So Avatar made a few million more then originally thought. The new 3D experience from James Cameron reached $77 million in the US Box Office, and is expected to continue to benefit from positive word of mouth.
The worldwide tally put Avatar at 242.5 million, well on its way to hopefully make a profit as it stands to be the most expensive motion picture ever made.
The total of $77 million is on the lower side considering most of the East coast was buried by a powerful blizzard (which was the reason I didn’t get to go, unlike Sam, a much braver fellow then I).
The record of highest grossing December film is still ‘I Am Legend’ which grossed $77.2 on its opening weekend.
