    While "The Twilight Saga: New Moon" and "The Blind Side" battled it out in a uncharacteristically female friendly Thanksgiving for studio fare, it was John Hillcoat's "The Road" that was the major story at the specialty box office. With three new specialty films to hit theaters on this very potent Thanksgiving weekend (the overall box office was up 17% over last year), the apocalyptic Cormac McCarthy adaptation grossed $1,522,870 over the three day weekend and $2,000,814 since opening Wednesday, according to estimates provided by Rentrak earlier today.

    Box Office: Almodovar's Best Opener; "Precious" Shines In Shadow of "New Moon" (UPDATED)

    Expanding to 629 screens, this was the weekend for "Precious" to truly prove itself a formidable box office entity. Adding on 455 screens and screening all over the country, it did just that.
