Box office: 'The Twilight Saga: New Moon' crosses $200 million mark

After briefly slipping out of first place on Thanksgiving, The Twilight Saga: New Moon rose again on Friday with $17.9 million, bringing its total to $206.1 million. After just eight days in theaters, the sequel has already surpassed the $192.8 million earned last year by its predecessor during its entire theatrical run. Meanwhile, Sandra Bullock’s week-old football drama The Blind Side had its best day yet on Friday, raking in $16.2 million for a $76.3 million total. That beats the pace of Bullock’s summer hit The Proposal, which had only made $56.7 million of its eventual $164 million haul by its eighth day. Check back tomorrow for a full recap of the weekend box office.
