Friday’s box office results confirm that this will indeed turn out to be the slow weekend that many predicted–especially for the biggest new movie in theaters, Punisher: War Zone (No. 6), which banked a mere $1.7 mil on its opening day. That being the case, the rankings are essentially unchanged from a week ago, with Four Christmases, Twilight, and Bolt leading the way. Friday’s returns are below, and please check back on Sunday for a full weekend wrapup in the Box Office Report.

1. Four Christmases — $5.8 mil
