Avatar is unstoppable. Pulling in $48.5 million this weekend at the Box Office, it is now only a question of how many weeks it will be before it gets toppled by another film. It's been on top for four weeks now, which is pretty much a rarity in this day and age.
In second position was Sherlock Holmes, which still brought in a healthy $16.6 million in its third week, which on any other week would be enough to place it on top.
Lions Gate Films' Daybreakers was the top debut in fourth this week, taking in $15 million. The well-reviewed vampire action film stars Willem Dafoe and Ethan Hawke and is well on its way to recouping back its $20 million budget.
Leap Year starring Amy Adams and Matthew Goode debuted in sixth this weekend with $9.2 million in earnings. The film set in Ireland has a Transatlantic appeal with its American in Europe theme and should do well overseas when it sees a release there. Read my review of it here.
The Weinstein Co.'s Youth in Revolt starring Canadian Michael Cera opened in ninth with $7 million. The film which may have seen further revisions since its premiere at TIFF in September, has also received great reviews.
