It's pretty clear which film would top the Box Office this weekend. Opening in 3,400 theatres, James Cameron's Avatar slaughtered its competition taking, in $73 million. Worldwide, the 20th Century Fox film made an outstanding $232 million, almost recouping half of its rumoured $500 million budget as the most expensive film to be made ever. Read my review of it here.

Last week's top film Buena Vista's The Princess and The Frog, slips to second with $12.2 million and Warner Bros.' The Blind Side continues to impress in third, earning $10 million in its fifth week near the top.

Did You Hear About The Morgans the only other new film to open in the Top Ten, debuting in fourth with $7 million. The Sony Pictures film starring Sarah Jessica Parker and Hugh Grant continues to get disastrous reviews, earning back only an eighth of its lofty $58 million budget.

Oscar Best Picture contender Up in the Air continues to pull is some stellar numbers, coming in eighth this weekend with $3.1 million, only screening in limited release at 175 theatres.

Next week's tally should be interesting with all the amazing Christmas Day blockbuster releases arriving like It's Complicated, Nine, Sherlock Holmes and Alvin and The Chipmunks II.
