Another ‘Focker’ of a box office weekend

The commercially underwhelming comedy “Little Fockers” narrowly retained its lead at the North American box office during the holiday weekend as Hollywood's prolonged slump spilled over into the new year.

The commercially underwhelming comedy “Little Fockers” narrowly retained its lead at the North American box office during the holiday weekend as Hollywood's prolonged slump spilled over into the new year.

According to studio estimates issued yesterday, “Little Fockers” earned $26.3 million during the three days beginning December 31, followed by “True Grit” with $24.5 million and “Tron: Legacy” with $18.3 million. The movies, all either sequels or remakes, were unchanged in rank from last weekend.

“Little Fockers,” the third entry in the dueling in-laws franchise starring Ben Stiller and Robert De Niro, has earned $103.2 million after 12 days. Its predecessor, “Meet the Fockers,” released six years earlier, had pulled in almost $163 million after the same period.

The Western remake “True Grit,” one of the few hits of the holiday season, has earned $86.8 million.
