tron legacy box office 2 Box Office: 'Tron: Legacy' tops tepid weekend

“Tron: Legacy” easily takes top spot at the weekend box office race with its $43.6 million haul, but given all the hype and estimated budget, it still might not be a “win.”

]]>reports “Tron’s” budget at around $150 million, with another $120 million spent on marketing. The fan interest in the long-delayed sequel will have to carry long past the holidays if it has any hope of recouping. But things could be worse. Reese Witherspoon‘s “How Do You Know” stumbled out of the gate, loosing what little steam it had on Friday and entering at #8 with just $7.6 million. The weekend’s other big new entry, “Yogi Bear,” landed safely in the runner-up spot with $16.7 million, ahead of last weekend’s winner, “The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader.” The full weekend box office: 1. “Tron: Legacy” – $43.6M
2. “Yogi Bear” – $16.7M
3. “The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader” – $12.4M
4. “The Fighter” – $12.2M
5. “The Tourist” – $8.7M
6. “Tangled” – $8.67M
7. “Black Swan” – $8.3M
8. “How Do You Know” – $7.6M
