Box Office Results: Is Avatar the biggest movie of all-time?

Studio Estimates for Jan. 1-3:

1.  Avatar – $68.3 million
2.  Sherlock Holmes – $38.4 million
3.  Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel – $36.6 million
4.  It’s Complicated – $18.7 million
5.  The Blind Side – $12.7 million

Happy New Year!  Sorry I didn’t get to post my box office predictions this past weekend… things were a bit hectic at the least.  Anyway, if you haven’t heard already the big news of the New Year is Avatar.  In its third weekend, Avatar grossed a whopping $68.3 million.  With that number, the huge blockbuster is breaking more records:  it now has the highest-grossing third weekend ever and the highest-grossing New Year’s weekend ever.

Also, in only three weeks of its release, Avatar has already climbed up to the 15th highest-grossing film of all time with about #352 million.  It also is now the 4th highest grossing worldwide film of all-time, recently passing The Dark Knight.  With over $1 billion already grossed, it’s only $800 million behind Titanic for that title.

Oh yeah, as for the rest of the box office, Sherlock Holmes was in the runner-up spot for the second straight week with $38.4 million.  Alvin and the Chipmunks tallied $36.6 million, good enough for the third spot.  And It’s Complicated ($18.7 million) and The Blind Side ($12.7 million) finished off the Top 5.

Check back next weekend when three films will try to bump Avatar off the top spot (which is highly unlikely):  Daybreakers, Leap Year, and Youth in Revolt.

  1. Avatar was a great movie, I just watched it a few day ago. I don’t usually go to the theather because I get nervious around a lot people but I think I’ll give this one a shot because people are saying that it’s even better on the big screen, I think it might be in 3D. Anyway the movie Avatar get two thumbs up from me, I watch all of my movies at voobymovies,com if anyone was wondering and it’s free
