All four at the top are new releases, but “Black Swan” will cross $100 million tomorrow or Tuesday, “The King’s Speech” will get there next weekend, and “True Grit” is at $160 million and climbing.

    The King Speech’s momentum is astounding. So much for the claim about being a snobby, elitist Brit movie made only for Oscar voters. America gets it and loves it. Looking forward to a massive sweep, including the best supporting actor/actress categories.

    Amazing stuff.

    -Sandler/Aniston still have it.

    -Bieber trumps Miley Cyrus, bigtime (her movie years ago).

    -The King’s Speech barely dropped from last week (yet lost 300 theaters).

    -True Grit, over 160 and counting, incredible.

    -Black Swan will cross $100 mill in the next 2 days, with a 3-day weekend next weekend and Oscar bump the next.

    -The Fighter could get to $90 mill domestic, awesome.

    -Portmania continues as No Strings Attached is still doing so well.

    Desplat just won best original music for The King’s Speech. Are we going to have a proper BAFTA post???????

    The fact that True Grit will pass Clash of the Titans and may well end up being the top Jeff Bridges film of 2010 is simply astounding and hysterical! Props to the Coens and company!

    Wow, The Green Hornet was a quiet $100 million.

    I think there’s something wrong with these numbers. First of all, it has the Justin Beaver flick below the Sandler one even though it grossed more. And there’s no way “The Roommate” has $93 mil when it only made $15 mil or so last weekend.

    Yeah, just noticing that, English. Looks like they didn’t move the TKS number and left it for The Roommate.

    “-Bieber trumps Miley Cyrus, bigtime (her movie years ago).”

    Not a fan of either, but you need to get your facts straight. Cyrus’ concert movie grossed a bit higher than Bieber’s film (a couple hundred thousand more) and managed to do so in only 683 theaters (compared to the 3000+ for Bieber).

    ANYWAYS, great stuff for some of the Best Picture nominees. Who would’ve thought that The Social Network would make less than King’s Speech, Black Swan, and True Grit?

    I would just like to point out, as a Canadian, that while Justin Bieber did originate here, it was Americans that decided to give him a record contract.

    Continued strong performance from the BP contenders.

    RyanT, my bad … totally. I must be mixing Cyrus up with some other popular female teen from years back. Maybe Hilary Duff? Not sure, now.

    @ Marshall1

    I’d rather they go see Adam Sandler than a Jennifer Ani(Stoneface) film.

    This is actually Adam sandler’s best movie ever — so hilariously funny and not because of any typical potty humor. It’s about a lie that gets out of control. I’m amazed at how funny it was — people actually clapped at the end. Great movie. And cinemascore gave it an A. No strings attached is a great movie as well.

    It’s his best movie? Really? Better than “Punch-Drunk Love?”
