Box Office results for the past weekend!

1 Four Christmases$31.8 M

2 Bolt $26.6 M

3 Twilight $26.3 M

4 Quantum of Solace $19.5 M

5 Australia $14.8 M

6 Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa $14.5 M

7 Transporter 3$12.3 M

8 Role Models $5.2 M

The holiday film "Four Christmases pulled an upset over the weekend, knocking "Twilight" off its perch. "Bolt" made even more money this weekend than on its opening weekend. Guess word has spread on how the film "Twilight" is. Bond stays alive and don't plan on seeing "Australia" as high on the list as it is now next week. "Transporter 3" is up there only because the fans of the previous movies helped it.
