(AP) James Bond is in a box-office photo finish with Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny.


According to studio estimates Sunday, the Bond tale Skyfall took in $11 million to move back to No. 1 in its fifth weekend.


That puts it narrowly ahead of 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 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 No. 3 with Lincoln, which was close behind with $9.1 million.


The only new wide release, Gerard Butler's romantic comedy Playing for Keeps, flopped with $6 million, coming in at No. 6.
