James Bond is in a box-office photo finish with Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny over what looks to be the last slow weekend of the holiday movie season.

According to studio estimates Sunday, Sony's Bond tale Skyfall took in $11 million to move back to number one in its fifth weekend. That put it narrowly ahead of Paramount's Rise of the Guardians, the animated adventure of Santa, the Easter Bunny and other mythological heroes, that pulled in $10.5 million.

The two movies inched ahead of Summit Entertainment's The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2, which had been tops for three-straight weekends. The Twilight finale earned $9.2 million, slipping into a tight race for third spot with Disney's Lincoln, which was close behind with $9.1 million. »
