Twilight, Skyfall remain top picks

Los Angeles - The Twilight finale and Skyfall continue to dominate the box office on a typically slow post-Thanksgiving holiday weekend.
Sunday studio estimates put The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 ahead for the third-straight weekend with $17.4m in the US.
That raises the vampire tale's domestic total to $254.6m.
But the James Bond adventure Skyfall was a fraction behind with $17m over its fourth weekend, lifting its domestic cash haul to $246m.
The two movies were close enough that rankings could flip-flop when final numbers are released on Monday.
Worldwide, the Twilight finale has taken in $702.4m, just $10m shy of the franchise's record.
Skyfall already is the top-grossing Bond flick ever, approaching $900m worldwide.
Brad Pitt's crime story Killing Them Softly tanked with a $7m debut.
