Nothing really spectacular about this past weekend. "The Day the Earth Stood Still" headed to the #1 spot due to it being the only big movie coming out this weekend, and the rest of the films are all hanging in there from the past couple of weekends. Nothing special...and now there are two holiday films up there. Still saddened by the "Punisher: War Zone" bombing...
