'Avatar' moves into third on domestic box office charts
LOS ANGELES (WKOW) -- James Cameron's "Avatar" took in $41.3 million at the weekend box office raising its domestic total to $491.8 million. Worldwide, "Avatar" has grossed $1.5 billion.
"Avatar" is now third on the all-time domestic box office charts surpassing "Star Wars" which took in $460.9 million domestically in its original run and several reissues over the years. However, factoring in today's higher admission prices, "Star Wars" remains well ahead in actual tickets sold.
"The Dark Knight" currently resides at number 2 domestically with $533.3 million. "Titanic" also directed by Cameron, is the highest domestic grossing movie with $600 million.
