Box Score: Tron: Legacy finished first at the weekend box office.

With three new openers and two wide expansions, Disney's Tron: Legacy [TRON2] earned the high score with an estimated $43.6 million.  The sci-fi sequel attracted primarily an older audience that was 66% male, but should open up as the holiday rolls around.

Yogi Bear [YOGIB] finished second with a less than expected $16.7 million. The family audience should bring in more business over the holidays.

Last week's top film The Chornicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader [NARN3] declined 48% in its second weekend to $12.4 million. 

Two awards contenders successfully expanded into wide release.   The Fighter [FITER] came in fourth with $12.2 million, while in seventh place  Black Swan [BLKSW] banked $8.3 million from just 959 theaters. Great word of mouth should boost both films for weeks to come. 

The star-studded How Do you Know [HDYKN] flopped with just $7.6 million.  Poor reviews should send the dramedy into earlt retirement.
