No surprise here, The Twilight Saga: New Moon was the number one movie in theaters for the weekend following Thanksgiving. RPattz, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner helped sell another $66 million in tickets. A huge surprise is coming from Sandra Bullock, however. Her The Blind Side finished number two with another $40.1 million in sales. The tearjerker of a football flick will easily end up being Sandy's highest-grossing pic.

The third spot went to the disaster flick, 2012. It brought in another $18 million. Despite simply awful reviews, Old Dogs, with John Travolta and Robin Williams, did a respectable $16.8 million for fourth place. The animated A Christmas Carol took in $16 million for fifth place.

The rest of the top 10: Ninja Assassin - $13.1 million; Planet 51 - $10.2 million; Precious - $7.1 million; Fantastic Mr. Fox - $7 million; The Men Who Stare At Goats - $1.5 million.
