(Newser) Four Christmases stayed north of the competition on a typically slow post-Thanksgiving box office weekend with $18.2 million, Entertainment Weekly reports. Twilight ($13.2 million), Bolt ($9.7 million), Australia ($7 million), and Quantum of Solace ($6.6 million) rounded out the top five, but new release Punisher: War Zone got pummeled to eighth place with just $4 million. The only real winner was the much-hyped Frost/Nixon, which netted a $60,049 average in just three advance theaters.
