Still stuffed from all the movies Hollywood was offering over Thanksgiving?  Not to worry.  This weekend will give you a chance to digest some of those titles that got leftover from last weekend’s feast.  As usual, the Friday after the holiday saw no new wide releases; which means that (also as usual) this should prove to be one of the lowest grossing weekends of the year.  The good news for Twilight fans is that the lack of competition will allow Breaking Dawn Part 1 to claim a third weekend at number one: a feat that Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 could not match one year ago.  The only notable news coming from the multiplex is the increased theatre counts for both Hugo and The Descendants.  We’ll have details (insignificant though they may be) tomorrow.

Title Friday Total
1 Breaking Dawn Part 1 $5,500,000 $235.9
2 The Muppets $2,700,000 $48
3 Hugo $2,000,000 $19.5
4 Arthur Christmas $1,700,000 $19.6
5 Jack & Jill $1,600,000 $60.4
