"Little Fockers" was number one at the box office again this weekend. But it's a slow start for the studios this year.

The Robert DeNiro, Ben Stiller movie with Barbra Streisand and Dustin Hoffman pulled in another $26 million.

Also again this weekend the critically acclaimed "True Grit" is number two. Jeff Bridges and Matt Damon star in the Coen brothers film. And the Coen brothers reached a new level at the box office with the Western. In the two weeks since it opened, ‘True Grit’ became their top grossing film. Their previous box office best was "No Country For Old Men."

Jeff Bridges is starting the year off in the land of plenty. He stars in both the number two and number three movies at the box office. "Tron: Legacy" is third.

Overall revenues this new year’s weekend were down about 28 percent from last year – at that time, the biggest modern blockbuster "Avatar" was out.
