On a weekend when Hollywood competed with Christmas gatherings and fierce snow storms in the Northeast and Southeast, “Little Fockers” was no. 1 at the box office.
The third installment of the Ben Stiller, Robert De Niro series of in-law comedy was to earn $34 million over the three-day weekend, and $48.3 million since opening on Wednesday, according to studio estimates Sunday. That was less than the debut of the 2004 sequel, “Meet the Fockers,” which opened to $46.1 million, but more than the original, “Meet the Parents,” which made $28.6 million in its opening weekend.
