As I'm sure everyone has heard by now, the newest Twilight film made CRAZY money over the weekend. The Blind Side made a pretty respectable showing as well, though still taking a distant second. Here's the top five:

1. The Twilight Saga: New Moon: $142.8 million
The Blind Side: $34.1 million
2012: $26.4 million
Planet 51: $12.29 million
A Christmas Carol: $12.28 million

This weeks new releases offer one part action to one part comedy, plus we have a kids film going into wider release.

Ninja Assassin
What's It All About:
A skilled assassin swears vengeance on the secret order that trained him after they murder his friend.
Why It Might Do Well: This is produced by the Wachowskis, the team behind the Matrix films, so I imagine the martial arts action will be something to behold.
Why It Might Not Do Well: A lack of star power may be a problem.
Number of Theaters: 2,500
Prediction: $10 million

Old Dogs
What's It All About: Robin Williams plays a middle aged man who suddenly finds out that he has six-year-old twins with a woman he hasn't seen in years, and his bachelor buddy John Travolta helps him adjust to life as a father.
Why It Might Do Well:

Why It Might Not Do Well:
I suspect that gorilla gag may be all the film has to offer, as the film is only getting 10% over at
Number of Theaters: 3,300
Prediction: $32 million
