After a record-setting Thanksgiving frame, the domestic box office is headed towards its traditional, post-holiday slump. Though weekend receipts should top 2011 levels, there is little to get excited about at the multiplex: no new, major-studio releases and no change in the domestic top three. That means that, for the third straight week, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 will be on top, followed closely by Skyfall, which now ranks as the highest-grossing spy movie in US history. Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln will remain in third place while Rise of the Guardians continues to struggle entering its sophomore frame. Even with its very modest expectations, The Weinstein Co.’s Killing Them Softly is being called a disappointment. On its first day in 2,424 locations, the R-rated film starring Brad Pitt is expected to earn just $7 million over its first three days. We’ll have full details tomorrow.

Title Friday Total
1. Breaking Dawn Part 2 $5,610,000 $242.7
2. Skyfall $4,880,000 $233.9
3. Lincoln $4,040,000 $74.2
4. Life of Pi $3,300,000 $39.6
5. Rise of the Guardians $2,970,000 $38.4

    Killing them Softly was shockingly dull.

    Maybe if Weinstein put it in Toronto with Master and Silver Linings, it wouldn’t have flopped as badly as it did. That might have been the problem, cause outside of Cannes, there wasn’t too much attention on this film.
