Roland Emmerich has done it again with his recent end-of-the-world, disaster flick ‘2012.’  Over the weekend, the film grossed an estimate of $65 million.  This follows the success of Emmerich’s past disaster films ‘The Day After Tomorrow’ and ‘Independende Day.’ 

Meanwhile, A Christmas Carol grossed $22.3 million during its second weekend.  The Men Who Stare At Goats barely secured the third spot with $6.2 million. 

Securing the fourth spot was Precious: Based on the Novel “Push” by Sapphire.  Expanding from 18 to 174 theaters, the film grossed $6.1 million, which is the second-highest grossing weekend for a movie playing in less than 200 sites (Paranormal Activity is first). 

Rounding out the Top 5 was Michael Jackson’s This Is It grossing $5.1 million.

Check back next weekend when three new releases hit the theaters:  the highly anticipated Twilight sequel ‘New Moon’, the animated family film ‘Planet 51’ and the Sandra Bullock sports drama ‘The Blind Side.’
