Avatar Dominates for Third Weekend in a row
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
It shouldn’t be surprising, given the fact that AVATAR has a few great movie reviews and some obvious staying power, but AVATAR managed to take the top spot at the box office again this week. I guess the few negative critics out there aren’t being heard after all. I, for one, think everyone should go see AVATAR in 3D Imax, but that’s just me. The film lost almost nothing compared to last week and I think we can start opening the discussion on whether or not it will beat TITANIC’s all time record. It’s at $352.1 million right now.
So AVATAR was the clear winner, but there are other stories in the top ten as well. Sandra Bullock and THE BLIND SIDE continue to rake in dough, long after NEW MOON fell out of the top 10. And does anyone else feel a little sorry for NINE? I mean, more people saw DID YOU HEAR ABOUT THE MORGANS than NINE over the weekend. Something about that is just plain wrong.
1. Avatar $68.3
