Your other options include The Muppets, Happy Feet Two, Arthur Christmas and Hugo, all of which opened during Thanksgiving week.

Disney's Tangled, which stars Mandy Moore as the voice of princess Rapunzel in the modern take on the classic fairy tale, came in second with an estimated $49.1 million.

Burlesque, the bawdy vehicle for pop stars Christina Aguilera and Cher -- who hasn't appeared on the big screen since 2003 -- survived a critical beating to earn $11.8 million over the weekend.

Also landing in the top 5 was Dreamworks' animated feature Megamind, which brought in $12,850,000 in its third week of release, and the Denzel Washington action film Unstoppable, which took another $11.7 million.
