $10.2 million.

Review for the whole 2010 box office shows a decline in annual revenues. While inflation and pricey 3-D tickets drove revenues above $10 billion for only the second time, the number of tickets sold was only 1.35 billion. This marked the second-worst year since 1996 when 1.33 billion tickets sold to moviegoers.

Moreover, the number of attendance suffered a 5.4% drop from 2009, making it the largest drop since attendance fell 8.1% in 2005, according to Hollywood.com.

Top Ten Movies at Box Office for December 31-January 2:

  1. "Little Fockers" - $25.8 million
  2. "True Grit" - $24.4 million
