‘Tron: Legacy’ is #1 at the box office!

'Tron: Legacy' is #1 at the box office!

With an impressive per theater average of more than $12,000, “Tron: Legacy” was easily the number one movie at the box office, earning $43.60 million overall for distributor Buena Vista/Disney. The other three new titles were not as fortunate, however, as “How Do You Know,” “Yogi Bear” and “The Fighter” all made less than $5,000 per venue and struggled to reach their target demographics.

With Jeff Bridges leading the cast and a very strong marketing campaign from Buena Vista, “Tron: Legacy” seemed to be in great shape heading into the weekend. Without much competition for action audiences, the $170 million production had its target audience mostly to itself, which translated to a very nice opening for December.

Though a $43 million opening weekend isn’t close to the top blockbusters of the year, we’re also just entering a very lucrative holiday period for the box office. Last year, “Avatar,” “Sherlock Holmes,” “It’s Complicated” and “Alvin and the Chipmunks: the Squeakquel” all had very impressive runs over Christmas, which should be the case for “Tron: Legacy” as well. With a couple more strong weekends, “Tron: Legacy” should soar past $100 million domestically and post nice foreign totals as well.

1. Tron: Legacy (Buena Vista): $43.60 [$45]

2. Yogi Bear (Warner Brothers): $16.71 [$18]

3. The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (Fox): $12.40 [$13]

4. The Fighter (Paramount): $12.20 [$14]

5. The Tourist (Sony/Columbia): $8.70 [$9]

6. Tangled (Buena Vista): $8.68 [$7.7]

7. Black Swan (Fox Searchlight): $8.30 [$10]

8. How Do You Know (Sony/Columbia): $7.60 [$13.5]

9. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part One (Warner Brothers): $4.85 [$4.7]

10. Unstoppable (Fox): $1.8
