Avatar Stays Strong in Week 6: Canadian, North American, UK & Australian Box Office January 22, 2010 Weekend

I feel like I'm running out of things to say about Avatar and the box office, although this was the first week when I was at the theatre it wasn't listed as sold out. I wonder how many folks are going back and revisiting it vs first time views. So far it's showing no signs of not being the top pick out there. Legion came in as #2 in Canada and North America, although it didn't open as strong as The Book of Eli. Invictus opens strong in Australia landing at #3 in it's first week, new on the UK charts are Brothers and Un prophète which land at #9 and #10 in their debut week. Un prophète will open here February 19, 2010.
