This weekend, Natalie Portman was able to capitalize on the buzz generated from her Golden Globe win as her new film No Strings Attached opened at number 1 as we predicted. The Green Hornet showed a decent hold coming in at number 2, also as we predicted, dropping less then 50% ,while the The Dilemma fell to number 3.
And now for the rest of the top 10…
With a Golden Globe win for Best Actor (Colin Firth) The King’s Speech climbed to the number 4 spot this weekend, while the Golden Globe shutout True Grit slid to number 5 witnessing a larger then normal weekend decline. With No Strings Attached debuting at number 1, Portman’s other film Black Swan dropped to number 6, coming in slightly below our predictions.
The rest of the top 10 sees a neck to neck finish with Little Fockers coming at number 7, and Golden Globe winner The Fighter at number 8, while Yogi Bear and Tron Legacy finished slightly off from our predictions in regards to final gross and placement.
