Almost up to to date with this series! Keep your fingers crossed!

Some more big numbers from January, this time from the weekend of January 16-19. We have the premiere of Paul Blart: Mall Cop with a huge $39.2 million.

Sharply dropping off from first place to land in second is Gran Torino with $25.6 million. My Bloody Valentine 3-D edges Biggie Smalls tribute Notorious for second with a $700,000 advantage.

Finishing out the top five is the children’s film Hotel for Dogs, which earned $22.9 million.

Not one film in the top five this weekend grossed any less than $20 million. That’d be fine in my account any day, so the execs must be loving it!

Sorry for the late update, it’s been a crazy week here at HQ!

This weekend’s top five were a variety of movies and genres, from number one being Vince Vaghn’s Four Chistmases to James Bond in Quantum of Solace.

Bolt, a story involving an animated dog who thinks he’s a superhero opens in second place, Australia remains in the top five through its second week of release.

Twilight remains in the top five with another big weekend box office. Overall all the films in the top five grossed over $10 million, signifying that more people are going out to the theaters as the holiday season progresses.

I look forward to what a rerelease of The Dark Knight into theaters will make – stay tuned!

I also hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving weekend!
