New York: ‘Little Fockers,’ the third instalment of the Ben Stiller, Robert De Niro in-law comedy series, topped the holiday Box Office with USD 30.8 million over the weekend.

The Coen brothers` ‘True Grit’ opened with a better-than-expected USD 25.6 million during the Christmas weekend.

Final figures on Monday were several million less than Sunday estimates, as studios may have had their figures altered due to the blizzard in the Northeast. Warner Bros., Paramount and Sony still declined to issue final numbers Monday.
