According to EW:

New Year’s Eve is time of celebration, as people make their resolutions for the new year and the hopes of people all over the world for a more prosperous and happy New Year… But wait…. That’s the fun to come!  In this case we are getting a little sampling of New Year’s Eve in the movie of the same name!

Now this movie, which stars, Michelle Pfeiffer (I Am Sam), Robert De Niro (Midnight Run), Halle Berry (X-Men), Alyssa Milano (Fear), Cary Elwes (Saw) along with many other great celebrities tells the story of how several people’s lives end up intertwined during New Years Eve!

At number 2 we got another weekend opener in the movie, The Sitter!
