Weekend Estimates: True Grit Tops Chart in Third Outing

January 9th, 2011

The post-Holiday hangover at the box office began in earnest this weekend, with the week's new wide release, Season of the Witch, and wide expansion, Country Strong both unable to gain much traction, allowing holdovers to dominate the chart. True Grit will end the weekend on top with an estimated $15 million, according to Paramount, and a running total of $110 million. Little Fockers will finish second with about $13.8 million, per Universal's estimates.

Season of the Witch is headed for $10.7 million and third place for the weekend, which isn't too bad a performance, but its daily trend isn't promising: after opening in third place on Friday, it moved to fourth on Saturday and fifth on Sunday. A short run in theaters looks likely. Country Strong did a bit better on a per theater basis, averaging over $5,000 per venue for an estimated $7.3 million weekend and sixth place.

Black Swan and The King's Speech were again the top performers among holdovers, falling 6% and 12% respectively.
