Box Score: Dear John dethrones Avatar.



The buying power of teenage girls reared its head again as the romance Dear John [DEARJ] knocked off Avatar [HWAVA] after its seven weeks stay atop the box office.  Lasse Hallstrom's [LHALL] feature adaptation of the novel by Nicholas Sparks ignited an estimated $32.4 million.  The pairing of Channing Tatum [CTATU] and Amanda Seyfried [ASEYF] attracted an audience that was 84% female and 66% under the age of 21.

Avatar finished out of the top spot for the first time at $23.6 million, a 25% decline in its eighth weekend.  The all-time domestic record now stands at $630 million and counting.

Moviegoers did not embrace From Paris with Love [FPWLV] as the R-rated actioner debuted in third place with just $8.1 million.  The Lionsgate release starred John Travolta [JTRAV] as a bald-headed secret agent with unorthodox methods.

Edge of Darkness [EDRKN] tumbled 59% in its second weekend to $7 million.  The revenge drama has earned $29 million thus far.

Banking on Oscar nominations for Jeff Bridges [JBRID] and Maggie Gyllenhaal [MGYLL], Crazy Heart [CRZHT] charted at the eighth spot with $3.65 million in its first weekend of wide expansion.  With seven previous weeks of limited release, the Fox Searchlight drama has totaled $11.2 million.
