Avatar is off with a good start at the box office.

James Cameron’s space fantasy “Avatar” has launched with a solid $27 million opening day at the box office.

Storms in the East likely will hurt the movie’s prospects to approach the December opening weekend record of $77.2 million set by Will Smith’s “I Am Legend.”

“Avatar” did almost as much business Friday as Cameron’s last narrative film, 1997’s “Titanic,” over its entire opening weekend. “Titanic” had a $28.6 million debut weekend, but remained afloat for months at the top of the box office as it took in a record $600 million domestically.
