The Sandra Bullock starring feel-good film The Blind Side finally managed to overtake New Moon at the box office in its third week in theaters. The Twilight Saga: New Moon dropped to second place from last weekend, with $15.7 million in ticket sales.
The Blind Side surged to the number one spot in the box office, raking in $20.4 million in sales. The film opened at the number 2 spot against New Moon, but has now overtaken the blockbuster vampire sequel. Not a big deal for Summit Entertainment, however, considering New Moon has already stacked up a total gross of over $245 million.
Brothers, starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Tobey Maguire, crept into third place at the box office, bringing in only $9.7 million. Heist thriller Armored stumbled into fourth place, while the John Travolta and Robin Williams comedy Old Dog rounded out the top five.
