007 Shoots Twilight Down To Third In The U.S Box Office Chart

It's been a two way battle between the latest Bond film, Skyfall, and the final instalment of the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2, for the top spot of the U.S Box Office chart. However, things have been shaken up a bit. Here's our Box Office roundup.

Skyfall has proved to have staying power, as it overtook Twilight into first place this weekend, managing $11m in its 5th week. And it got worse for the Vampire franchise, as it dropped out of the top 2 for the first time since it's Thanksgiving release, placing 3rd with $9.2m. Breaking Dawn - Part 2 is still leading in terms of cumulative gross though, with $268.7m in four weeks compared to $261.6m in Skyfall's 5. Dreamworks Studios' Rise of The Guardians managed to upset the top 2, placing 2nd with $10.54m. Steven Spielberg's Lincoln - a strong contender for Oscar nominations right across the board - is 4th with $9.1m, with fellow Academy Award hopeful, Ang Lee's Life of Pi in 5th with $8.3m. 

Playing For Keeps opened to $6m, and takes 6th spot, while Disney's latest animated treat; the videogame comedy Wreck it Ralph stays in the top 10 in its 6th week, $4.9m earns it 7th spot. Red Dawn lands just above Denzel Washington's Flight in 8th with $4.26m; the aviation tale of a pilot with alcohol problems continues to underperform in 8th with $3.13m, although Washington's performance continues to hold an outside chance for an Oscar nomination. Brad Pitt's Killing Them Softly, which didn't fair too well with the critics, rounds off the top 10 with $2.78m and a cumulative $11.8m after two weeks of showings.
