It was a long holiday weekend for Hollywood. Rise of the Guardians and Life of Pi debuted to decent numbers. Hitchcock debuted on only 17 screens to a meager $301,000. Yet it was the Vampires that maintained the number one spot over Bond.

"While Breaking Dawn and Skyfall ranked first and second, respectively, the real all-star of the weekend was third place finisher Lincoln. In its second nationwide outing, the Steven Spielberg political drama was impressively up 19 percent to an estimated $25.02 million ($34.1 million five-day). The movie has already grossed $62.2 million; it's hard to say exactly how it's going to play over the next few weeks, but it does now appear guaranteed to earn over $100 million”. - Ray Subers
