After seven straight weeks in theaters, you didn't really think that "Avatar" would fall from the top of the charts, did you? James Cameron's science fiction epic continued to barrel ahead of the competition on Friday with a $7.5 million intake, bringing the record-smashing film's cumulative domestic tally up to $572 million.

James Cameron's "Avatar" easily won its sixth straight weekend at the box office, but the film's victory over its current theatrical competitors is hardly the greatest cause for celebration — that distinction belongs to the Na'vi people's victory over Gotham City's personal superhero, as "Avatar" has officially surpassed Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight" as the second highest grossing film of all time at the domestic box office.

With six Friday performances under its belt, James Cameron's "Avatar" remains the top dog at the box office, once again pulling out a first place finish worth $9.1 million — and just like the late musician Wesley Willis, "Avatar" is now poised to whoop Batman's you know what. Read More...

'Avatar'The question is no longer whether or not James Cameron's "Avatar" will earn back its production budget, as the film's recent ascension past the $1 billion worldwide threshold addressed that factor rather decisively. Instead, the question has become whether or not Cameron will top himself.

For more than a decade now, "Titanic" has comfortably held the distinction of being the highest grossing feature film of all time, both domestic and worldwide. But in case you haven't noticed, there's a not-so-little iceberg called Pandora, filled with Na'vi and other dangerous indigenous creatures, heading straight for Cameron's previously established "Titanic" — and judging by the box office numbers, it's entirely possible that "Avatar" could sink the boat.

As expected based on Friday night's numbers, "Avatar" earned its third straight weekend box office victory with hardly any competition from its theatrical rivals. James Cameron's science fiction epic earned $68.3 million from Friday to Sunday, setting the box office record for a film in its third weekend in theaters. The final Sunday tally brings "Avatar's" domestic total to a walloping $352.1 million, with an even more massive foreign intake of $670.2 million. Read More...

Moviegoers are proving that Pandora is a planet worthy of multiple visits, as James Cameron's "Avatar" managed a first place finish on Friday evening, well on track for its third weekend victory in a row.

Cameron's 3D science fiction fantasy took in $25 million on Friday, bringing the movie's current domestic tally to $308.8 million in just fifteen days. Aside from "Avatar," only two other films have crossed the $300 million threshold quicker — "The Dark Knight" in ten days and "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" in fourteen. Read More...

This holiday weekend, "Sherlock Holmes" fell victim to one of the classic blunders, and no, it wasn't: "Never go against a Sicilian when death is on the line." Instead, Warner Bros. and the decision makers behind the sleuth supreme's onscreen rebirth made the mistake of going up against James Cameron's "Avatar," the 3D action epic that won first place for its second week in a row.
