Avatar Cubed: Canadian, North American & UK Box Office January 1, 2010 Weekend

Avatar places #1 in its third weekend in all three box office charts: Canada, North America and the UK, mind you that isn't any huge surprize as it's been doing amazing since it's release and there were no new films in release this weekend. There is even talk of it taking on Titanic's all time box office record. Only time will tell if that heart will continue to go on....

Update - Australian Box Office added - and yes, Avatar placed #1 there as well!

We tried going to see Avatar but it was sold out for that showing and the one after it! So we are waiting until the crowds die down.

It's still selling like hotcakes eh? When I was at the theatre a lot between Christmas & New Years the lobby was often full of people - but not for the films I was watching! I bet it will be out for quite awhile, The next 3D film I can think of is like... Piranah which isn't out til the summer. There must be something before that though.

It is rarely showing in 2D here so I'm going to wait to see it on DVD or on TMN. I'm not paying more for effects I can't see!
