Box Score: Avatar storms the weekend box office with $73 million.



Despite a severe snow storm that shut down theaters on the Eastern Seaboard, Avatar [AVATR] grossed an estimated $73.0 million at the weekend box office.  James Cameron [JCAME] directed the sci-fi adventure that utilized the latest in 3D and performance-capture technology.  3D screens accounted for 71% of the ticket sales.  With stellar reviews and word of mouth, Avatar should exhibit long legs at the box office.

Last weekend's top film, The Princess and the Frog [FROGP] declined 50% to $12.2 million.  The last shopping weekend before Christmas as well as the snow storm may have limited family outings to the Disney animated film.

The Blind Side [BLDSD] is still holding strong, tackling abother $10.0 million in its fifth weekend.  The football drama now stands at $164.7 million.

Did You Hear About the Morgans? [MRGNS] debuted in fourth place with a weak $7.0 million.  The romantic comedy does not seem to hold much appeal with moviegoers.
