Early estimates for the first Friday in December are in and it looks like more good news for Sandra Bullock and The Blind Side. In its third Friday in theatres, the modestly-budgeted football drama flattened its competitors, including some little teen flick called New Moon. True, the competition isn’t all that stiff on the Friday following Thanksgiving, but the fact that Blind Side just keeps defying the odds is sort of heartwarming. Someone should make a movie about it. New Moon, meanwhile, isn’t exactly wallowing in second place. The super-successful sequel is cruising past the $250 million mark right about… now! As expected, new releases Brothers and Armored did not make big entrances on Friday, coming in third and fourth respectively. Full details on all of this week’s releases when you check back here tomorrow.

Title Friday Total
1 The Blind Side $6,800,000 $115.6
2 New Moon $5,200,000 $245.1
3 Brothers $3,570,000 $3.5
4 Armored $2,400,000 $2.4
5 Ninja Assassin $1,700,000 $26.4
