January 17th, 2010 by admin Leave a reply »


Avatar steams ahead at the Box Office. For the fifth straight weekend Avatar tops the Box Office in North America with $41.3million and has now amassed a total of $492 million in North America alone. Avatar is the first film since 1999’s The Six Sense to top the Box Office for five straight weeks.

It looks more and more certain that Avatar eventually will beat Titanic’s record of $600.8 millions at the North American Box Office. The current no.2,  The Dark Knight, stands at $533.3 million and will probably be passed by Avatar next weekend.

1 Avatar Fox $41,300,000 $491,767,000
2 The Book of Eli WB $31,615,000 $31,615,000
3 The Lovely Bones P/DW $17,060,000 $17,527,000
4 Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel Fox $11,500,000 $192,592,000
5 Sherlock Holmes WB $9,825,000 $180,018,000

The worldwide gross for Avatar now now stands at $1.602.2 BILLION. Titanic will sink (pun intended) to second place, it’s just a matter of time now.

1 Titanic $1,842.9
2 Avatar $1,602.2
3 The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King $1,119.1
4 Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest $1,066.2
5 The Dark Knight $1,001.9
6 Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone $974.7

    Mark my words, this movie will be in release for at least the next 6 months, and will be the highest grossing film of all time.

    I expect 2.3 billion at least.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if you are right. I don’t know where it will end worldwide, but I’m pretty sure that we soon will have the first $2+ billion movie – Avatar.

    Yes James Cameron is rich but think of all the people that is in this movie Avatar and he would have to pay them all. As this was the best movie I have seen in a long time. Plus I want to see it again and again.
    Thanks Mr. J. Cameron!
