Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie, The Tourist

Columbia Pictures

Little Fockers won the weekend again. True Grit won second place again. Hollywood missed Avatar again. 

For surprising box-office news you had to look to—surprise!—The Tourist.

The $100 million Angelina Jolie-Johnny Depp "bomb" hit $120 million worldwide.


And the Golden Globe-nominated comedy (or musical) ain't done yet, even as it fell out of the domestic Top 10 after a brief three-weekend stay. Expectations were that when all is said and grossed, The Tourist could reach $200 million worldwide.

Elsewhere, Ben Stiller's and Robert De Niro's Little Fockers broke $100 million domestically, and managed to edge Jeff Bridges—twice.

Bridges' truly gritty True Grit had a fantastic second weekend, while Bridges' $170 million Tron: Legacy upped its worldwide take to $241 million.

Oscar hopeful The King's Speech finally cracked the Top 10; Ryan Gosling's and Michelle Williams' Oscar vehicle Blue Valentine finally opened—and how—grossing $180,066 off just four screens.

Overall, it was another down box-office weekend for Hollywood, as the industry continued to lack for a certain James Cameron powerhouse
