'True Grit' Passes 'Little Fockers'

on January 08, 2011 by Phil Contrino

According to BoxOffice.com's Early Weekend Estimates, True Grit is on pace for $14.0 million during its third weekend in theaters. That's good enough for a first place finish, and it will easily push the Western past the $100 million domestic mark.

Little Fockers fell to second place. The comedy is set to grab $13.7 million. Little Fockers has no shot at hitting the $200 million domestic plateau like its predecessors.

Oscar contenders continue to do steady business. Black Swan will reach $60 million, which means that the thriller has grossed more than director Darren Aronofsky's first four films combined. The Fighter will end up just shy of $60 million, and The King's Speech is going to cross the $30 million mark without even playing at 1,000 locations.
