“Dear John” breaks “Avatar’s” reign at box office
Reuters reports that Relativity Media’s romantic military love story “Dear John,” opened to much higher numbers than expected. Despite the winter storm on the East Coast, it still pulled in $13.8M on opening night, heading it on course to bring in $32M over the weekend. This would beat “Avatar’s” expected pull of $23M for this weekend, making it the first film to bump “Avatar” off their 7-week number 1 coveted spot. If they do open to a $32M weekend, then they will beat the previous record for a Super Bowl weekend opening movie record, previously held by “Hannah Montana” at $31.1M.
