True Grit has finished # 1 in the weekend box office race, an almost unheard-of accomplishment for a picture in its third week of release.  The Jeff Bridges Western epic brought in $15 million in ticket sales.  It edged out Little Fockers, which grossed $13.8 million.

Season of the Witch isn't going to help Nicolas Cage's troubled finances.  His latest flick opened at number three, to a modest $10.7 million.  That doesn't bode well for the actor's asking price going forward.

But Jeff Bridges did it again, posting two movies in the top five.  His TRON: Legacy came in fourth, pulling in another $9.4 milliion.

And Black Swan remains the box office darling. The critically-acclaimed Natalie Portman thriller finished in fifth place, taking in another $8.3 million at the box office.
