Tron Legacy Leads Weak Pre-Christmas Weekend

The highly anticipated movie event of the year, Tron: Legacy, managed to cough up a decent opening weekend with just above $43 million... Good, but not nearly as enough as the hype led you to believe, and not even close to Avatar's $77 million, which debuted on the same weekend last year.

As for Yogi Bear, he should have got a bigger "pic-a-nic basket" (sorry just had to) as it will have a tough time making it's money back even though it debuted in second with about $16 million.

How do You Know, well... I just learned it cost roughly around $120 million. What!!!?? (Well, it'll be down to $100 million after tax rebates). Yes, supposedly it was a long shoot and all the actors involved - that was pretty much half the budget. Ouch! El Floppo.
