New Year's Eve Attracts Few Partygoers at the Box Office
Jon Bon Jovi and Lea Michele
New Year's Eve rang in at No. 1 but with a weak start at the box office, Box Office Mojo reports.
The Garry Marshall film, starring Lea Michele, Ashton Kutcher and Zac Efron among others, grossed an estimated $13.7 million in its opening weekend. That's a far cry from its predecessor, Valentine's Day, which opened to $52.4 million in 2010.
The weekend's other new wide release, The Sitter, grabbed $10 million to take No. 2.
Box office: Breaking Dawn takes top spot for third straight week
After three weeks atop the box office, Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1 fell to third place with $7.9 million, although its total now stands at $259.5 million. At No. 4, The Muppets drew $7.07 million. Arthur Christmas completed the top five with $6.6 million.
Hugo attracted $6.1 million to take sixth place. At No. 7, The Descendants nabbed $4.8 million.
Rounding out the top 10: Happy Feet Two (No. 8, $3.7 million), Jack and Jill (No. 9, $3.2 million) and Immortals (No. 10, $2.4 million).
