WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: 2012 predictably won the weekend with 65 million in receipts; that's a litlle above the range predicted, and director Roland Emmerich's flicks tend to do very well overseas, justifying the the 200 million budget.  A Christmas Carol dropped only 25 percent with 23.3 million; giving it a shot at recoping its 200 million budget domestically.  The Men Who Stare at Goats held onto the third slot, but dropped 51 percent and took in 6.2 million. The black comedy has almost recouped its 25 million budget, and Overture paid only 5 million for the rights.  Precious - a movie touted by Oprah - leapt from No. 12 to No.4, taking in 6 million on only 174 screens.  Michael Jackson rounds out the Top 5, but This is It tumbled 61 percent to take in another 5.1 million.  Pirate Radio opened near-wide, but debuted at No. 11, which may be disappointing for Focus Features, but maybe not shocking, given its tepid performance overseas (under the title The Boat That Rocked).
