(Newser) Enchanted charmed moviegoers out of $50 million this weekend, one of the best turkey weekend scores ever, Variety reports. Its magic veiled a strong debut by Sony-Screen Gems’ This Christmas, which banked $27.1 million. Newcomers August Rush and The Mist fizzled in seventh and eighth, respectively.

Beowulf conquered the number three spot with $23.3 million in its second week, as Hitman nabbed fourth, banking $21 million. Bee Movie kept buzzing in fifth‚ breaking $100 million in its fourth week. Miramax’s No Country for Old Men took tenth with $11 million, getting a wider 860-screen release over the holiday weekend.
