December 12th, 2011 8:49am EST
New Year's Eve
Star-studded romantic comedy "New Year's Eve" has crawled to the top of the box office chart in the slowest weekend of ticket sales in three years.

The movie, starring Robert De Niro, Halle Berry, Michelle Pfeiffer, Zac Efron, Ashton Kutcher and Katherine Heigl, grossed a weak $13.7 million in its opening weekend - a stark contrast to director Garry Marshall's last hit, 2010's "Valentine's Day," which also featured an ensemble cast and debuted with a healthy $56.3 million.

Jonah Hill's new funny film "The Sitter" opened in second with a lacklustre $10 million.

Jon Bon Jovi
Jon Bon Jovi has been confirmed as the latest star to join Valentine's Day follow-up New Year's Eve - just weeks after he cast doubt on ever reviving his acting career.

The Bon Jovi frontman admitted in an interview last month he had little desire to step in front of the camera again, following roles in Pay It Forward and Moonlight and Valentino.

He told Larry King, "(Acting is) so far down the list of things to do these days, because the music has been so great. I've got other philanthropic actions and business stuff going on. So it's not that appealing."
