"The Blind Side" had been the No. 2 movie for the previous two weekends but has hung on with great fan buzz. The film stars Sandra Bullock as a woman whose family adopts homeless teen Michael Oher, now a rookie tackle for the Baltimore Ravens.

"New Moon" still is far ahead in total gross with $255.6 million domestically, compared to $129.3 million for "The Blind Side."
