And only four comedies have made the cut, but it seems that the ones are still in the Top 20 are holding steady, as each one has been in the charts for a while now. See below for yourself!

Number 7: The Descendants

At Number 16 last week, Alexander Payne’s new movie starring George Clooney seems to have received a massive publicity boost thanks to the Golden Globe Awards and the Oscar nominations. Kudos to them, brilliant news!

After winning a Golden Globe for his role in The Descendants...George is avoiding the paparazzi!

Number 12: The Artist

The Artist on the other is still having trouble breaking into completely mainstream America. Moving up only 5 places from 17 last week to 12, it will probably take an actual Oscar win to bring into the Top 5 or Top 10.

The cast in The Artist are still adjusting to fame...it is probably one of the most successful silent, black and white film in decades!

Number 19: Alvin and the Chipmunks

Even though this franchise has dropped 6 places it is still within the Top 20, and is proving a huge cash cow for Fox. The film has already grossed $127 million in the US alone. Prepare yourself for the next instalment!

Number 20: We Bought a Zoo

Cameron Crowe’s latest offering is proving disappointing at the box office, grossing just over $86 million worldwide, albeit with a number of new markets yet to open. With an all-star cast and A-List director and a budget of $50 million, you would have thought that would have been enough to guarantee huge box office returns. Sadly, audiences just don’t seem to be warming to the film as much as the studio would have liked!
