The Muppets [MUPET] successfully made its comeback with an estimated $42.0 million over the long weekend.  The film played to all four quadrants as the audience was split evenly between males and females, while 54% was under the age of 25.

Happy Feet Two [HPYF2] slipped a spot down to third  with $18.4 million.  The sequel declined 37% when comparing the 3-day portion of the weekend against its opening.

Arthur Christmas [ARTHC] opened in fourth place with $17.0 million over the holiday weekend.  The animated film attracted a surprisingly older crowd with 69% over the age of 25.
