“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.

    Finally, it’s about time that Avatar isn’t #1..

    I think this prediction will not hold true since Avatar will rose 90% Saturday and only drop 34% Sunday while Dear John will drop stiffly Saturday at -33% and -30% Sunday.

    I will assume that this will be the tally for the weekend;

    1. Avatar – 25.7 Million
    2. Dear John – 24.5 Million

    Avatar will end up no.1 again for the 8th weekend in a row. It will upset all such predictions.
