The four films that topped the Christmas holiday weekend, repeated over the New Year's weekend, final figures released by Media by Numbers revealed on Monday. Each of the films showed a relatively small decline in ticket sales from the earlier weekend, with 20th Century Fox's Marley & Me landing in first place with $24.3 million, a drop of 33 percent from the previous week. Bedtime Stories from Disney placed second with $20.5 million, a drop of just 25 percent. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button , which few had predicted would wind up as a box-office hit, placed third with $18.7 million, a drop of 30 percent. And Valkyrie, which gossip columnists had frequently attacked prior to its opening, took in a solid $14.1 million, a drop of 33 percent. Overall, the top-12 films at the box office grossed $131.15 million, versus $121.2 million for the top 12 during the same weekend a year ago -- an increase of 8.21 percent.
