“The Blind Side” ran right over the competition at the Box Office this weekend. The sports drama even knocked the hugely successful “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” out of the top spot.  “Blind Side,” which stars Sandra Bullock, raked in an estimated $20.4 million to become the number one film in the U.S.

In three weeks, “The Blind Side” has rung up around $129 million at theaters across the country. On the other hand, second place finisher,”New Moon,” earned a staggering $255 million in the same amount of time. This weekend, the romantic fantasy cooled off a bit with a tally of around $15.7 million.

The new film, “Brothers” landed in third with $9.7 million.  The war drama stars Tobey Maguire, Jake Gyllenhaal and Natalie Portman. Maguire plays a traumatized Marine who returns home from Afghanistan and struggles to pick up the pieces of his personal life.

Disney’s “A Christmas Carol” skidded into fourth with $7.5 million, and rounding out the top five the family comedy “Old Dogs” with $6.9 million.
