Box Score: Avatar blew away the competition for best MLK Jr. weekend ever.



As the sci-fi epic picked up the Golden Globes for Best Drama and Best Director for James Cameron [JCAME], Avatar [HWAVA] banked a record $54.6 million over the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend to top the previous high of $46.0 million set by Cloverfield.  That Avatar was able to accomplish the feat in its fifth weekend of release is simply unimaginable.  After one month, Avatar has accumulated $505 million, on pace to surpass The Dark Knight's $533 million  and within reach of Cameron's own Titanic's $600 million all-time domestic record.

Book of Eli [BOELI] opened with a robust $38.0M, usually good enough for first place any other year.  The post-apocalyptic thriller attracted primarily a male audience.

The Lovely Bones [LVBON] grossed $20.5 million in its first weekend of wide release.  Paramount successfully targeted the young female demographic despite a poor showing during its limited run.

The weekend's third new offering The Spy Next Door [SPYND] came in fifth with $13.0 million over the long weekend.  The Jackie Chan [JCHAN] comedy appealed strictly to family moviegoers.
