'Little Fockers' Barely Fends Off 'True Grit'

on January 02, 2011 by Phil Contrino

According to studio estimates, Little Fockers is on pace for $26.3 million during its sophomore frame. While the comedy is not going to be as successful as its predecessors, it's still holding up well.

True Grit is a pleasant surprise during a mostly disappointing holiday season, and it almost took the #1 spot away from Little Fockers this weekend. After only two weekends in theaters, the Western has easily topped No Country For Old Men as the most successful domestic earner from the Coen Brothers. No Country raked in $74.3 million during its entire domestic run.

2010's estimated domestic total now stands at around $10.508 billion. That's a .9% decrease from 2010's total of $10.605 billion. Attendance is down around 5.3%. Final figures will be released this week.

Check back tomorrow for weekend actuals.
