Robert De Niro and Ben Stiller in Little Fockers

Little Fockers has narrowly beaten True Grit to top the US box office this weekend.

Little Fockers underperformed greatly, taking in only $34 million over the weekend, bringing its five-day total to $48 million. According to Entertainment Weekly, it is unlikely that the third film in the Meet the Parents series will come close to matching the $279.3 million total of 2004’s Meet the Fockers.

Meanwhile, True Grit, which stars Jeff Bridges and Matt Damon, took in double the studio’s original estimate, earning $25.6 million and claiming second place at the US box office. Bridges’s other movie Tron: Legacy fell from first to third place, bringing its total to $88.4 million.

Finally, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader took fourth place, earning $10.8 million, while Yogi Bear fell from second to fifth place, grossing $8.8 million over the weekend, bringing its total to $36.8 million.

The weekend’s other new release, Jack Black’s Gulliver’s Travels, took in only $7.2 million, opening in seventh place.
