Crowded Weekend At Box Office

Four films open wide at the box office this weekend, but each of them faces tough competition from several films that are already there -- especially The Twilight Saga New Moon, The Blind Side, Disney's A Christmas Carol and 2012. They also will come up against Paramount's Up in the Air , which is opening in limited release in 14 markets. On Thursday the National Board of Review named it the best film of the year. Of the newcomers, Jim Sheridan's Brothers, starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Natalie Portman and Tobey Maguire is given the best chance of breaking out. Also opening this weekend is the Robert De Niro-Drew Barrymore comedy Everybody's Fine , the action flick Armored , starring Matt Dillon, Jean Reno and Laurence Fishburne, and the vampire spoof Transylmania. The latter two films were not screened in advance for critics.
