'The Blind Side' Beats 'New Moon' In The Saturday Box Office Report

1. "The Blind Side" ($6.8 million)
2. "The Twilight Saga: New Moon" ($5.2 million)
3. "Brothers" ($3.57 million)
5. "Armored" ($2.4 million)
4. "Old Dogs" ($2.06 million)

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."

The Blind Side hasn't been released in Australia as yet and I haven't heard anything on this movie.
New Moon's release here in Oz blew every other movie out of the water [was there ever any doubt]!

The same site (MTV) was saying that "The Blind Side" was more complementary than rilvary to "New Moon"...

"New Moon" opened to some pretty startling numbers last week. Taking in more than $140 million in three days, the "Twilight" sequel more than doubled the opening weekend performance of its predecessor. Now, just a week and a half later, the "New Moon"'s $230+ million in ticket sales already has the first movie's lifetime gross beat."
Double the opening attendance is certainly good numbers for summit ... not bad takings I say.

Just because Blind Side beat New Moon does not mean it is a better movie. It's just that movie goers are seeing something different - hard to comprehend I know but it happens. Last week my DH and I went to the movies. Same as we did the week before. On the 1st week we both saw New Moon. Last week I saw New Moon again and he went to a showing of 2012 that was close to the same time. Does not mean he likes NM any less - just means he wanted to see something else.

Some people - like me - can watch a movie over and over and love it the last time just as much as the first. Some people can't!

No reason to get panties in a wad here. I think that come Christmas break from schools you will see an increase in viewership because the kids will be able to go more often and they will have money and gift cards to spend.

It's ok people. New Moon made 142 million it's first weekend and was number one for two weeks. We've made 570 million world wide in 16 days ? COME THAT'S AWESOME ! I thought Blind Side was an ok movie but people are watching other movies and that's ok BUT I'M planning to see New Moon at least once every week till it leaves and I hope everyone does too because it's going to be a hard wait for the DVD. We've been in the top three for the last three weekends that's good enough
