Posted by: Brad Sturdivant

Sniff, sniff…I smell something in the air.  It smells just like a sinking boat, as in TITANIC.  AVATAR must be smelling it too as it managed another $49 million this past weekend, bringing it’s total to $429 million.  That’s good enough for7th all time.  It should easily move to 4th all time, probably before next weekend.  Check out the top 7 of all time below the pic:
