'Tangled' tops a weak post-Thanksgiving box office
In what Box Office Mojo describes as the "least attended post-Thanksgiving weekend since 1997," "Tangled" managed to push "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1" out of the top box office spot. In other news, "Black Swan" is not only racking up rave reviews, but totally owning the indie box office.
A look at some of the weekend's numbers:
1. "Tangled": In its second weekend out, "Tangled" -- the Disney-animated Rapunzel re-imagining -- dropped by 55 percent, but still beat the latest "Harry Potter" installment, which seems to be in a free-fall in its third week. Though at $16 million in box office sales, things could be worse for the wizard and his pals.
2. "Black Swan": Despite only opening on 18 screens nation-wide, Darren Aronofsky's "Black Swan" -- decribed by our own Ann Hornaday as a "alternately lyrical and terrifying thriller" about a possibly psycho ballerina -- danced its way to a very respectable $1.3 million in box office returns.
3. "The Warrior's Way": The only new film to open wide, "Warrior's Way" was officially labeled a "flop" by TheWrap.com. The martial-arts Western made just over $3 million -- which doesn't do much to cover the $42 million production budget.
