`Little Fockers' opens on top

(AP) — On a weekend when Hollywood competed with Christmas gatherings and fierce snow storms in the Northeast and Southeast, Little Fockers was no. 1 at the box office.

The third installment of the Ben Stiller, Robert De Niro series of in-law comedy was to earn $34 million over the three-day weekend,, and $48.3 million since opening on Wednesday.

It was an over-all down weekend for Hollywood, which saw the blockbuster Gulliver’s Travels open Saturday to a weak two-day gross of $7.2 million, and last week’s top film, the 3-D sci-fi sequel Tron: Legacy, fall more than 54 percent to $20.1 million on the weekend, and a total of $88.3 million.

The big success was the Coen Brothers’ True Grit, which was the no. 2 film of the weekend with a better-than-expected $25.6 million, and a five-day gross of $36.8 million.

Following Tron, which came in third, were:

4. The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.

5. Yogi Bear.

6. The Fighter.

7. Gulliver’s Travels.

8. Black Swan.

9. Tangled.

10. The Tourist.
