Scorsese, Payne poised for nice runs

"Hugo," 'The Descendants" Hold Up

"Twilight" won again at the box office, but's its numbers are dropping fast -- "The Muppets" is also plummeting. Both lost about 60 percent of their holiday weekend audience.

The best holdovers are Martin Scorsese's "Hugo," which dropped only 33 percent, and Alexander Payne's 'The Descendants," which dropped only 34 percent. Both movies gained theaters. We're also seeing expanded, late-season runs for "Moneyball," "Midnight In Paris," and "The Ides of March," in case you missed them the first time around.

New this week: Jonah Hill's "The Sitter," and Garry Marshall's ensemble comedy "New Year's Eve," sequel of sorts to "Valentine's Day." At the Ritz complex -- "Shame," the sex addiction drama starring Michael Fassbender, also "Tomboy," "A Warrior's Heart," and "Young Goethe in Love."
