Propelled by enthusiastic word of mouth and repeat business unrivaled since Titanic, Avatar crossed the $1-billion mark in just its third week at the worldwide box office. Over the New Year's weekend, it brought in an estimated $68.3 million at the domestic box office to bring its North American total to $352.11 million after 17 days. IMAX screenings accounted for $66.4 million of that total, easily setting a record for the ultra-widescreen format. The movie already ranks No. 4 on the list of all-time box-office champs, behind Titanic ($1.84 billion), Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King ($1.12 billion, and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest ($1.07 billion). Even with Avatar out of the picture, the box office performed remarkably well.
HOW DO YOU GUYS FEEL ABOUT TITANIC/LOTR POSSIBLY BEING KNOCKED OFF THE TOP SPOT? I'M NOT MAD.
