Avatar #1 in Week 7: Canadian, North American, UK & Australian Box Office January 29, 2010 Weekend

Oscar nominations are out and if two film are leading the race: The Hurt Locker and Avatar with 9 nominations each but with The Hurt Locker on DVD and Avatar still in the theatre it feels that Avatar continue to dominate the box office in the upcoming weeks. I had a look back at last years pre and post Oscar nominations box office and there was little movement in terms on nominations on the lists with Slumdog Millionaire a firm #1 while Paul Blart vs Taken jockeyed to be #1.

I do hope that we see increase for several of the nominated films, because there are lots of great films out there. I recently caught up in the beautiful Tolstoy biopic The Last Station and I can widely recommend it. Also still in theatres is the wonderous journey that is The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus and touching & strong biopic The Young Victoria.

But since I've already seen them and most of the nominated films out there, it looks like I'll finally end up seeing Avatar. Now... where is it playing in 2D?
