'Twilight,' 'Skyfall' remain top picks for movie fans

(Continued)

A Weinstein Co. release, “Killing Them Softly” averaged just $2,888 in 2,424 theaters, meager results compared to the “Twilight” finale’s average of $4,344 in 4,008 cinemas over its third weekend.

Adapted from George V. Higgins’ novel “Cogan’s Trade,” ‘‘Killing Them Softly” stars Pitt as a gang enforcer on the trail of two small-time crooks who held up a mob-protected card game.

The weekend’s other new wide release, LD Entertainment’s horror tale “The Collection,” also flopped at No. 10 with $3.4 million, averaging $2,430 in 1,403 theaters.
