Avatar Pockets Another $16 Million Tuesday!


After earning an impressive $16.4 million domestically on Monday, James Cameron’s Avatar added another $16.1 million on Tuesday! That’s the second-highest number for a non-opening film ever (behind The Dark Knight‘s $20.9 million) and third-biggest Tuesday of all-time, trailing only The Dark Knight and Transformers, which opened on a Tuesday in 2007 and earned $27.9 million.

The blockbuster film has now reached $109.5 million in North America after just five days in theaters.

Overseas, the 20th Century Fox release has reached $191.8 million for a worldwide total of $301.3 million already.
