Disney's long anticipated sequel of the 1982 sleeper hit ‘Tron’ took the top spot at this weekend’s box office.  "Tron: Legacy" took in an estimated $43.6 million on its opening weekend.

Second place went to that loveable, picnic basket thief "Yogi Bear.”  The Warner Bros. animated film had a rather disappointing debut, earning only $16.7 million.

Last week's box office headliner, "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader," came in third with $12.4 million.  The third installment based on the classic novels by C. S. Lewis has brought in $42.7 million since its opening.

Here are the rest of the weekend numbers estimated by ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to  Final figures will be released Monday.

4. "The Fighter" - $12.2 Million
5. "The Tourist" - $8.7 Million
6. "Tangled" - $8.68 Million
7. "Black Swan" - $8.3 Million
8. "How Do You Know" - $7.6 Million
