What is at the top of the weekend box office?

The first time I heard of this weekend's first-place movie, "The Devil Inside," was when I was looking at this weekend's box office numbers. I don't do a very good job at getting to the movie theater ...

Also, "New Year's Eve"? What are you still doing in the top 10????
