Four Christmases Tops The US Box Office

Despite some awfully mixed reviews, Vince Vaughn and Reese Witherspoon’s new comedy Four Christmases won the box office weekend across the pond with $46.7 million.

The long Thanksgiving weekend boosted both the comedy and Disney ‘toon Bolt, which actually made more money in its second week to nab second place with $26.5 million. Twilight, meanwhile, dropped 62% to make $26.3 million in third, though its overall tally is still healthy at $119 million.

Quantum Of Solace remains strong, though dropped to fourth with $19.5 million. Australia couldn’t quite win over audiences in its launch weekend of $148 million, but managed $20 million across the five-day period.

Finally, the other new wide release, Transporter 3, stiffed in seventh place and $12.3 million over the weekend, yet still notched up $18.5 million. The full charts are below.
