Avatar, Avatar and Alvin Canadian, North American & UK Box Office December 25, 2009 Weekend

Avatar did well in both Canada and North America over the holiday weekend, in both cases making almost as much as it did in it's first weekend of release - which is very unusual. Sherlock Holmes debuts 2nd in both cases but 3rd spot in the UK whose top place went to none other than Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel which I never would have guessed. The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus had it's debut week here in Canada and landed at #12. It's strange to see that it's the last weekend of the 2009 year, it's certainly been an interesting year.
