Who would have ever thought that Sandra Bullock could give Edward Cullen and Bella Swan such a run for their money? The reputable actress' latest film has given the supernatural romantic pairing more trouble than Jacob Black ever could as "The Blind Side" beat "The Twilight Saga: New Moon" at the box office on Friday evening.
"The Blind Side" and "New Moon" have been neck-and-neck for quite a while now, which is pretty surprising considering the record-breaking success of the vampire romance franchise. Last week, "The Blind Side" was able to take first place on Thanksgiving day, a victory that was repeated on Wednesday of this past week and, of course, last evening when Bullock's family drama surpassed "New Moon" $6.8 million to $5.2 million.
While first and second place were claimed by "The Blind Side" and "New Moon's" continued rivalry, third place went to one of the weekend's new releases, "Brothers."
