According to BoxOfficeMojo Titanic is now in second place in the All Time International (non-US) chart with $1,242.1 million while Avatar is now first with $1,283.3 million after taking $107 million this weekend for a 6th consecutive weekend in first place.
On the worldwide front Titanic is still first, barely, $1,842.9 million against the $1,836.1 million for Avatar. That’s just 6.8 million between James Cameron’s latest and the movie that reigned supreme over the box office ocean for the past 12 years, yet another Cameron written and directed picture. What’s even more amazing is Avatar did all of this in just 38 days.
Now keep in mind that the Sunday numbers are just estimates and they might go a few millions down or up.
Finally Avatar finished another weekend in first place in the US with an estimated $36 million for a total of $552.7 million, having past The Dark Knight on Saturday in the All Time US chart for second place. It should bring down Titanic in no more then 10 days in North America and Canada (US box office includes both for those that don’t know).
I will come back tomorrow with the actual numbers and a full report on the weekend.
