Box Office Results: ‘Avatar’ continues to soar

Studio Estimates for Jan. 22-24:

1.  Avatar – $36 million
2.  Legion – $18.2 million
3.  The Book of Eli – $17 million
4.  The Tooth Fairy – $14.5 million
5.  The Lovely Bones – $8.8 million

7.  Extraordinary Measures – $7 million

And the reign of Avatar continues.  For the sixth straight weekend, Avatar takes the box office crown.  Taking in $36 million this past weekend, it is closing in fast on the all-time highest grossing film, Titanic.  With about $553 million domestic and $1.83 billion worldwide, there’s no question whether or not Avatar will become the largest grossing movie ever anymore.

Legion ($18.2 million) was able to beat out all of the new releases of the weekend to snag the runner-up spot.  The Book of Eli took the third spot with $17 million.  Meanwhile, Dwayne Johnson’s kid-comedy film The Tooth Fairy ($14.5 million) was fourth and The Lovely Bones ($8.8 million) landed the fifth spot.

Check back on Friday for new predictions when two new releases hit the theaters:  Edge of Darkness and the romantic-comedy When in Rome.
