New Year's Eve

This weekend's box office numbers were pretty tepid. Breaking Dawn fever is finally cooling down and nothing else really caught fire with the public this weekend.

New Year's Eve was a modest No. 1, with The Sitter coming in second.

Shame continues do do well in its limited opening making, to date, $771,000 on just 21 screens, and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (which is without question one of my favorite films of the year, along with Shame and Pariah) is doing very well, making over $300,000 on just 4 screens so far.
