Box Office 1/16/2011

The Green Hornet easily topped the weekend box office.

The superhero comedy, starring Seth Rogen, drew an estimated $34 million in its first weekend. Those estimates were boosted by more expensive 3-D showings, which accounted for 69 percent of the film’s gross.

The Martin Luther King weekend’s other new release, the Vince Vaughn-Kevin James buddy comedy The Dilemma, pulled in roughly $17.4 million.

A trio of awards-season contenders showed strength with audiences as well. Last week’s No. 1 film, True Grit, came in at No. 3 with an estimated $11.2 million — for a four-week total of $126.4 million. Coming in fourth, The King’s Speech attracted $9.1 million. Black Swan followed at No. 5 with $8.1 million.

Little Fockers dropped to sixth place, bringing in $7.1 million for a four-week take of $134.2 million. Tron: Legacy ranked seventh with $5.6 million, which makes its five-week gross $156.9 million.

Rounding out the top 10: Yogi Bear (No. 8, $5.3 million); The Fighter (No. 9, $5.1 million); and Season of the Witch (No. 10, $4.5 million).
