'Fockers' Close 2010

Little Fockers, the latest entry in the Meet the Parents franchise, closed the year at the top of the box office, with an estimated $26.3 million over the New Year's weekend.  The film's total grosses so far stand at $103.2 million, measured against an estimated $100 million production budget.  It was down 14.7% week-over-week.

Riding strong word of mouth and great reviews, True Grit also held onto its box office spot over its second weekend, dropping a modest 1.4% to $24.5 million for a second place finish.  The film has grossed $86.8 million so far, against a $38 million budget.  This means the film will have no difficulty getting into the black over the course of its run.

'Fockers' Take Top Spot, But Western Shows 'True Grit'

Little Fockers, the second sequel to Meet the Parents, took the top spot over the Christmas weekend, with $34.8 million in grosses.  Since opening on December 22nd, the film has grossed $48.3 million.  This is well behind the prior film in the series, Meet the Fockers, likely owing to the long delay since Fockers was in theatres and abysmal critic reviews and word of mouth.  The film will undoubtedly earn back its $100 million budget, but it may be a little while before we see this tired franchise extended further.

Second place went to True Grit, the Coen brothers' western opus based on the novel of the same name.  The film had a $25.6 million weekend, bringing its total grosses to $36.8 million so far.  With a $38 million budget, True Grit is a

'Tron' Shines, 'Yogi' Bear-ish

Tron: Legacy, the long-gestating sequel to Tron, opened with a strong $43.6 million debut.  That's nearly 10 times what the original film opened with 28 years ago, where it ultimately grossed $33 million (in 1982 dollars, of course).  Of course, Tron: Legacy's production budget is significantly larger than what the original film's was, as well.  The new film cost $170 million versus the original's $17 million budget (again, in 1982 dollars, of course).  All things being equal, with the holiday season, international grosses and home video and ancillary revenues, Tron: Legacy should have no issue turning a profit.
