There were only 2 new entries in the top 10 this week however one of them finally knocked Twilight off the top spot, the first new entry went to the screwball comedy the Sitter but the new entry that gave those vampires a kicking was the star studded cast of New Years Eve.

Before i get on to the chart there was another new entry of note it didn’t make it into the top 10 but Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy opened up in only 4 screens but took $320.000 giving it a average of $75.250 per screen.

There are 3 huge new release this week that should make up the top 3, first off the movie that will go in to the number 3 spot should be Alvin and the Chipmunks Chipwrecked, secondly the movie that i think will go into the number two spot is Sherlock Holmes a Game of Shadows and finally the movie that i predict that will go to number 1 is Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol.

US Box Office Top 10: 02-04/12

There were no new entries in the top 10 this week so it was up to last weeks highest new entry the Muppets to knock Twilight off the top spot however it couldn’t manage that so those vampires, werewolves and moaning girls managed to hang on to the top spot.

10 – Puss in Boots – $3.050.000 – $139.522.000

9 – Tower Heist – $4.100.000 – $70.800.000

8 – Immortals – $4.394.000 – $75.588.000

7 – The Descendants – $5.200.000 – $18.087.000

6 – Jack and Jill – $5.500.000 – $64.308.000

5 – Happy Feet 2 – $6.000.000 – $51.785.000

4 – Arthur Christmas – $7.350.000 – $25.292.000

3 – Hugo – $7.625.000 – $25.188.000

2 – The Muppets – $11.200.000 – $56.137.000

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.
