Box Office Beat: Crazy In-Laws Take The Cake

Audiences must really be in the holiday spirit, as Reese Witherspoon and Vince Vaughn held the top spot at the movies for the second weekend in a row, beating sexy vampires, Australian cowboys and Bond. Four Christmases‘ success proves the often-told tale of family stress and a full schedule around the holidays doesn’t get old. See a clip above of Vaughn being outed by his rowdy brothers, revealing to Witherspoon his birth name is “Orlando.”

1. Four Christmases: $18.2M
2. Twilight: $13.2M
3. Bolt: $9.7M
4. Australia: $7M
5. Quantum of Solace: $6.6M

On the coattails of Beyonce‘s “Single Ladies” sensation, we were somewhat surprised to see Cadillac Records roll in at #9 with a meager $3.5M. Check out a clip of Ms. Knowles singing as Etta James after the jump.

Bond Girls: New vs. Old

Two new Bond girls are set to steam up theaters with today’s opening of Quantum of Solace: Ukranian-born Olga Kurylenko, Daniel Craig‘s stunning sidekick; and Gemma Arterton, a British operative. You can bet that Bond will need to add notches to his bedpost for both Olga and Gemma — just like he did for Halle Berry, Eva Green, Denise Richards and countless others.

Browse photos of Bond girls below and then let us know how his new babes stack up against his exes.


Meet Bond’s New Girls: Olga And Gemma

Olga Kurylenko, 28, and Gemma Arterton, 22, aren’t household names yet, but you’ll be seeing a lot more of them when the new James Bond flick Quantum of Solace hits theaters Nov. 14. A sequel to the excellent Casino Royale, the movie had its premiere opening last week in London – and both girls apparently looked so come-hither that Princes William and Harry couldn’t help but use their Royal Charm to chat them up.

In Quantum, Olga plays Daniel Craig‘s seductive sidekick Camille, who is — surprise! — ravaged by him in a graphic sex scene (warning: clip NSFW). According to early reviews, the Ukranian-born model-turned-actress is one of the highlights of the movie. Gemma, an English actress who will star opposite Jake Gyllenhaal in the Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, plays a British operative named Miss Fields. We’re guessing she also jumps into the sack with 007. Don’t they all?

How do Olga and Gemma stack up against previous Bond girls like Halle Berry, Eva Green and Jane Seymour? Check the pics and decide for yourself. [Photo: Splash News Online]
