Avatar first film to Pass $700 Million in North America

March 2nd, 2010

Avatar grossed $14 million at the North American box office this past weekend. Avatar has now passed the $700 million mark at the domestic box office. That’s a first, though Avatar still trails a number of other movies in terms of ticket sales. Avatar’s total gross currently stands at $706.9 million. That’s $106 million more than the old record holder – Titanic – who stopped at $601 million domestic.

Overseas, Avatar remained at the top of the box-office charts for the 11th consecutive weekend, taking in $36.1 million at 6,535 screens in 70 territories. Its worldwide total is a staggering $2.550 billion. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Avatar’s top market this weekend was Japan ($4 million), though France remains the top market overall, with a total of $169 million to date.

Next weekend, Avatar will likely suffer a significant box-office drop in North America and in most other top film markets, as Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland will be replacing it at numerous IMAX and 3D theaters. However, Fox is reportedly planning to rerelease the film later this year.

Avatar tops Titanic domestic Box Office record

February 4th, 2010

So the day has finally arrived, Avatar passed Titanic at the North American Box Office all time list. This is a feat that was thought almost impossible just a few months ago, but Avatar ignores all the rules that normally apply at the Box Office.

Avatar still tops the daily and weekly Box Office as well, so the final tally for Avatar is still to be seen. Avatar just got 9 Oscar nominations, that should give Avatar another boost. If Avatar wins some Oscars (which it will), that will be another boost. Just the fact that it passed Titanic will be a boost in itself.

Conclusion -  Avatar still have a lot of earning power left. $700+ million at the North American Box Office wouldn’t surprise me.

2 Titanic $600,788,188 1997

Avatar tops Box Office for SIXTH consecutive weekend

January 25th, 2010


Avatar tops Box Office for sixth consecutive weekend as it earned $36 million. Avatar is only the second film in history to reign the Box Office for this long, guess what other film has accomplished this – yep, that’s right – Titanic.

Up until now we have compared Avatar to Titanic’s performance, soon however, Avatar will cruise on new water. Avatar now stands at a total of $552.8 million in North America, only $49 million shy of Titanic’s total  gross. Avatar has now also passed The Dark Knight at the North American Box Office and only has Titanic in front of it.

International figures are lagging a bit in reporting Box Office figures, but you can soon expect reports that Avatar has taken over the number one spot on the World Wide Box Office gross list. And soon after that there will be reported that Avatar became the first movie in history to gross $2+ billion.

Avatar tops Box Office for fifth straight weekend

January 17th, 2010


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
