  Jennifer Aniston finally confronted her ex-husband Brad Pitt.


  During Christmas, the comedy Marley and I starring Aniston was released in North America, which happened to coincide with Pete’s new film "Rejuvenation". In the end, Aniston’s sweet revenge, "Marley and I" became the top box office winner in North America last weekend with 37 million dollars, while "Rejuvenation" ranked third with 27 million dollars.


  It is reported that on Christmas Day, a total of five new films premiered, which is rare in Hollywood history. In addition to the comedy Marley and Me produced by Fox Pictures and the fantasy film Rejuvenation produced by Paramount, there are also Disney’s family adventure film Bedtime Story, MGM’s historical film Assassination of Hitler and Lionsgate’s action film Ghost.


  In the economic downturn, the box office appeal of comedies is once again highlighted. After Mr. Nice Guy starring Jim Carrey topped the box office list the week before, the comedy film Marley and I once again verified the law that comedy is an evergreen tree at the box office last weekend. It is worth mentioning that "Marley and I" earned $14.68 million on Christmas Day, breaking the Christmas box office record of $10.2 million set by the biopic "Muhammad Ali" in 2001.


  Marley and I is based on American best-selling novels, starring owen wilson and Jennifer Aniston. The film tells the true story between man and dog: Marley, a Labrador adopted by a young couple, causes trouble everywhere, but Marley’s kind and loyal nature makes his owner experience the true meaning of life.


  The adventure film "Bedtime Story" followed closely, ranking second in the box office list last weekend with $28 million. The film tells the story that Skeeter, the protagonist, made up some fairy tales to put his nephew and niece to sleep, and these short stories were fulfilled one by one.


  Although the film "Rejuvenation" starring Pete ranked third, it has a good reputation and is considered as a popular film in the 81st Oscar. The historical film "Assassination of Hitler" starring the famous movie star Tom Cruise ranked fourth at the box office with $21 million. Based on the historical facts of World War II, the film tells the tragic story that German army officers were killed after the attempted assassination of Hitler. Tom Cruise plays the hero who attempts to assassinate Hitler in the film, and critics think that his superstar’s brilliance overshadows his role, thus affecting the box office performance.
