Coens topple 'Fockers' at US box office

By
True Grit
The Coen brothers' latest film True Grit managed to climb to the top of the US box office, in what was a relatively quiet weekend for the film industry.

True Grit took $15 million, beating out Little Fockers, which took only $13.8 million, resulting in the two films trading places this week.

Nicholas Cage's latest film Season Of The Witch was the highest new entry, taking only $10.7 million for its opening weekend.

Tron: Legacy falls to fourth this week, taking $9.8 million, followed by Natalie Portman's sleeper hit Black Swan which took $8.4 million.

Gwyneth Paltrow's Country Strong took a modest $7.3 million for its nationwide release.
