Weekend Box Office Recap


"New Moon" gets blindsided as the sparkly emo vamps drop 63% from their previous weekend numbers to fall to second place. "New Moon" also takes the prize as the biggest percentage loser for a second week in a row. Expect the fall for the vamp story to continue to plummet.

"The Blind Side," meanwhile climbs to the number one spot, eclipsing New Moon by almost $5 million.
