Avatar beats December opening record with $77.3M domestic, $159 million outside the US!


Source NY Times: Avatar did break the December domestic opening record! With $77.3 million in box-office sales over the weekend, the movie narrowly beat the previous December opening record, held by 2007's "I Am Legend." Snow in the East Coast prevented moviegoers from going to theaters, which hurt the opening sales.

The movie has not been released to Japan or China yet, so the total box-office sales will only continue to increase. James Cameron still has a bit to go until he recovers the $460 million cost to produce and market the movie, but I think the movie will do fine. It was a great experience, even though the story was mediocre, it's still highly recommended to see!
