For the second weekend in a row, the Reese Witherspoon-Vince Vaughn romantic comedy Four Christmases held the top position on the U.S. box office tally.

The Seth Gordon-directed feature about a couple who travel to see all four of their divorced parents in the course of one day raked in an estimated $18.1 million over the weekend.

Four Christmases has earned roughly $70 million so far.

Just behind it at #2 is previous box-office champ Twilight. The movie adaptation of Stephanie Meyer's wildly popular novel series about a lonely teenage girl who falls for a vampire at a remote Washington state high school took in another $13 million in its third week of release, bringing its grand total to $138.5 million so far.

The production budgets for Four Christmases and Twilight were $80 million and $37 million, respectively.

In limited release, Cadillac Records, starring Beyoncé as soul legend Etta James, earned $3.5 million on just 686 screens to debut at #6.

But things could get a shaken up a bit next week when the big budget Keanu Reeves-starring remake of sci fi classic The Day The Earth Stood Still hits theaters.
