'New Moon' keeps top box office spot

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA - November 30, 2009

"The Twilight" sequel stays number-one but just barely.

The vampire romance brings in another $42.5 million this weekend.

Its 10-day total is now nearly 231 mil.

Sandra Bullock's football drama nearly tackles New Moon for a loss.

"The Blind Side" is running a close second with just over 40 million for the weekend.

"2012" is third, followed by the comedy "Old Dogs."

Hollywood has much to be thankful for this weekend.

An estimated $278 million worth of tickets were sold over the five-day Thanksgiving period.

Hollywood-dot-com reports that breaks the record set in 2000, when the top draws were "Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas" and "Unbreakable."
