The box office ended the year inauspiciously, down 29 percent from last year’s final weekend. The top film was Universal’s Little Fockers with $25.77 million, putting it past the $100-million mark after 12 days in release. It was down a modest 16 percent from the previous weekend. But the No. 2 film, True Grit, was hardly down at all — less than 2 percent — as it performed above expectations for the second straight week, earning $24.42 million and exceeding Fockers’ per-theater average. Disney’s Tron: Legacy also showed just a 2-percent drop-off from last weekend as it placed third with $18.76 million, nearly a quarter of that revenue coming from IMAX locations.



The top ten films over the weekend, according to final figures compiled by Box Office Mojo (figures in parentheses represent total gross to date):

1. Little Fockers, Universal, $25,766,485, 2 Wks. ($102,576,190); 2. True Grit, Paramount, $24,416,515, 2 Wks. ($86,670,382); 3. Tron: Legacy, Disney, $18,756,973, 3 Wks. ($131,304,844); 4.
