10 – Puss in Boots – $3.050.000 – $139.522.000

9 – Tower Heist – $4.100.000 – $70.800.000

1 – Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn Part 1 – $16.900.000 – $247.300.000

 

There are a lot of new entries out this week however i have picked 4 of them, two of the new entries have a small chance of getting in the top 10 and two movies which should give twilight a bit of a scare.

First off are the two which have little chance and they are thriller We Need to Talk About Kevin and the highly rated (from us) Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy.

out of the two that will make it into the top 10 the Sitter has the smallest chance of knocking Twilight off the top spot however it’s the huge cast of New Years Eve that i think should charm there way to the summit of the chart.
