A borderline comatose domestic weekend saw the top three hold firm as the top 10 stayed largely the same. Buena Vista's family release Enchanted remained the champion in its second weekend as an estimated $17m raised the running total to an impressive $70.6m.

Screen Gems' drama This Christmas in second place added $8.4m for $36.9m in its second weekend and Paramount's Beowulf grossed $7.9m for $68.6m in third place after three.

The Weinstein Company's thriller Awake starring Hayden Christensen and Jessica Alba opened through MGM in fourth place on a smidgeon over $6m.

The only other film to break into the top 10 was No Country For Old Men, which returned to the top flight in the fourth weekend as it jumped three places to eighth on $4.5m for $23m.

The top 12 films grossed a combined $76.6m and trailed the comparable weekend in 2006 by 6%.

Fox Searchlight's bittersweet family drama The Savages with Philip Seymour Hoffman and Laura Linney launched in four New York and Los Angeles theatres on very good $153,121. Miramax's French-language The Diving Bell And The Butterfly also opened in limited release and took $75,300 from three theatres.

Box office is likely to receive a jab in the arm next weekend when New Line releases its fantasy adventure The Golden Compass starring Nicole Kidman, Daniel Craig and Dakota Blue Richards.
