'Skyfall' reclaims the box office, 'Twilight' trips

By Matthew Dougherty,

It has been a surprisingly dull few weeks for the box office as most of the Thanksgiving releases have struggled to beat out two major blockbusters, Skyfall and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2.

But now, James Bond has reclaimed his post as box office king for one last week before the return to Middle Earth.

According to E! 007’s latest made $11 million in its fifth weekend.

Rise of the Guardians beat out Twilight for second, making $10.5 million while the latter made $9.2 million, says ComingSoon.net.

Lincoln and Life of Pi remained in their spots from last weekend, rounding out the top five with $9.1 million and $8.3 million respectively.

Playing for Keeps, the only new release to crack the top ten, flopped, landing in sixth place with $6 million.

Wreck-It Ralph remains steady in its sixth week dropping down only one spot to seventh and making $4.9 million.

Red Dawn and Flight did not move from last week, staying in eighth and ninth. They made $4.2 million and $3.1 million.

Killing Them Softly continues to flounder, coming in tenth in just its second week with $2.7 million.

Next week sees the much anticipated release of the prequel to the Lord of the Rings trilogy The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.
