“Avatar” took in $30 million this weekend and has now grossed
$594,472,387 domestically and is on track to topple “Titanic” ($600.8
million) as the top grossing domestic film in history.
“Edge of Darkness” (Warner Bros.), the new thriller starring Mel
Gibson, finished second at this weekend’s box office with $17.1 million.
“When in Rome” (Disney), a comedy with Kristen Bell that was panned by critics, placed third with $12.1 million.
Paul Dergarabedian, president of the box-office division of
Hollywood.com, said via email that “Avatar’s” $2 billion-plus
world-wide gross was “formerly unthinkable.” He predicted that “Avatar”
would surpass “Titanic’s” domestic gross record later in the week.
