New Moon Gobbles Up Thanksgiving Box Office

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant

I’ll admit that there’s a small part of me that was hoping NEW MOON‘s box office numbers would drop like a rock in its second weekend, but the TWILIGHT sequel managed to pull in almost $66 million to win the five-day holiday weekend.  I guess if there’s anything surprising about this week’s numbers, it’s that THE BLIND SIDE managed $57 million and actually gave NEW MOON a run for its money.  OLD DOGS and NINJA ASSASSIN were the only two new wide releases this weekend and they managed $24 and $21 million respectively.  Next week sees the release of BROTHERS and UP IN THE AIR and even though both of those films have the star power, I don’t think either of them have the appeal to challenge NEW MOON.
